This morning, I made Rachel some breakfast in bed.  This almost always consists of toast, a fried egg and a small glass of orange juice.  This morning hash-browns were a last minute substitue for the toast.  Despite a sippy-cup full of his own OJ, Miles generally insists on drinking some…if not, all…of Mommy’s juice.  So it was no surprise this morning for Miles to grab the glass of juice off of Mommy’s bedside table and quickly dispatch it.

Mommy (glaring at Miles): “Did you drink all of Mommy’s juice?”

Miles: “Stinker.  Goofball.”

In cell-phone terms, you might call this “predictive text.”


Wait for it…

Miles’ Elmo DVD came to a screeching halt last night because it’s covered in scratches and smudges. Wonder why. When it suddenly paused on the TV, Miles announced that it was “buffering.”

In other news, he threw a tantrum last night. One of his worst. So naturally his mother and I just ignored him and went into another room. This lasted a good 3-4 minutes. When Miles finally followed us in, we continued to ignore him and just communicated with each other via gestures and telepathy I guess. After a minute or two passed, Miles looked at us and asked, “Talk? Please?”

I’ve got a spare PC keyboard (shocking, I know) laying around and Miles has discovered it.  Miles calls it his computer.  It’s fine with me, since it’s not hooked up to anything and discourages him from banging away my desktop or Rachel’s notebook.  However, he may be taking this  a bit too far.  Today…on three occasions, Rachel found Miles  typing on “his” computer.

Rachel: “What are you doing, Miles?”

Miles: “Checkin’ E-mail.”

If I find out that he has a Facebook account, I’m going to ground him for a year (after he shows me how to set one up).
