Last night, for the second time ever, I was forced to abscond into the night with Miles who, flagrantly refusing to sleep or cease his screaming, left me with little recourse but to drive him around until his ass fell asleep.

A massive storm swept through Charlotte right around rush hour today, and unfortunately there was no way to keep either of us dry as we made our escape from daycare in the downpour. Miles's review of the rain:

Okay, I didn't look very closely at the weather before we left, but there's evidently a massive winter storm covering the entire northeast of the US right now. This has been abundantly clear throughout our drive (while our visibility has been quite the opposite). The driving has been treacherous to say the least, but it … Continue reading Day 276: Baby’s First Snow!
