 Its 11 pm here on the west coast & our flippin neighbors are setting off fire works in their backyard, keeping my 2 year old awake because he's scared. I understand its the 4th of July & all but seriously.. 11 pm is gettin pretty late & some people have kids who cant sleep because of all the racket... Would it be bitchy of me to ask them to stop if they are still settin them off around midnight?

I have a fan going that is muffling the sound of the fireworks. My 10.5 month old dd is afraid of them too.  Its 11:09 here and they are still constantly going off.  Sorry I'm not sure what you should do, they are going off everywhere over here (I live in Portland OR) so I can't really ask anyone to stop lol.  Good luck.

I don't think it would be bitchy if you went over and said hey I have a 2 yr old that is still awake because your fireworks are scaring the crap out of him, would you mind stopping for the night.  If they continued then I would go into bitch mode lol

Ok..I said something to my SO about it & he said something about being bitchy. lol Ok..well I aint even close to bitchy yet. When I'm dealing with a grumpy 2 year old in the morning because neither of us got sleep, then I will be in super bitch mode.

I mean,there are still some pretty big fireworks going off quite a ways away..but I mean, these are basically going off right outside our window.

This happens to us every year so we just run their fans and play their radio's a little bit louder then usual...the neighbors that set them off already know I have a 15 month old so for me it wouldn't work going and asking them to knock it off...
