Calvin woke up around 7:30 last night and cried until around 9:00. Nothing seemed to help. Fortunately, the rest of the night was good.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2010 11:14 AM
He starting making noises around 6am and @calvinsdad got up to feed him around 7.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2010 11:14 AM
I slept in till 8 which was good because I hadn’t gotten much sleep the previous day.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2010 1:11 PM
Calvin is enthusiastically eating garlic bread.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2010 3:46 PM
Just got back from grocery shopping. @calvinsdad, grandparents, and Calvin are still in Boulder.

I finally picked up a collar for 5, attached the licenses for both cats and let them outside. We’ll have to see how this works out . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2010 10:04 PM
Well, 5 seems to do fine outside. Willow, not so much. As @calvinsdad mentioned, she got stuck under the porch.

Calvin slept well last night so I was thinking he could go to daycare but it turns out he has a mild fever so I guess not.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2011 11:03 AM
Maybe trying to make a double batch of rye bread is a bit too much for a modern-day “Heavy Duty” Kitchen Aid mixer . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2011 1:03 PM
We’re off on a stroller nap attempt.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2011 2:22 PM
Success with the nap but I spent the last 1/2 mile pushing a stroller with a flat tire.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2011 2:35 PM
When I give Calvin Tylenol, he latches on and sucks with an aptitude he never seemed to match with any milk delivery system.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2011 3:24 PM
I really love my Becco carrier. Since Calvin doesn’t feel good, he wants to cuddle and this way he can and I can grocery shop.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2012 11:37 AM
Well, I got 3 1/2 hrs of work done before Calvin started requiring extensive attention. Not bad.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2012 7:08 PM
Calvin _appears_ to be in bed for the night.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2014 5:06 PM
Calvin specifically requested subtitles on his video.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 4:39 PM
I feel like I’m in college again with minimal furniture and computers and cables strewn across the floor.

Ted “Theodore” Logan @calvinsdad Mar 28, 2016 5:16 PM
@spreadsheetmom Do you like my Craigslist living room?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 5:20 PM
@calvinsdad Yes, though it’s kind of weird.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 4:44 PM
After reading mom listservs I don’t think the whole “just listen, don’t solve” issue with relationships is a guy thing. It’s a people thing.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 4:53 PM
This kitchen has 2 built-in cutting boards and when they painted the cabinets they painted the cutting boards to the cabinets.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 5:03 PM
I want to setup a chime that tells me when mail has been delivered to the dark recesses of our garage.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2016 8:04 PM
I desperately need a step ladder to get into these cabinets.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2017 4:34 PM
Julian just said, “Willow, where are you?” (In badly accented toddler but still, pretty impressive for a boy who wasn’t talking.)


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2018 10:26 AM
At the zoo.
Toddler Julian standing in front of a brightly colored anteater sculpture. In the background is vivid tropical folage.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2018 10:54 PM
I think Julian likes the animal benches more than the actual animals.
Julian and Calvin sit on a bright colored bench with giant leaves providing the back and a large sculpted toucan bird sitting on the arm off to the right. Julian has a sun hat on and is slightly leaning forward with an pleased open mouth. Calvin is sitting next to him, looking off to the left, with a grin on his face.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 12:48 PM
Wow, today I think I slept in the latest since Julian has been born (at least with him in the house). Julian being able to make his own breakfast is a game changer.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 1:10 PM
Today I’m introducing Julian to peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. It’s been a very, very, long time since I’ve had these.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 1:14 PM
I believe @calvinsdad thought I made this up myself but I didn’t:

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 1:31 PM
Calvin contemplates the sandwich. @calvinsdad refuses to try it.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 2:38 PM
This was a normal sandwich my family ate growing up. However, I had completely forgotten about it until Julian started eating peanut butter and cheese sandwiches, which I found weird.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 2:39 PM
We also ate peanut butter and tomato sandwiches, but you have to have really good beefsteak tomatoes for that to work.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 2:59 PM
I’m really bemused by how many articles/posts I’m seeing about people realizing how hard it is to teach kids.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 2:59 PM
When I was first looking for a librarian job, I never applied to be a children’s librarian because I knew, without any doubt, that working with children was not my gift.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 2:59 PM
Though, since we’ve now apparently raised the general consciousness to realize how hard this is, let’s go ahead and raise the teachers’ salaries.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 10:12 PM
Laurel, an interior design blogger, noted that figuring out how long this current crisis is going to last feels a lot like wondering how long you’re going to be pregnant.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 10:12 PM
Specifically, “You just have to take it one day at a time knowing full well that one day you will not be sharing your body with an eight-pound hyperactive gerbil trying to kick his way out of your abdomen.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Mar 28, 2020 10:12 PM
Now that she mentions it, the uncertainty in my two pregnancies really feel similar to the current crisis. Especially the preterm labor drama with Calvin.

Julian flies a kite.
Julian flying a kite at the beach. The sky is a brilliant deep blue, not a cloud in sight. Julian is wearing his colorful striped hat and is flying a bright red kite shaped like a squid.

It’s not soup weather :(
