March 15

Daphne's doctor appointment last Thursday went well. She is in the 80th percentile for her height (34.75"), 40th percentile for her weight (26.8 pounds), and 20th percentile for her head circumference (18.75 cm). Basically, she's a petite green bean -- tall and lean.

MAJOR MILESTONE: Daphne made a poopy on her potty seat for the first time ever last night! She has gone pee pee in the potty seat for a few weeks now, but this was the first time our magical hen laid a golden egg upon her throne.

Jennie's paternal grandfather passed away on Friday just outside of Tampa, Florida. He was well into his 90s and led a great life.

Tomorrow is Daphne's first hockey game. I pray she can make it three hours without having too many tantrums. Oh brother! When it rains, it pours! Her second game will be this Saturday -- if she doesn't do well Tuesday night, maybe we will have to sell Saturday's tickets?

I completely replaced our kitchen faucet and master bathroom toilet inner workings this past weekend. I priced the O-ring and cartridge replacement kits for our outdated faucet on Friday night. You know what? It was only a few bucks more to replace the entire faucet, so I elected to go that route. Now, we have a more modern kitchen sink.

Our master bathroom toilet had developed a slow, annoying leak from the tank to the bowl for quite some time now. Throwing a new flapper in the tank never seemed to solve the problem. So, late last night, I carefully removed the tank from the bowl and replaced the 12 year old gasket. I highly recommend a Korky universal toilet repair kit for less than $20. It eliminates the need for a float ball with its high tech fill valve and adjustable water line. After a couple of hours, plumber Davey was able to test out the toilet and I'm proud to say that it works beautifully! (flush)

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.
