It sounds like a war zone outside our house



As I figured, there would be no sleep happening tonight. Where we live, people begin celebrating the fourth of July early, and carry on doing so a day or two beyond the fourth. 

It sounds like war zone at night, and into the wee hours of the morning. 

I wouldn’t care so much if they did this during the day but when this goes on all night, it’s excessive. I suspect the reason it’s done at night is because the explosives they’re lighting off, are very illegal in Ohio. 

Anyway, with loud explosions going off all around us, there’s no way the boys can fall asleep. 



It’s currently 3:45 am and I just got Emmett to fall asleep. The poor kid was so tired and overstimulated from all the noise, he had a massive meltdown at 2 am. He’s currently sleeping on the couch, with music streaming through the Amazon Echo, as a means of drowning out the noise. 

Elliott on the other hand, isn’t even close to falling asleep. I’m dying right now, and want so badly to close my eyes. 

These fireworks will likely go on for the next few nights. It happens every single year, and there’s nothing we can do about it.
