Hosting trivia at Legion Brewing for as long as I have has made me part of the family at that fine establishment. Which means I occasionally get invited to events like tonight's "Friends and Family" preview for their new location on Morehead St. Jaclyn and I were happy, to say the least, to make a … Continue reading Year 5, Day 64
A look at the chaos that Miles introduces to this house every day. No one told him to do anything with this baggie. No one told him to throw it away. No one told him to put something in it. No one told him to put it anywhere in particular. And Miles, of his own … Continue reading Year 5, Day 9
Getting Miles out the door in the morning is always an adventure. Most times I'm able to stay somewhat removed from that chaos, as I'm typically showering and getting dressed at the same time. I might hear Miles's screams and Jaclyn's plaintive, exasperated requests through the walls, but I've got to get myself presentable before … Continue reading Year 4, Day 222
At Miles's insistence, we all rode in the car the other night to pick up dinner. I sat in the back with him while Jaclyn drove (again, his choice).

I parked and got out of my own car, the other vehicle still blinking and beeping all the while. After about thirty seconds, I started wondering if anyone was going to shut … Continue reading Year 3, Day 297
Pictured: the smirk of a child who just successfully forced his mother to chase him all over the place as she tried to clean his poopy butt. He's a stinker in more ways than one.
At some point this evening, I became aware that I had set my phone down somewhere and forgotten about it. It's not so unusual, and I was busy with Miles, so I didn't give it much thought at first. After a while, though, having looked around the house to no avail, I started to get … Continue reading Year 3, Day 134
I discovered the placement of this objet d'art after Miles was asleep tonight. Considering the precise, balanced location of this ball, it looks like we evidently have a tiny feng shui expert on our hands.
