The best nights, as you can probably imagine, are the ones where I get home around 10:30 after working all day and hosting a trivia show to find that Miles is both still awake and screaming at the top of his lungs. Last night was one of those nights. This time, however, he seemed to … Continue reading Year 4, Day 153

"Oh DAD-DEE! I'm a GIRL NOW!!!"
Year 4, Day 108
Jaclyn went out to lunch with a friend today, which meant Miles and I were free to go where Mommy would never tread: the recently opened Day & Night Cereal Bar in Uptown. The last time I went to a cereal bar was during our trip to Colorado back in 2018, a time when Miles … Continue reading Year 4, Day 108

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. "I'm going to tell you a story, daddy!" he declared, clearly seeing an … Continue reading Year 3, Day 203

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.
Year 3, Day 157
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!
Year 3, Day 156
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.
