Tasked with picking up a few things for an impromptu cookout last night, I ran across one additional product that I was immediately compelled to purchase. In addition to being -- and I think we can all agree on this -- completely excessive, you might also notice that these Oreos contain not just three different … Continue reading Year 4, Day 130
I've written previously about how difficult it can be convincing Miles to eat regular meals, and an unfortunate consequence of this is that he frequently leaves us with no choice but to limit his take of precious, precious snack foods. While we've tried to be as explicit as possible in linking one to the other … Continue reading Year 4, Day 60
After he finished his bath tonight, Miles got to help me bake some Easter cookies. He insisted on doing as much of the prep as possible, which thanks to the fine folks at Pillsbury basically meant moving the chunks of dough from the package to a baking sheet. As he peered into the oven, watching … Continue reading Year 4, Day 25
Miles was really excited to place candy canes on the tree. He was even more excited to continuously pull all of them off and try to eat them.
After last night descended into madness, we decided that tonight would be cookie decorating night. Using my mother's time-honored sugar cookie recipe, I did the baking while Jaclyn and Miles took care of the frosting and sprinkles. Miles could not wait to get started...eating. And, with Jaclyn's guidance, Miles decorated the cookies with the...magic...and wonder...of... … Continue reading Year 3, Day 300
Miles got a haircut today, then went out for ice cream with his buddy Duke. He actually taught Duke how to eat his first ice cream cone! And of course Miles ate his "Superman ice cream, with sprinkles" without ending up wearing a substantial portion of it. Kidding. Of course he ended up wearing it.
As we were settling in at our weekend residence yesterday, Jaclyn very quickly and decisively let me know I'd be sharing a room with Miles. As such, this was the last thing I saw last night: And this was the first thing I saw this morning: The first thing I HEARD, incidentally, was, "DADDY WAKE … Continue reading Year 3, Day 193
I heard Jaclyn pull up after picking Miles up from daycare today and walked over to the door to greet them. As I stood there watching them, unbeknownst to either of them, I overheard the following exchange. Miles: "I want animal crackers." Jaclyn: "Who said you could have animal crackers?" Miles (contemplating his answer): "...daddy."Sneaky … Continue reading Year 3, Day 140
Mommy: "Well I'm going out for a little bit. Make sure Miles goes potty and takes a nap." (Miles and Daddy watch Mommy drive away.) Daddy: "Time for popcorn and DuckTales."
Not a day goes by anymore that Miles fails to request (to put it mildly) one of two things. When we pick him up from daycare, and before arriving home, Miles will insistently say, "I want ice cream. I want donuts." This week, at different times, he has received both. The road to our ice … Continue reading Year 3, Day 114
