Do your kids like fireworks?

Gotta love 4th of July weekend...
Two of my neighbors, plus one house in the distance, have been setting off fireworks for well over an hour (not all at once, but it's like they're taking turns)

Sophia (3) is scared. Crying. She loved them last year, but today, she's been sick, and she's exhausted... but she can't sleep with the noise.

Paul (3) is fascinated with them.

Rowan (7) thought they were pretty cool for the first 10 minutes, then told me, "I wish they'd just stop!"

..and my baby, Lucy... she is NOT happy.

  • My kids do love them. My middle son was born on the 4th of naturally he LOVES them. When we watch them he says the green ones are just for him. It is too cute. The other two boys love them too.

  • Only one does. I have all the kids who are afraid of fireworks at my house right now. Our town has their big show tonight. I keep all the ones who do not like them with me so all my friends can go with their kids who do like them. DH takes our one who likes fireworks to the show. Most of these kids like the small ones the neighbors set off. They are just scared of the big ones.

  • They love them. They are 11, 9, 8 and 5. A couple of the neighbors have been setting them off so they keep running outside to watch.
    Now sure how the baby will react. It's his first 4th of July (he'll be 1 in a couple weeks). I have a feeling he won't be too keen on them but we're going to go watch them on Monday. He'll survive.
