Fireworks #MicroblogMonday

Last year the Kid really wanted to go see fireworks. Little Monster needed to go to bed far earlier so we split up and the Kid and I went, against my better judgement. She hates loud noises. We went early and ran into friends and had a grand time. The fireworks were pretty. Afterward the kid had a 3 hour panic attack about a variety of things she had been worrying about... and it was too loud.

This year the girls and my spouse are on vacation and I'm home alone. I think I'll skip the fireworks.


  1. We watched them from afar (it really dampens the noise level), which is still the only way the kids will watch them. And then we watched on television because, again, volume control. It really is a scary sound.

  2. I think I'd be with you. Quietness would win out for me, as well. How was it?

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on my post today. You gave me lots to think about!
