Calvin woke up early again.

For Calvin’s breakfast: Lentil soup followed by cherries & amaranth

Calvinsdad took care of Calvin for a bit so I could take a nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2010 11:16 AM
Off to the park with Calvin.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2010 12:15 PM
For lunch, Calvin is having strawberry & banana tofu.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2010 12:20 PM
Calvin has figured out how to suck his cheeks in and pucker his lips.

Calvinsdad’s purchase of a plane ticket within India caused a hold to be put on our Visa. I suppose it’s nice they pay attention :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2010 12:35 PM
Bananas are great, they override the flavor of a variety of foods :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2010 1:11 PM
I tried to feed Calvin his formula in a sippy cup and this didn’t work very well.

Went to Once Upon a Child and bought Calvin some more 12 month stuff. Also swung by Target and picked up a shirt for $0.75.

Calvin awoke 1 1/2 hrs early and now is extremely cranky and clingy.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2011 4:03 PM
We saw a double stroller in the park today. One side had a child and the other side had a dog.

From daycare: “Calvin painted with black and white at the easel this morning.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2012 4:54 PM
Given our current cat bills, I wonder what Clifford (as in, the Big Red dog) must cost to maintain.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2012 7:05 PM
Calvin enjoyed watching a crane help build houses from out the window in daycare.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 8:17 AM
Preschool is closed today so Calvin is going to be home while I try to work. Should be interesting.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 8:17 AM
I’ve started out our entertainment today by pulling boxes out of the basement in hopes he can amuse himself for a bit with them.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 12:23 PM
Oh dear, now Calvin is playing with the railing by climbing up on the outside of it.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 12:23 PM
Apparently his prior adventures have not impressed on him that this is a bad idea. Though, it does remind me of my brother . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 8:12 PM
This afternoon I laid down on Calvin’s bed, closed my eyes, and next thing I knew I was being trussed up with string like Gulliver.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2013 8:13 PM
When asked, Calvin hastened to assure me that this was to keep me safe and prevent me from “falling off the bed.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2014 7:34 AM
It’s 50 degrees outside and the snow is almost all gone. If I get ambitious, maybe we’ll have another park day. Maybe not too.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2014 7:36 AM
For the record, I approve of pills that decide to sugar coat the outside. Makes it much easier to swallow them without a disgusting taste.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2014 12:20 PM
That was a much colder park visit than I was led to expect. The temp dropped after breakfast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2014 1:21 PM
Yet another park:

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2014 3:25 PM
What to do with leftover breakfast crepes? Masala crepes for lunch :)


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2016 8:47 PM
I want a self-cleaning house.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2018 7:12 PM
Well, that was weird. Calvin was eating his supper fine, got to the sweet potatoes, ate them, and then threw them up. Only the sweet potatoes. Seems fine now.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2021 11:49 AM
We have arrived at the rocks!
Calvin sitting under the outcrop of a large rock. The rock is pitted with large holes.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2021 1:51 PM
Here’s Julian in his cave. (His had worse cell reception so it’s only getting posted now that we’re home.)
Julian in a cave-like rock formation. The rocks are very pitted. Julian is in a blue rain gear and is holding his hands out on either side, pussibly to catch drips.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2021 1:54 PM
It was raining steady the entire time we were there but the upside of that was there was only one other family on the rocks.

Also, I promised the kids hot chocolate once we got home.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2021 2:11 PM
Why do people with hard water install glass shower doors?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Feb 15, 2021 4:54 PM
One of my oven mitts has developed a hole :( (@calvinsdad and I think we might have gotten them as wedding presents so they have had a pretty decent run.)

I feel that this real estate ad pairs well with the Saturday Night Live Zillow obsession parody:

(For context, it’s this house:,-CA-95060_rb/16105119_zpid/)
