TFW you just got your COVID booster and, while you have ice cream now, you aren't sure it's enough to offset the discomfort of getting a shot in the arm.

Year 5, Day 177
This morning, when Jaclyn informed Miles of the plans for the day, he had questions. "What's a parade?" was chief among them, as Miles has never really seen one before. "Well...it's hard to explain," I fumbled. "There's a bunch of people there..." "Is there dragons there?" was somehow his next question. "Well, there'll probably be … Continue reading Year 5, Day 177
Year 5, Day 168
Miles's Bathtime Ice Cream Stand, where flavors include orange, mango, and seaweed salad and no scoops are used because "I can just use my hand."

Brain freeze! (Also, the sticker chart continues working like a charm.)
Year 5, Day 79
An update on Miles's sticker chart: it's been working well so far! In fact, this was the first week since he started that Miles was able to earn all of his stickers, which meant that he finally earned the ultimate reward of eternal life ice cream.

Year 4, Day 221

He watched closely as I scooped some ice cream into the bowl. As I placed a spoon in the bowl, Miles said, "No! I … Continue reading Year 4, Day 221
Year 4, Day 199
The opportunities the past two years have afforded us to see some of our closest family members have been greatly diminished, which has been difficult for a number of reasons, not the least of which is robbing Miles's aunts, uncles, and grandparents of the chance to see him at various developmental stages. This weekend, however, … Continue reading Year 4, Day 199
Year 4, Day 185
There's virtually no way to keep a kid clean when he's eating ice cream, but why oh why do we let him have it in a cone? Because it's fun, that's why.
