For some reason (not that he needs one), Miles insisted on bringing a small container of hand sanitizer in the car with him this morning. After we arrived at daycare, the bottle was no longer in his hand or the cup holders on his car seat. I scanned the backseat to no avail. "Miles," I … Continue reading Year 4, Day 223
Miles around 7:00 PM, finishing a post-dinner snack: "Oh Dad-dee! One Teddy Graham is hi-ding!" Me, an hour later, while cleaning up: Well I don't know what I expected...

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
