As is typical of the 7:00-8:00 hour, Miles was was wired tonight, running roughshod over the house and wanting to do absolutely anything OTHER than eat dinner (or let Dad watch Jeopardy! in peace). After he grabbed his stuffed dragon from his bedroom and promptly threw it across the dinner table, nearly knocking over dishes … Continue reading Year 3, Day 351
Every morning, despite my efforts to convince him otherwise, Miles insists on taking the long way to the car. https://videopress.com/v/kk424MLy?preloadContent=metadata
We wouldn't want to bring Miles to Lake Lure and not spend some time outside. Miles couldn't wait to get out of the house. He even put "his" shoes on all by himself. His time outdoors today was divided into two opposing experiences. First, water, as Miles ran and played along Lake Lure. He can … Continue reading Year 3, Day 276
I'd imagine this photo looks a lot like the last thing criminals in Gotham see before getting POWed, BAPed, and BORTed into unconsciousness. This blurry photo is the only evidence we have of the existence of the "Bat-Man." Seriously though, Miles loves his new PJs.

Jaclyn's felt more tired than usual lately, which means that we're much closer to 100% at this point and that getting out the door for work in the morning has started to turn into a mad rush. Considering … Continue reading Year 3, Day 204

Miles could not be happier about it, especially considering we were headed to a park in Black Mountain this morning. TAKE ME TO THE SLIDE! After a nice walk around the lake, Miles got to experience the joys (and initial trepidation) … Continue reading Year 3, Day 194
After six months of limited contact with the outside world, we're finally able to (hopefully) release the pressure valve that is threatening to create a Shining-like scenario in our home. Today we departed Charlotte for the first time in months for a weekend in the mountains of western NC. We've all been looking forward to … Continue reading Year 3, Day 192
Since Miles liked running under the hose a few weeks back, we decided to get him a sprinkler to enjoy for the waning days of summer. What I did not expect was for him to go through something akin to the stages for grief as he engaged with it for the first time. https://videopress.com/v/ryWJUqtl?preloadContent=metadata
Tonight, Miles walked into the kitchen, yelled, "Mickey Mouse!", pulled his underwear off, then tore ass all over the house butt-naked.That's it. That's the whole post.
Miles and I play a rousing game of "Stay in that Room and Do Some Work, Daddy!"
