Working Daddy

So back at work now after the birth of our second child. What a great joy there is in life even at 4:30 in the morning while changing a diaper. I am also pleased to have the flexibility that Sun provides to work from home and in my case full time. I have been on the full time wfh track for about 6 years now.

So I know I have not been blogging a ton lately and that is not like me. I thought I would give you all and update as to what else I am up to. I am currently working on a small project to be found in a future release of CT that will support std as well as stlport4 in a c++ library. So that is going to be the big push for the next bit and then onto a few small defects that keep bugging me (some around CT install). After that is all up and out, well then who knows.

I came back from the quick paternity leave to find that a small reorg had taken place and the CT group was shuffled around a bit. I like the move and am excited to see what/if this move will do for the CT group.

For what it's worth.

Be Smart Parents

Another extremely sad story about a small child (baby in this case) being mauled by a dog. This one happened to be a rottweiler but almost any dog or animal can have this effect. I am not in any way advocating for no pets, I am just stating that parents need to be smart and diligent about pets and small children.

We have a now five year old yellow lab and she is the calmest little one that I know. When our daughter (now two) was smaller and even now we are very aware of if she and the dog are alone. There have been a couple of times that our daughter is not doing anything to provoke the dog and all of the sudden the dog either starts barking (very rare) or just gets over excited about a situation and someone (an adult) needs to step in and separate the dog form the situation. As much as people try to domesticate animals like dogs, they are still animals and need supervision over those types of interactions.

Bottom line to parents, be smart and keep children and pets supervised at all times.

For what it's worth.
