Well, Calvin first woke up at 10:00pm last night. That’s pretty much indicative of the entire night. Eventually, I got up at 5:30.

Calvin’s doing a pretty good job of opening his mouth for solid food this morning.

Calvin now has a nice green pea eyebrow.

Calvin slept in his crib again for his morning nap. It was 1 1/2 hr long which was great since I had a chance to nap too.

The broccoli died :( I wasn’t paying attention and turned the stove on instead of just prepping the broccoli to be cooked.

Calvin just crawled backwards for the first time (previously he only scootched). Still hasn’t been able to crawl forwards .

Off to try to clean the house early in prep for no time later in the week.

I really don’t understand why it’s taking me so long to warm up to texting. You’d think I’d like anything better than calling.

Here comes the snow . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 3:17 PM
There was very heavy rain/snow mixture at I-25 so we aborted our library visit.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 3:18 PM
I wasn’t worried about driving in these conditions but I was worried about everyone else driving :)

People keep saying that I’m going to regret when Calvin learn to talk intelligently but at least then I’ll _know_ why he’s mad at me.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 3:56 PM
Oh, he wants cheese. That I should have guessed.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 3:58 PM
Earlier he threw a fit because he wanted to go outside but it took him a good 5 min of throwing a fit before I figured it out.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 3:58 PM
We did go outside. I don’t like rewarding tantrums except if he had been capable of asking more politely, I wouldn’t have objected.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2010 4:02 PM
I’ve decided my initial reaction to laugh whenever Calvin throws a temper tantrum is a self-defense mechanism.

I think something is wrong with my oven. It took over 30 min to preheat to 400 degrees.

2.1 seems to have a gift to move vigorously when I’m the only one around.

I got a pedicure from @calvinsdad. So weird, I have heels under my calluses.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2016 6:28 AM
Not sure if I’m going to be able to manage breakfast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2016 7:36 AM
I’m usually a stress eater so it’s really weird not wanting to eat anything.

Calvin is stealing a book from an octopus.
Off to the left is a library bookshelf. To the right of the bookshelf is a mural painted to look like additional library books stacks and it looks like very large octopus arms are reaching through the open shelving. Calvin is pretending to try pulling a book away from the octopus.

Look the floor is clean. Just in time for a (late) lunch.

I have decided Calvin should know how to bake. So, I’m aiming for a dessert a week. Today we’re making cake. However, I have no idea what to do with it once we’ve made it. Our family cannot/should not consume that much cake.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2019 3:27 PM
We are making a Chocolate Mint cake with a marshmallow middle layer. The recipe calls for sprinkling crushed peppermint candies on top for a garnish.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2019 3:28 PM
Unfortunately, I did my cake ingredient shopping at PCC which is too pure (or posh?) to carry peppermint candies. So, I’m grating a chocolate mint bar and hoping for the best.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2019 3:29 PM
I need to make sure Calvin picks his next dessert prior to the regular weekly grocery shopping so I have time to get normal ingredients.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Nov 9, 2019 4:43 PM
We have a cake!

The other side is gooier.

The flavor and texture was excellent. However, now that it’s cut, the top layer is sliding down off the bottom layer.

Julian made a boat out of a milk container.
