Housecleaning Day


  • N/A


  • Calvin was in a good mood most of this morning. After breakfast, he sat quietly in my lap for several minutes while we read stories. Then he played around in the living until it was time for our mini-morning walk and his nap.
  • I had 1/2 hour extra after I finished cleaning the house today. So I actually had a leisurely lunch before heading to work at Erie (normally I eat while I work to save time).

Calvin Moment

  • Calvin is actually starting to “eat” with his spoon. That is, he understands the basic concept but has trouble actually getting food in his mouth. I was making a big deal and clapping every time he managed to get the spoon in his mouth which he really loved. It was obvious that he was repeating the actions because of the praise.


  • Threw out an old jar of bath salts.
