We’re up by Calvin’s cranky. Not sure if he wants more food or just to be held. I’m trying to eat breakfast.

Last night the cat slashed my pumping tubes. Fixed them up with a little tape but off to Boulder for new ones today.

However, the store doesn’t open till 10. First should I walk or nap? Naps are seductive but walking usually makes me feel better.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2009 8:18 AM
Well . . . I haven’t gotten my 8 hrs of sleep yet so I think napping will win. If it’s a disaster, I’ll know for next time.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2009 9:38 AM
The cats were yowling and Calvin was muttering so the nap was a lost cause. Just got back from walking. Now to shower before Calvin wakes.

I’m afraid Calvin is learning the snack method. Lots of little meals. He just had 3oz of milk (+1 while breastfeeding) and is refusing more.

I’m off to Boulder to pick up new tubes.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2009 1:20 PM
Well, that was less successful than I hoped. I had to buy a whole new kit.

Finished cleaning the carpets just in time to pick-up Calvin from daycare :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2010 2:36 PM
From daycare “Calvin enjoyed listening to Beth Epley tell stories today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2010 2:50 PM
Somehow Calvin managed to get an impressive amount of food in his shoe at daycare today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2010 3:20 PM
I love my kitchen scale :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2010 3:45 PM
Just as I finished making Calvin’s lunch for daycare I remembered he’s not going to daycare tomorrow.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2011 7:32 AM
I woke up to the pitter-patter of rain. Such a good way to wake up :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2011 7:37 AM
The cats inform me it’s my fault it’s raining outside and I should do something about it.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2011 3:30 PM
Well, I was planning to take Calvin to story time tonight except he skipped nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2011 3:31 PM
From daycare: “Calvin built a large tower with our lego blocks this morning and then we knocked it down for fun.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2011 7:41 PM
Decided to risk story time at the library and Calvin did very well even without an afternoon nap.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2012 10:15 PM
Calvin had a real conversation with Grandma this afternoon on the phone.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2014 8:11 PM
Shopping with Calvin is exhausting.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2015 1:21 PM
To access my cookbooks I have to carefully time my way between the baby swing and the piano. Makes me think of Galaxy Quest.

Julian did wake up last night but no bottle! So he went from 6pm to 6:45am without eating!!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2016 8:07 PM
I will never understand why it takes financial institutions SO LONG to do anything with electronic transactions.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2017 7:24 AM
It was a bad decision to listen to the news on my drive down to Mountain View.

[When asked if I arrived safely, give the news:]

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2017 6:40 PM
I did eventually realize this and switched to the local Bollywood station.

Tip: never, ever look under the couch.

Where we got lucky: Julian picked an orange shirt to wear to the Koret Children’s Quarter Playground.

Calvin on the carousel.
Calvin sitting on a carousel horse. He dressed in shorts and a blue short and is smiling at the camera.

Julian on a tiger.
Julian on the back of a carousel tiger.  He's dressed in a orange shirt with a train engineer cap on his head. He has a blissfully entranced expression on his face.

Julian is insisting on hugging every tree on Lee Ave. I think he’ll be fine in Seattle.

Ted “Theodore” Logan @calvinsdad May 12, 2018 3:49 PM
You’ll never be able to walk anywhere because he will hug every tree.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2018 4:01 PM
Well, that is a valid concern.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2019 7:46 PM
My computer is dead :(

Calvin’s real life lesson for today: how to submit a polite and informative technical ticket while keeping expectations low.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 13, 2020 9:14 AM
Today’s life lesson is how to deal with tech ticket responses that are unlikely to be helpful.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 12, 2020 4:49 PM
Julian is sulking because I am refusing to let him shuffle cards face up.

I made Almond Flour thumbprint cookies with strawberry jam in order to use up my almond flour and they were really, really good:

Tempted to buy more almond flour to make them again but I will try to resist :)

I have ordered an office chair. Both Calvin and I need one, we’re currently using dining room chairs, but I’ve been procrastinating. I’ve ordered one for both of us to try out, I’m a little worried we’re too short. I’m crossing my fingers.
