Someone may have managed to nab some chocolate at an hour that was dubiously close to "breakfast time" today. Taking full advantage of a holiday and his parents' waning willpower on a rainy weekend spent inside. What a stinker!
When Miles was told he needed to get ready for his daycare's Valentine's Day party tomorrow, he got a little...excited. He later attempted to eat his dinner...with a string of Valentine's cards wrapped around his head. But hey, at least he's eating?
