Well, I was planning to go to church but Calvin had other plans.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2009 3:28 PM
I think Calvin might be ready for a nap but I’m not sure. He only ate 3 1/2 oz of milk which seems a little small.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2009 3:53 PM
I’m afraid we’re not going to have supper when I planned. Calvin won’t stop crying.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2009 3:58 PM
Calvin’s tired but refusing to be anywhere except in my arms. I need to pump right now so this is a problem.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2009 4:07 PM
If I’m lucky, I may have him asleep in his crib. I’m going to eat a peach before hooking up for pumping just in case.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2009 4:36 PM
He really did go to sleep but it involved him falling asleep with me holding him and then transferring him to the crib. A bad habit?

A new word for the day: keek. Amazing what you learn reading nursery rhymes.

Calvinsdad reports that Calvin wasn’t very enthusiastic about his breakfast.

I’m making Blueberry Buckle for us. Maybe Calvin will get a small piece.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 9:04 AM
I’m pretty sure I can see another tooth coming in.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 9:05 AM
Calvin is having fun with a paper towel roll.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 9:48 AM
Bother, I messed up the Blueberry Buckle.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 11:43 AM
Calvin is valiantly trying to eat peas with a spoon but they keep slipping off.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 12:18 PM
Calvin is resisting taking a nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2010 2:37 PM
Calvin has been sleeping for almost 2 hrs.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2011 10:12 AM
Calvin now owns a (spare) car seat that weighs less than he does.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2011 11:08 AM
The directions for my new Bluetooth headset neglected to provide instructions for getting it out of the package.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2011 12:48 PM
Looks like WA is going to welcome me home with lots of rain. Calvin will be ecstatic he gets to wear rain coat/boots.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2011 12:48 PM
This morning he insisted on putting on his rain boots and yellow rain coat even though it’s beautiful weather outside.

Calvin visited the next room up in daycare today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2011 3:04 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun making a flower :) ”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2012 8:57 PM
From daycare, “Calvin enjoyed building with blocks!”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2013 8:20 AM
Calvin and I started his day with a fight over whether or not he would eat breakfast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2013 8:21 AM
I gave him 3 breakfast options, he didn’t pick any so I picked granola. He was incensed at first refused to eat any.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2013 8:21 AM
Now he’s asking for a 2nd helping of granola.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2013 4:31 PM
Calvin _really_ wanted me to paint his toenails. Unfortunately, I could not convince him to stay still.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2016 12:56 PM
There were so many things I thought I was going to get done today . . . I’m not even half-way through my list.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2016 3:36 PM
I’m staring at my fridge/freezer and the stuff left can’t easily be made into meals with ingredients I already have.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2016 3:36 PM
It’s probably time to start throwing away . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2016 4:36 PM
“My” piano is gone. It’s going to be a surprise for the buyers’ son who is having a piano recital today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2016 9:40 PM
Well . . . I got three of the seven things on my calendar done today. I guess it’s a start. Hopefully I’ll be super efficient tomorrow.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2019 7:16 PM
Julian went to bed early so Calvin and I are now ensconced in the hammock outside reading our books.

View of Calvin reading in the hammock. His book, The Terrible Two, is held up so it's hiding his face.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2019 8:53 PM
Today was a good day. I finished everything that had to be done, got an hour of reading in a hammock, watched TV with Calvin, and still can go to bed early to catch up on my sleep.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2020 11:31 AM
Today, we first saw a hummingbird chase off another bird 2-3x its size and then we saw two raccoons climbing in our persimmon tree. (One raccoon now seems to be hanging out in the pine in our neighbor’s yard which we have a great view of from our rooftop deck.)

Do all children go through a string/web phase?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom May 23, 2021 4:06 PM
Well . . I have the rough outline of the living room down. I’m not going to have time to get down the details today. I knew it was an odd shape but didn’t realize how odd till just now.
Screenshot of a computer generated floorplan outline of the living room. The living room has 7 sides a looks a bit like a lopsided kite. On one wall is a fireplace and another side is labeled with the word stairs.
