Miles had a half day at school today, and in the interest of helping Jaclyn out I scheduled an early afternoon eye exam for myself, giving me a reason to leave work a bit early and keep our kid occupied. Excited as ever to have a "Daddy/Miles Day," Miles had a ton of stuff he … Continue reading Year 5, Day 348

Year 5, Day 334
One of my New Year's Resolutions was to do a better job of looking out for myself, especially where time away from work is concerned. After racking up a ton of vacation time during the pandemic, I've had an ongoing problem of failing to use virtually any of it unless I had a specific trip … Continue reading Year 5, Day 334
Year 5, Day 161
Friday nights are for kicking a few drinks back over pizza with your main man.
Year 5, Day 160
Jaclyn is on a weekend trip to a (get this) silent yoga spa*, which means Miles and I deviated just a tad from his normal bedtime routine tonight and, instead of reading a story, opted to watch some monster truck videos. At one point, I wanted to acknowledge the actual people driving the trucks, since … Continue reading Year 5, Day 160
Year 4, Day 237
Jaclyn had to go out of town for work today, leaving Miles and I free to have a highly-anticipated "Guys' Night." After finishing his swim class, I asked him what he wanted for dinner -- fried shrimp or Bojangles. And yes, I asked this question knowing full-well what his response would be.* "Bogangles," he replied. … Continue reading Year 4, Day 237

Jaclyn: "I'm going over to my sister's tonight." Me: "Sounds good! We'll be fine!"
Year 4, Day 127
I brought Miles out with me after work tonight because 1) I had promised to both pick him up AND meet friends out and 2) to give Jaclyn a little more time to herself this evening. Miles wasn't super keen on the idea of not going directly home after daycare, but fortunately we had a … Continue reading Year 4, Day 127
Year 4, Day 108
Jaclyn went out to lunch with a friend today, which meant Miles and I were free to go where Mommy would never tread: the recently opened Day & Night Cereal Bar in Uptown. The last time I went to a cereal bar was during our trip to Colorado back in 2018, a time when Miles … Continue reading Year 4, Day 108
Year 4, Day 58
Jaclyn left early this morning for a workout, and the door had barely closed before Miles proudly marched into my bathroom to declare, "I'm babysitting you! While mommy's gone, I'm in charge!" This is how he was dressed: He then revealed that he was "ready to go out in the snow."
Year 3, Day 199
Yes, Miles actually decided to try eating my face last night. What can I say -- the kid is hyped for the new football season!
