Miles was really excited to let me know he had personally packed a special surprise in my lunch bag. I've gotta hand it to him -- he may have a lot of learning to do about appropriate behavior, but he's always willing to share even his most coveted snack treats.
When Miles decorates Halloween cookies, it's always punctuated by taking bites out of his canvas.
On a recent trip to Costco, we agreed to let Miles pick out a snack of his choice -- something he could have on-hand that was quick and easy for car travel, such as our morning commute, or as an afterschool treat.

Although we had no choice but to put him to bed, I still tried to keep Miles's … Continue reading Year 4, Day 309: Baby’s First New Year’s Resolutions!
