Today really could've gone horribly. We took a red eye flight back to Charlotte directly from last night's wedding, and I knew the experience would test the limits of just how amenable Miles is to air travel. He might be up screaming and crying throughout the flight, unable to get comfortable and fall (and stay) … Continue reading Year 2, Day 189
In my experience, one of the harshest lessons of getting older has always been a persistently growing reluctance to get out of bed in the morning. When I was younger, I always thought there was a point where I would just adapt (or at least resign myself to the fact that I was never going … Continue reading Year 2, Day 149
We were fortunate to have a smooth, uneventful trip to Boston last week, but this morning's return flight was always bound to be more arduous. First, we were leaving the morning after the wedding. Second, we were staying in Cape Cod and were going to need to drive at least two hours to get to … Continue reading Year 2, Day 126

This year, with Miles finally aware enough to recognize both Spider-Man and Captain America, I was determined to spend Father's Day the way all fathers dream of -- forcing my hobbies and interests upon him in the … Continue reading Year 2, Day 111: Baby’s First HeroesCon!

Alternating between fussing and (seriously) blowing a high-pitched whistle, Miles ensured that not only were my attempts to sleep good … Continue reading Year 2, Day 108
Jaclyn has been out of town for work since Tuesday, and while I've had the services of his usual babysitter, Lisa, the last two nights while I've hosted trivia, mornings (and late nights) have been the Brian & Miles Show. Largely, it's gone well. Tuesday night was a little bumpy (but I had a feeling … Continue reading Year 2, Day 94
