I finally found something my son is afraid of, Fireworks!! We decided we weren't going to one of the big shows in case he got scared. That turned out to be a good plan. So my sister and I went and bought about $40 worth of fireworks to shoot off at the house. He liked the sparklers, they were pretty. The first time we lit one of the other ones he took off running for the house. Then he came and hid behind me. So I picked him up and held him. He was better there and managed to watch three or four more. Then we did this one that made a horendus whistling noise. The hellion was done after that. He looked at me and said "mommy, I done. Go inside now!" I was proud of him. He stuck it out for a while. Now he is asking when we are going to do more.
