Jaclyn: "I'm going over to my sister's tonight." Me: "Sounds good! We'll be fine!"
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 126
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.

My first thought: "What did I do?"As it turned out, Miles had been collecting his Duplo blocks in the middle of the living room floor and asking me to sit down and build "choo-choo train" out … Continue reading Year 3, Day 98
We take naps whenever we can get 'em.
This morning as I was brewing coffee, Miles insisted I sit with him for breakfast. I was initially flattered and delighted, but then, as he started moving his chairs, I realized what he meant and the reality was...well, weird. Despite not being an ideal seating arrangement for breakfast or looking at one another, it still … Continue reading Year 3, Day 59
