Just a little dude, getting down on the playground.
Being a parent is regularly overwhelming, and there is absolutely no question that I need frequent breaks from my family (if only to cower in a corner and rock back and forth in silence for a few minutes). But this morning as I was dropping Miles off at daycare, he clung to my leg and … Continue reading Year 3, Day 336

Sound the alarm -- Miles has now eaten his first ice cream sandwich.
Miles awoke from a nap today to find that Jaclyn and I had gone out with our visiting European friends and had left him in the care of my parents.
