Well, I’m up for the day. Currently pumping and then going to eat.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2009 9:44 AM
It’s very handy having my mom here to take care of Calvin for a couple of hours each morning so I can keep uninterrupted sleep.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 7:21 AM
Calvin slept till 7 today!!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 10:39 AM
Calvin went to his 1st dental visit today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 10:46
The Dr thinks his top molars might be getting ready to emerge (they aren’t erupting yet but he can feel something happening).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 10:46 AM
Also, Calvin has no cavities. Apparently, cavities at 1 yr are not as uncommon as one would hope.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 12:15 PM
I just realized I still have Gmail filters set to “mark as read” for some of my computer library listservs from maternity leave.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 2:41 PM
Calvin visited “First Steps,” the next room up, today and did very well. He took a 2 hr nap there!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 2:42 PM
From infant room: “Calvin was successful at untying shoes!” (I’m wondering whose shoes as he has velcro)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 2:43 PM
From First Steps room: “Calvin had a blast visiting Rocky Mountain Rangers [First Steps room] today! Can’t wait for him to visit again!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 3:49 PM
Calvin is entranced by the feather duster.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 4:18 PM
Bother! I left Calvin’s shoes at daycare. I guess we won’t go to the park today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 4:41 PM
We’re back from a quick walk around the neighborhood.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 4:41 PM
It’s almost hot outside.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 4:43 PM
Calvin is now trying to bang his way outside through the screen door.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2010 7:35 PM
Just put Calvin to bed. I’m ready to go to bed too except I must Do Useful Things first.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2011 1:06 PM
@aydensmamma Well, CDC agrees he doesn’t need anything other than flu till 4-6 ( Maybe they revised it?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2011 1:09 PM
@aydensmamma @calvinsdad usually puts Calvin to bed at night so it’s always dicey when I try and I’m relieved whenever it works :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2011 1:45 PM
How is it I’m always running out of ginger?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2011 6:02 PM
I wonder if I brought bhindi masala to the next potluck if anyone would be brave enough to eat it.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2011 7:00 PM
Calvin had fun making a Birthday sign with the bingo markers this morning.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2012 8:41 AM
I just got back online after being off more than 24 hrs. I’m slightly amazed by how little email I have.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2012 11:03 AM
Ugh, it looks like I have myself a 5am install time on Tuesday. At least I’ll be connecting from home.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2013 5:25 PM
That was exciting. The radon vent pipe tried to fly away. I have a temporary fix in place. Hopefully it holds the night.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2013 5:25 PM
In other news, yes, it’s really windy.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2013 5:27 PM
Also, the cat door was being blown open before I put the night cover on.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2014 4:41 PM
The weather outside is perfect. If only it’d stay like this all summer.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2014 7:39 PM
I need more bookshelves.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2015 6:46 AM
For Julian’s 5am feeding I was able to get away with just nursing him, no bottle! Not sure if he got enough or I just wore him out.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2015 6:47 AM
Also, no doubt this is shocking but babies nurse better when they wake up hungry rather than you do the waking.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2015 6:48 AM
(Until Julian regains his birth weight we’re suppose to wake him every 4-5 hrs to eat. This is not a completely successful endeavor.)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2015 4:55 PM
Baby’s first very large spit-up. All over himself and completely soaking the front of my shirt.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2016 9:17 AM
So far 7 showings are scheduled: 5 on Friday and 2 on Saturday. SOOO glad we got an airbnb place for this weekend.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2016 6:14 PM
I’m suppose to be weaning Julian off formula but his night was so bad last night I caved and let him drink 10 oz just now.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2016 6:15 PM
Current showing count: 9 showings today (2 still in 15 min) and 7 currently scheduled for tomorrow.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2016 7:19 PM
I’m the official dictionary for Montse and Calvin as they play scrabble.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2016 7:21 PM
Unfortunately, Calvin is still mainly spelling by sound.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2018 12:16 PM
The house is quiet and I don’t know where the kids are. #nervous

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2018 3:57 PM
I really need to just give up on the refrigerator water issue. I keep thinking if I stare at it long enough it’ll work but I have a feeling we’re into failed circuit board territory.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2018 4:14 PM
On the plus side, the refrigerator is now spotless.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2018 6:32 PM
Wow, I love having two Roombas. Makes it much easier to clean the house in one day instead of having to spread it out over multiple days.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2020 10:07 AM
Yesterday Julian was really cranky and spent the last hour of work sitting on my lap. I have decided that he doesn’t like being left out of the “office”.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2020 10:07 AM
Today, I’m trying a new rule. If he’s in the office he has to be doing “schoolwork”. So far, this has involved practicing his letters on the ipad, drawing (with proper grip), and listening to an audiobook.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2020 10:07 AM
It’s going ok but we’re only 1 1/2 hrs in and I haven’t had a meeting yet.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2020 10:38 AM
Whew, he got bored enough to wander off.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Apr 8, 2022 8:16 AM
Hm, our house is starting at 70 degrees this morning. This isn’t going to end well.

(I did leave the upper windows open last night but didn’t put the fan in the window which apparently was a mistake.)
