My son is old enough to have some eagerness to watch the NDP fireworks. Also because he has watched it a couple of times. No, he is not old, only 2+, but we have watched it from far during the many past NDP rehearsals in the last few weeks.
Yet, today, the actual NDP day, he was sleeping during the fireworks display. My dad wanted to wake him up to watch, but I said no need. Because earlier we have asked him to sleep (the usual afternoon sleep/nap) but he didn't follow. So, for the next few days, I will remind him of how he has missed the fireworks.
What an "evil" dad :P
