As a child, I LOVED going to the fireworks. The 4th of July was a huge holiday in my home. Navy brat, remember? So as a new mom, I was soooo excited to share this with my son. Only one problem…he is a sensory child.
Loud noises, sirens, bells and even something as simple as an automatic flush toilet can set him off.
So you can imagine how well the past few years have gone at our local firework display. So this year, we are firework free. Instead we stocked up on movies, snacks and are snuggled up on the couch. I can’t imagine a better way to spend this holiday with my family. No tears for us this year!
For those of you with sensory kids…how do you spend the 4th of July?
