So excited about his own pizza in his OWN box that he can't even make it to the table before showing me.
Miles and I sat down this afternoon to build a Halloween cookie diorama (this year a haunted farm). Naturally, Miles started voraciously consuming the building supplies before we could begin. https://videopress.com/v/jCEfmoRN?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata
There was a time, not so long ago, when I was able to talk at my wife in peace. Sure, she still didn't hear half of what I was saying, but at least I could speak without being drowned out by eardrum-shattering screaming. Now, almost any time I start talking to Jaclyn (or vice versa), … Continue reading Year 4, Day 189
Miles around 7:00 PM, finishing a post-dinner snack: "Oh Dad-dee! One Teddy Graham is hi-ding!" Me, an hour later, while cleaning up: Well I don't know what I expected...

In the interest of having something for breakfast this morning, I snagged a banana on my way to the door. This was, as you might expect, a big mistake, since Miles never wants anything more than something YOU have that HE does not. Within seconds, Miles was reduced to a limp mass of toddler on … Continue reading Year 4, Day 110
About a week ago, Jaclyn sent me a text reading, "Did you want to go strawberry picking at all?" This being, to the best of my recollection, the very first time we've ever discussed it, I replied, "Do you seriously think that's something I've ever given one second of thought to?" Anyway, this morning we … Continue reading Year 4, Day 79
