While we were getting ready for bed tonight (or, as I like to call it, "avoiding brushing his teeth"), Miles decided to quiz me on some music. "Who sings this?" He started, "Happiness is magic..." "Hmm," I said. I knew the song, but couldn't quite place it. "I'm not sure." "You know!" Miles said, as … Continue reading Year 5, Day 283

Year 4, Day 289
In the latest of Miles's increasingly unwieldy bedtime stories, PJ Masks villain Night Ninja had shown up at our house (or a fictionalized version of it, anyway) because he had mistaken Miles for Catboy. Although Night Ninja realized his mistake after Miles removed his Catboy mask, Miles had already called for help in the form … Continue reading Year 4, Day 289
Year 4, Day 248: Miles’s Fearsome Fourth Halloween!
The day Miles has been waiting months for finally arrived today and there was no question that he was going to spend the whole day celebrating. Jaclyn picked up a dozen themed donuts to get the day started. Within moments, Miles was covered in chocolate. After breakfast, Miles saw little reason to get dressed for … Continue reading Year 4, Day 248: Miles’s Fearsome Fourth Halloween!
Year 4, Day 247
Last night, Jaclyn went out to meet a friend, presumably leaving me and Miles to do whatever we wanted for the evening. I should've known she had a task for me to complete. This particular time is was mandatory arts and crafts. Our job was to construct PJ Masks decorations for the trunk-or-treat event we … Continue reading Year 4, Day 247
Year 4, Day 239
It's just over a week until Halloween now and it better get here quickly, because every day Miles gets more and more "ideas." I've already talked about his existing plan (which will, sadly, be fully realized), but this morning he took it one step farther. "Guess what?" were his first words to me today. "For … Continue reading Year 4, Day 239
Year 4, Day 216
A couple weeks ago, Miles acquired his Halloween costume. Today, I saw a glimpse at my own Halloween future when I laid eyes upon Jaclyn's just-arrived costume... For reference: Only one is missing now, and it's that goober on the left. So it looks like I'll be Gecko for Halloween, the timid PJ Mask who … Continue reading Year 4, Day 216
Year 4, Day 215
As I was taking a shower this morning, Miles burst into the bathroom and declared, "Daddy look! I've got red bath bubbles!" He was holding a packet in his hand that would, in fact, make his bath water red. "Cool!" I said. "Yeah, and red is my favorite color!" "...now hold on. I thought blue … Continue reading Year 4, Day 215
Year 4, Day 196
I came home tonight to find that our house has a new protector. Why'd I even pay for a security system with this cat around?
Year 4, Day 170
Today was the event that compelled us to make the trip to New Jersey this week -- the graduation celebration in honor of Jaclyn's cousins, who recently finished their degree programs. It was a time for revelry, conversation, and exceptional food. Or, in Miles's case, collecting all the corn cob holders necessary for a complete … Continue reading Year 4, Day 170
Year 4, Day 132
Everyone can relax, Miles has watched the PJ Masks shorts on Disney+ enough times now to have memorized all the dialogue. https://videopress.com/v/jsvzJ6Ir?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata
