Miles's dinner request tonight consisted of the following: A waffleFishIce cream (naturally) I wasn't there to witness it, but I think Jaclyn took the "Hey, if it'll get him to eat" approach.
During dinner, Jaclyn asked Miles if he needed to go potty."No!" he exclaimed reflexively. Then, in an apparent moment of enlightenment, "...I need to go potty."Jaclyn rushed him to the potty and he sat down, bits of food still on his fingers. Jaclyn grabbed a napkin and started wiping him off. "I got food on … Continue reading Year 3, Day 168

With the end of another grueling week of isolation (and work) (and parenting), we rewarded ourselves with some much-deserved burgers. Miles certainly enjoyed his!
Today, Miles got to celebrate another Mother's Day with his beloved mommy... ...and he also got to discover a new love...when he consumed his first Happy Meal.
Jaclyn came home from grocery shopping today with several bags to unload. Miles, being a dutiful son, decided to help her unpack it all... ...right in front of the door, on the opposite end of the house from the kitchen.
Jaclyn: "Do you want pizza for dinner?" Miles: "Yep." Jaclyn: "What do you want on your pizza?" Miles: "Birthday candles."
