I didn't join Miles and Jaclyn on their trip to Urban Air Trampoline Park this afternoon, but my understanding is that Miles spent most of his time at the ball pit looking like this:
Year 5, Day 299
"Daddy?" Miles asks after nightfall. "Will you play Dark Hallway with me?" Dark Hallway is a "game," the origins of which are unclear to me, that involves just want the name implies -- turning out all the lights and making the hallway and any adjacent rooms pitch black. Beyond that, however, things get perhaps a … Continue reading Year 5, Day 299
Year 5, Day 263
When it comes to his friends at school, Miles comes home almost every day talking about the plans they've all made to have hang out and have play dates. All of these plans are, naturally, free from absolutely any parent input on any side, but it's nice to at least know Miles is making friends. … Continue reading Year 5, Day 263
Year 5, Day 225
Recently, Miles has started developing a fondness for mazes. Introduced to them on the back of a children's menu at some point, he now actively seeks them out, going so far as to specifically pick out food when the boxes feature mazes on the back. So when we told him he was going to a … Continue reading Year 5, Day 225
Year 5, Day 211

Year 5, Day 124
Miles has a ton of activities coming up at daycare this week and next, including today's "water play" trip. While I never get to see these trips firsthand, it's always nice to get a brief glimpse into how his 9-5er is going. https://videopress.com/v/KoU2WRgz?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata&useAverageColor=true As I said, BRIEF. Looks like he's having fun, what with the … Continue reading Year 5, Day 124
Year 5, Day 121
Having accomplished most of what I set out to do this weekend (and spent about as much money as I possibly could) by COB yesterday, today's final day of HeroesCon 2022 was wide open to be completely focused on one thing -- making it an experience that catered completely to Miles. Surveying an exhibit hall … Continue reading Year 5, Day 121
Year 5, Day 86
In which Miles has his first encounter with a slip 'n' slide and quickly makes a decision about it. https://videopress.com/v/ESq5yatN?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata&useAverageColor=true Not having one bit of it.
Year 5, Day 75
This is a couple days late, but in addition to attending Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, we also headed down to Fort Mill, SC to visit the annual Strawberry Festival. Full disclosure, I wasn't sure what we were doing until we got there and I saw vendors, carnival rides, and (yes) a wrestling ring. … Continue reading Year 5, Day 75
Year 4, Day 161
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...
