We started today off with a hike up to Chimney Rock, and Miles woke up absolutely ready for it (despite robbing us of a good night's sleep). While the ascent up the mountain is made easier with staircases, it still manages to be a pretty rigorous hike. I thought Miles might get tired out and … Continue reading Year 3, Day 256
This evening, Miles marched into the kitchen. "I want to go in the ice cream shop," he declared in no uncertain terms. "Who said anything about getting ice cream?" I asked. "MILES," he answered. ...we did not go to the ice cream shop.
Miles got a haircut today, then went out for ice cream with his buddy Duke. He actually taught Duke how to eat his first ice cream cone! And of course Miles ate his "Superman ice cream, with sprinkles" without ending up wearing a substantial portion of it. Kidding. Of course he ended up wearing it.
With a rare morning off today, I wasn't exactly in a hurry to get out of bed. When Miles finally came into the room, he was eager to take advantage of this, clambering up into the bed and plopping down beside me.

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.
In a move that will come as no surprise to regular readers, Miles woke up insisting that we obtain ice cream today. Hey, I can think of worse Friday night rituals!
Miles's love of ice cream has reached questionable levels. This isn't the first time he's tried to eat a picture of food in a book.
When Miles awoke this morning, he immediately issued a decree. "Mommy! I wanna go to the ice cream shop!" We found his demand to be fair, if slightly unreasonable at 7:00 am, and so we promised that, at the end of the day, we would all go get ice cream. Miles was delighted. So delighted, … Continue reading Year 3, Day 143
Not a day goes by anymore that Miles fails to request (to put it mildly) one of two things. When we pick him up from daycare, and before arriving home, Miles will insistently say, "I want ice cream. I want donuts." This week, at different times, he has received both. The road to our ice … Continue reading Year 3, Day 114
Today is Jaclyn's birthday, a fact Miles was made aware of as we were leaving the house this morning. "Can you tell mommy, 'Happy birthday'?" I asked. He then proceeded to sing the entire "Happy Birthday" song to her. Not a bad way for mommy to start her birthday! The only thing Jaclyn wanted for … Continue reading Year 2, Day 339
