Last night we went to watch some fireworks on the lake near our house. We went up to a road above the lake with a perfect view.
As soon as it turned dark we expected the fireworks to begin. We waited and waited and waited. My son lost his patience and was yelling he wanted to go home. He also does this fake crying which drives me crazy.
There was a swarm of mosquitos outside so I went into the car and closed the windows with my son yelling and screaming.
Somehow I managed to keep my cool. I’m not sure how but I was insistent after my own fireworks in the car I was going to see something light up the sky. At about 10pm the fireworks started to light up the sky.
Immediately my son stopped his fake crying.
“Hey Momma look at the fireworks!.”
I looked and smiled.
