Today, we ran out of the liquid children's vitamins that Trey has been taking since birth. So we tried half a Flintstone's vitamin. To our suprise, Trey chewed it up and wanted more.
This is really good news on two fronts. We had tried this earlier and he wanted nothing to do with it. Also, Flintstone's are cheaper than the liquid vitamins.
Well, Alan just confirmed it. The 8mm tape we used for Christmas is blank. This is a real bummer since this means we don't have the video of Trey opening his presents at home.
Cascading Style Sheets: Because of this weblog I'm beginning to look at CSS. It looks like a promising way of handling my web pages. I'm intrigued by the thought of being able to change the look of my web site with the change of a single file.
It is also a promising way of keeping a consistent look for the entire web site. We will see. Maybe I can get the web site done.
Today was a day of mixed blessings. Personally it was great. Work wise it was extremely difficult.
Work: We had an Exchange server with a corrupt database, a SQL server with a corrupt database, two test wireless units that are unuseable because their contract is up (48 hours to activate and test have to be completed today), another SQL server has a failing RAID card.
Personally: I surprised Cherie with flowers, Trey was in a good mood, we had Steak for dinner with brownie's and ice cream for dessert and Grandma and Grandpa Harris sent Valentine's day cards.
All in all it was a good day.
Yes, I've heard and read about it, but until you actually do it, it doesn't sink in. Children need to have a schedule. Last weekend we started Trey on a scheduled nap time. He now takes his nap every day at 2:00pm. He complains a little, but it is more a perfunctorily complaint than an actual complaint.
Next we will be working on scheduled bed time, lunch and dinner. This will make his life and ours much more enjoyable.
With him taking scheduled naps I am more likely to see him awake when I get home. Before this he would end up falling asleep when Cherie and he got in the car to pick me up from the train station.
A friend sent me an interesting letter. Yes, it was one of those joke letters that end up annoying most people, but I really liked the following lines:
If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think we will accept them as Southerners. After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call 'em biscuits.
