Strict Standards: strftime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Because we were away this weekend and trying to sleep in high 90 degree weather in a tent, the kids are a bit sleep deprived and their behaviour is definitely a reflection of that fatigue. They are not tolerant of each other and easily become frustrated and unable to cope with things that usually they sail through.
At one point late this morning the older two were quite upset that we were postponing A-girl's party til later in the week. Apparently that was one of the worst things a Mom could do in their books.
As part of an expression of her own frustration, L. was irritating A-girl by taking her new doll and stroller and trying to play with it. I asked her to please leave A-girl alone with her new things. L promptly replied "Anything that comes into this house is the property of the family and needs to be shared by all" Did S. or I actually say that?!?!? Interesting how she becomes the rule enforcer only when she will benefit from the stated rule. I am eager to see next month when it is her birthday if anything that comes into the house is the family's and will be shared by all.
