ex machina


the eric update - day 2119: zen and the art of bicycle maintenance.



in preparation for the snowdeal rummage and bake sale that odin had orgnaized to pay for the remaining portion of a fancy new bike he's been saving up for, we found we had to change the innertube on one of the tires on his very first bike so we could fetch a premium price.

odin is a "hands on" on kid so he jumped at the chance to learn how change a tire and tube.

i recall being fairly intimidated by the prospect of the task even after i had quite a few decades on odin, but he took to the task with his usual gusto and had the tire off in no time, er, flat.



sadly, we didn't even have much time for mw to reminisce about zen and the art of motorocycle maintenance and the metaphysics of quality before he was tooling around in his newly-fixed and soon-to-be-sold bike!

Hi,

Catching a cold from your sick child is part of the parenting, but there are a couple things you could do to lessen the probability of it happening. We've recently constructed a list of 25 ways you can keep your kids from making you sick: http://crnaschools.org/25-ways-to-keep-your-kids-from-making-you-sick/.

If you have some time, could you read our article? Being nurses as well as parents, we believe these tips will be very helpful when the next cold season comes. If you like it, can you blog about it?

PS, I couldn't find your email/contact form, so I'm leaving you this comment. Feel free to delete this after you read it.

Thank You,

Christina

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
