We took the boys to see Fireworks on the 4th of July. It was a nice show and it was not way too loud. The small one looked at the first first few, then turned his head away from them, resting his tiny noggin against my chest. "Poor thing's scared," I thought, so I tried to make him feel better by covering the exposed ear and stroking what's left of his hair (see "Haircut 100" below).
Wouldn't you know that booger fell asleep?! He slept through the whole thing. He wasn't scared, he was bored! Apparently at 2 and a half and he's seen it all.
