Anyway, this fourth of July was to be Mira's first experience with fireworks. The show wasn't supposed to start till 9:45pm, way after Mira's bedtime. So I was hoping that she might just sleep all the way through it.
The neighbors started in with their mini-explosives early in the evening, and there went the dogs bark bark barking. And I was worried that all the ruckus would keep Mira up, but she went to bed right on time at 9pm. Then the professional show started up and there went the cannons boom boom booming. And I was worried that all the ruckus would wake Mira up, but she went right on sleeping. Until the show's finale. Then she finally woke up. I took her over to the window to see the last few seconds of the show. She watched quietly with big eyes. And when the show was over, she nursed right back to sleep.
She took the whole thing in stride. Much like she always does. What an easy baby. How lucky am I?
