Well, Miles was sick a couple days ago, and now it's evidently my turn. I woke up this morning coughing and hacking, barely able to muster the willpower to crawl out of bed and stagger to the bathroom. I was pretty groggy when Jaclyn and Miles were headed out the door this morning, but in … Continue reading Year 2, Day 213

Knowing Miles pretty well at this point, I almost knew what to expect before I even looked in the tub. Yep, he has started moving balls from … Continue reading Year 2, Day 21
