We made a pit stop in Rock Hill on our way to Myrtle Beach for the Thanksgiving holiday. The initial reason for this detour was to see our friend Alex, in town from Denver, but an additional reason got tacked on yesterday -- I had to fill in as host for a trivia show. This … Continue reading Year 2, Day 275
I headed down to Orlando with friends today for a brief weekend in Walt Disney World and only got to see Miles for a fleeting moment before he was hurried off to daycare this morning. Thankfully, by the graces of modern technology, I was still able to see him later on. Beyond just seeing Miles … Continue reading Year 2, Day 193
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.

Tonight, after a trip to Raleigh that kept us all up a little later than usual, Miles decided to serenade us with a rendition of "Are You Sleeping?" NO, MILES. NO WE ARE NOT SLEEPING.
One addendum to our Massachusetts trip -- we stayed at an Airbnb our first night in Cape Cod, and our gracious host was a percussion teacher. She asked if it would bother us if she had a lesson while we were there, to which I -- knowing how into it Miles was likely to be … Continue reading Year 2, Day 128
