I love the Fourth of July. I am a little kid at the fireworks show, oooing and ahhhing over the ever surprising array of colors and designs that light up the sky. What made tonight even more memorable was sharing the experience with my eldest daughter. She was leery of the bright lights and loud bangs so our ordinarily independent girl snuggled deep into my lap and fell fast asleep…blocking out all that didn’t suit her.
What do you do when life gets too loud and bright?
