New diaper problem. We don’t have enough storage for them all.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2009 8:47 AM
Off for a walk while the cleaning people are here.

I think I just changed a small swamp. It’s amazing Calvin wasn’t cranky with all that backed up in him.

It’s amazing how fast I can go through audio books when listening while breastfeeding and feeding.

[Note: I also got through the extended Lord of the Rings movies and all seasons of Stargate.]

What is it with medical websites that won’t allow decent passwords that include non-alphanumeric symbols?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2009 7:32 PM
Calvin’s getting huge. I need to start lifting weights again to be able to keep up.

Calvin wants me to give him more pancake even though he has plenty on his tray right now.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2010 7:44 AM
The pancake on the other side of the table always tastes better?

It’s amazing how much better the vacuum works when I’m not trying to vacuum with a completely full bag.

From daycare: “Calvin had fun playing in water today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2010 2:45 PM
Calvin is having a blast watching Willow playing with something.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2010 5:37 PM
Calvin and I just got back from playing in the rain.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2010 10:11 PM
Got sidetracked putting all of Calvin’s books in LibraryThing. Now I should go to bed.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2011 7:32 AM
I think I’m feeling better today . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2011 12:58 PM
Well, I managed to eat a reasonable lunch. I think that’s progress.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2011 5:47 PM
From daycare: “Calvin enjoyed rolling play dough into balls and caterpillar shapes.”

Given Calvin’s activity today, this comic seems appropriate:


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2012 10:40 AM
Calvin’s either talking to himself or telling a story, I can’t tell which, and is using different voices for each part of the conversation.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2012 2:06 PM
I’ve successfully paid bills for the first time at our new house. Now I’m trying to figure out where to store the aftermath.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2012 4:30 PM
Fiction books have been shelved!


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2013 2:28 PM
Pictures from our Washington trip:

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2013 2:31 PM
Calvin has just made the distressing discovery that after our trip I removed all the TV shows from the ipad.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2014 7:22 AM
I think our tomatoes are cursed.

Calvin’s Mother’s Day gift:


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2015 9:58 AM
We can subscribe to monthly peanut butter delivery!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2015 10:00 AM
We do go through a lot of peanut butter. Do we go through 6 jars a month?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2015 4:38 PM
Note to self: Next time you give Calvin the bread to hold on the way home, tell him not to eat it.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2016 7:01 AM
I do not appear to be doing a good job using up food.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2016 7:06 AM
Julian slept very well last night. Didn’t wake up till 5 then went back to sleep after 4 oz of milk.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2016 5:33 PM
Poop everywhere.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2016 5:34 PM


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2017 6:50 PM
Passports have arrived!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2017 6:53 PM
Julian is now refusing to give his passport back.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2018 3:54 PM
I’ve mentioned I hate phones, right?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2018 6:02 PM
Calvin thinks it’s completely unreasonable that I’m giving him a day to clean his room and will take away the electronics if it isn’t clean within that time period.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2018 6:03 PM
Also, he has really emphatic stomping down.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2020 10:50 AM
I’m always bemused when I see mothers of 4-year-olds wonder if it’s time to transition out of a crib. How did their children not start climbing out way before now? (Also, how can this possibly work with potty training?)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2020 11:11 AM
Julian has discovered the copier.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 11, 2020 12:12 PM
Another problem with working from home when the kids are here: it’s harder to eat unhealthy without them figuring it out.
