This morning, I came downstairs to absolute chaos. Miles was crying, Jaclyn was frustrated, and I was left wondering just how things got to this point. It was shoes. Today was Miles's first day of school at Cadence Academy. While he won't be attending daily until after Labor Day, the new students' first days are … Continue reading Year 5, Day 187: Baby’s First Day of Pre-K!
Year 4, Day 331
Last night, upon being told it was once again snowing outside, Miles quickly decided that merely looking through the window was insufficient. You'll notice he at least had the good sense to put shoes -- his MOTHER'S shoes -- on before attempting to leave the house.
Year 4, Day 201
The completely normal way we typically try to leave the house.
Year 4, Day 138
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). Naturally, we sat back there cutting up with each other, so much so that I never even noticed he had managed to remove both of his … Continue reading Year 4, Day 138
Year 3, Day 190
Jaclyn picked up some new running shoes today, and Miles wasted no time removing them from their box and putting the shoes where they belong. He then brought the empty box to the back door (for transportation to the recycling bin) and carried the paper from inside the box (which it later seemed was his … Continue reading Year 3, Day 190
Year 3, Day 96
Miles got suspiciously quiet for a few minutes this afternoon. I soon discovered that he had been hard at work on an art installation.
Year 3, Day 10
When mommy's away...
Year 2, Day 245
This weekend, Miles came home from his grocery store trip with a pair of Elmo slippers. He was...excited about these. He didn't want to take the slippers off for bed last night, which I allowed, but he was EXTREMELY incensed to discover he couldn't wear them to school this morning. When it was time to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 245
Year 2, Day 50
I came home from trivia tonight to find more items Miles has stashed in strange places. Maybe he was trying to remind me to put socks on and...play ball with him?
This morning, we joined our friends George, Sam, Franklin, and Leeanne for breakfast and, mostly, so we could all put Miles and his contemporary, Audrey, on the floor and intently watch them interact with each other like we were watching a Bachelorette finale or something. Audrey cooed, and Miles...well, made some zombie sounds at her. … Continue reading Day 271
