Mira's first fireworks... or lack thereof

On the fourth of July every year, our HOA puts on this big professional fireworks show. It's a mixed blessing really. On one hand, it's nice to have this great show that we can see right from our backyard. We can avoid big crowds and traffic and just chill in the backyard. On the other hand, the show regularly gets all the dogs in the neighborhood barking and all the car alarms honking. So it can get kinda noisy. Plus all the neighbors buy their own amateur fireworks and those go on for days.

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?

Ah yes, those pesky neighbors who get their own fireworks and light them from their backyards. How silly of them. ; )

Glad Mira slept through it all.
