Who Won the Week — 02/06/2022

The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

This week, the Who Won the Week winner is Brandon Dahl, a 2-year-old toddler, who walked into the bedroom of his sleeping parents, Nathan and Kayla Dahl, with a warning. Brandon tugged on his mother’s foot and utter two of the few words he’d learned. “Mama, hot. Mama, hot.”

Brandon’s mother opened her eyes, turned around, and saw flames in the doorway. None of the home’s smoke detectors went off, and the parents, who were recovering from COVID-19, hadn’t smelled the smoke. Volunteer firefighters got Brandon and his four siblings to safety before the house was completely consumed by the fire.

The toddler is being credited by his family with saving their lives from a fire that destroyed the family’s home. Little Brandon doesn’t quite understand what he did, his mother said, but he enjoys the attention he gets when strangers recognize him and say, “You’re a hero!”

So congratulations Brandon. You won the week this week.

What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?

      They were very fortunate that their toddler woke them up. And I’m reminded to change the batteries in my smoke detector!

        We have two plus 2 carbon monoxide alarms and a gas detector too. Good lad for waking up his folks.
