When is a late nap and a hyperactive child after 8pm a good thing? On Independence Day! 8pm and Jack was running in circles, because he knew fireworks would start at 9pm!
It made up for the sloooooooooooooow morning the night before, as I was woken up by one son or the other at 3:30, 4:30, 5, 5:30, and 6 for good.
Last year the fireworks scared the crap out of Jack. This year, we brought ear protection. He lasted longer, but it was still a bit loud and scary. This from a kid who is rarely scared by anything!
