Love my kids. Always. Like my kids. Most of the time.

I love his pictures. I asked him how he came up with drawing the deer (I thought it turned out great) and he told me that he remembered the How-To-Draw book and remembered the deer. We had that book over 4 months ago. We never drew a deer then, nor did we talk much about it. The kid has 2 really stand-out brilliancies (yes, a made-up word): his memory and his inquisitivness. He tells everybody he meets that his favorite food is sardines. And he's serious. Just today we got a wishbone in the mail from my folks (they had to send me my running shoes I left). Miles won his wish. He told me that his wish was 1. that he could show daddy the new library book, If I built a Car, and 2. that he could eat sardines with his Daddy. Both will come true. His percentiles are pretty small too - I don't exactly remember, but something like 6% for height and 15% for weight. Miles, though, doesn't believe any of this and thinks he is the tallest and strongest of everything and everyone.
