Miles woke me up this morning to let me know he was leaving to go get donuts. "Miles!" Jaclyn called from the living room. "That was supposed to be a surprise!" Surprise or not, Father's Day got off to a great start. Not only did they return in short order with breakfast from Reigning Donuts, … Continue reading Year 3, Day 117
The coronavirus has got most everything on lockdown, but fortunately we were able to salvage St. Patrick's Day with some help from the Dropkick Murphys' livestream. By the end of the night, we were holding a family dance party on the rug (SPECIFICALLY on the rug. Miles wouldn't let us dance anywhere else). I would've … Continue reading Year 3, Day 21
There are a lot of (mostly hypocritical) people out there blasting last night's Super Bowl Halftime show, but Miles sure as hell loved it.
Today wasn't the best as far as Miles's potty training has gone. Despite numerous attempts, under extreme protest, to compel Miles to use his potty, he relied on his pull-ups to do the waste receiving most of the day. But just as Jaclyn was about to lose hope and resort to extreme measures (i.e., going … Continue reading Year 2, Day 335

The cup itself still had his name on it though, so I figured we could sort out the obvious mix-up in the morning. I was confident, however, that … Continue reading Year 2, Day 255
Tonight, Miles retrieved TWO yoga mats from our bedroom, laid them out on the living room floor, and started...well...see for yourself.
Miles attended his third political rally today, and this might have been his favorite yet. The real reason he was really excited about this one ultimately had less to do with Mayor Pete and more to do with Mayor Pete's music selection.
Miles reads a lot of books about animals and knows most of the major animal sounds at this point, so today we thought we'd take his animal experience to a new level. We've taken him to an wildlife preserve before and his love of dogs is well-documented, but today we wanted to bring him a … Continue reading Year 2, Day 229
