We live very close to where our town puts on their July 4 fireworks show (it's practically in our backyard). I think the fireworks are scheduled for 9:30 pm this year, which is 90 minutes after M usually goes to bed. You can definitely hear them from our house, and they are LOUD. I'm trying to decide how we should handle this. They will almost definitely wake him up if we put him to sleep at his normal time.
Should we do our normal bedtime routine 8 pm, go get him out of the crib when he wakes up 90 minutes later, and try to put him back down again when the fireworks are over? Or should we try to keep him up until 10 pm, which would probably involve encouraging him to take a late nap so he's not too tired/cranky? If we do the latter, we could walk down to see the fireworks, which he might enjoy (or might terrify him, I really don't know what to expect).
