fireworks???? we all know july 4th is coming up and i know my boyfriend and his family will want our son to stay up and/or at least come out with us in his stroller to be included in the watching of all these magnificent fireworks..blah, blah, blah.. i would be perfectly content staying home with our son so as to keep his nightly routine/bedtime on track. however, i know that i have no choice in the matter (which is obsurd because i'm his mother!). so, how can i deal with this? should i be looking at this as a nice family activity even though our son prob won't be awake for it? i'm always worried about the loudness of the fireworks for a baby's ears.. they hurt my ears for goodness sake!! any of you taking your little ones (like, little little ones like my son's age) and feeling okay about it??
