I’m up to work on setting up one of our library servers for an upgrade later today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2009 10:04 AM
Everything at the library seems to be up and running now. I’m going to try to convince myself to go back to sleep now.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2009 12:42 PM
I’m up from my nap but I’m not sure it did as much good as I was hoping.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2009 2:22 PM
I just went through my packed away clothing and transitioned my closet from “maternity” to merely “large.” I have clothing to wear again!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2009 6:42 PM
We just finished a “picnic” outside under our front tree. Calvin is fascinated by the tree and/or clouds which made for a peaceful meal.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2010 7:11 AM
My generic brand butter is disturbingly yellow.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2010 10:09 AM
We’re hoping to escape the heat by going to Rocky Mountain National Park today.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2015 4:46 PM
Calvin ate supper last night. Thus, I’m allowed to make something he’ll hate tonight.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 17, 2017 7:11 AM
Perils of coming back from vacation: I forgot my badge but found a baby bottle in my bag.

Twitter: July 16


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 7:48 AM
Calvin is up and has been fed.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 10:20 AM
I’ve decided to clean half the house every week. This week is the upper level which I just finished :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 10:30 AM
Calvinsdad and I have a date for Sunday :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 4:49 PM
Just finished making cookies. I can’t remember the last time I did more than the bare minimum to get food on the table.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 5:57 PM
My child is a different baby at daycare. They claim that when they put him in his crib, he naps without fussing.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 6:54 PM
Calvin and I sat outside under our tree for about 1/2 hr after I picked him up from daycare.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2009 6:54 PM
He really enjoyed looking at the tree till he got tired. Now he’s napping.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2010 8:26 AM
Calvin woke up around 4:30 and cried intermittently until I got him. Then, he played until sleeping again at 6-7:30.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2010 8:27 AM
In other news, Calvin’s first tricycle has arrived. I hear (unofficially via reviews) that it requires power tools to put together.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2010 12:53 PM
I started working late this morning but still made it through all me essential must-do items for today :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2010 5:48 PM
From daycare: “Calvin really enjoyed rearranging chairs today!”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2011 3:49 AM
At the moment, our flight is still showing as “on time.” In other news, it’s too early.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2011 4:26 AM
I was hoping Calvin would fall back asleep on the drive to the airport but trucks are too interesting to watch.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2012 4:38 PM
Yesterday we were busy so I was knocked out of my normal routine. We have food but no menu for the week.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2013 4:26 PM
We took a break and ate Lego Orange Juice ice cubes out next to the sandbox.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2014 1:48 PM
Boulder is looking very Washington state-like. 70s, clouds, and I found mushrooms growing in our yard.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2014 5:58 PM
Huh, Boulder hospital’s vegetarian menu seems to rotate based on day of week. Pretty good looking options too.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2017 6:38 PM
Whew, we made it home!


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2018 7:32 AM
Wow, iOS is FINALLY getting time limits. (Better late than never but why didn’t this happen years ago!!?? Do you have any idea how much time I’ve wasted with Kindle because it had the most robust time limits?)


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2019 7:07 PM
Oh look, cruise software has issues with hyphenation too. *sigh*


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2020 10:18 AM
I don’t know why, but people have a really hard time finding the Wallingford house.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2020 11:50 AM
I’m in the midst of balancing both Calvin’s Q1 and Q2 529 statements. I think doing them together was a good choice. I knew the end of Q1 was bad but didn’t actually look at the numbers till now.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 16, 2020 11:50 AM
(Though I still feel the stock market is living in an alternate reality.)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2009 8:43 AM
Calvin woke up at 7:30. We just finished story/pumping time. Now for me to eat breakfast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2009 8:57 AM
Calvin is now engaged in tummy time.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2009 9:00 AM
In spite of having tummy time every day, Calvin hasn’t shown much recent interest in trying to roll over again.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2009 9:57 AM
Just came back from a walk. Calvin dropped off to sleep just in the last 10 min or so.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2009 7:03 PM
Calvinsdad is getting ready to bathe Calvin. Hopefully this won’t be as exciting as Nana’s experience.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 2:18 PM
Since Calvin was born I have become very familiar with the concept of “good enough.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 2:19 PM
The kitchen needs to be swept and mopped, likewise the entryway, the sofa needs to be cleaned of cat hair but the floors have been vacuumed!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 3:00 PM
From daycare: “Calvin did a great job connecting legos today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 3:42 PM
Calvin ate his brussel sprouts well yesterday but boycotted the lima beans today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 5:42 PM
Just got back from the park. It’s too hot but we needed to venture from the house once this week.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 6:22 PM
I’m attempting to teach Calvin not to throw his food over the side of the high chair.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2010 6:39 PM
Well . . . there’s a complete meal on the floor . . .


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2011 8:25 AM
Calvin is entirely too excited by the stairs these days. It makes me nervous.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2011 3:05 PM
Calvin pointing to the spare car seat in the back of Motoko: “plane seat!” Pointing to the installed seat: “car seat!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2011 3:15 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun painting.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2011 3:15 PM
In other news, he didn’t take a nap. Hopefully this makes it easier to put him to bed early.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2011 5:05 PM
Since I ended up with an extra day at home, I prepped my first batch of herbs for freezing.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2013 5:24 PM
Wow, DIA’s cell phone parking is crammed full. I think I might have gotten the only open space at the moment.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2017 12:21 PM
I want to move Calvin away from the Kindle but can’t find another device that has equivalent parental controls :(

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2017 12:22 PM
It seems like most add-on parental control apps have privacy issues I’m having trouble accepting.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2018 10:21 AM
Julian picked out pants and a shirt but scrapped the outfit when he couldn’t find appropriately coordinating underwear.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2018 3:45 PM
The kids got library cards! Unfortunately, the experience tired Calvin out enough he now doesn’t want to go swimming even though I promised we could drive there.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2018 6:48 PM
Well, I suppose when life gives you three extra bottles of lemon juice, make lemonade. Though, I think that would be enough lemon juice for a large party worth of lemonade. So far, we’ve used 3/4 cup.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2020 11:29 AM
The Queen Anne temp rental comes with a grand piano and a view and I don’t ever want to leave here.

It’s very atmospheric.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2020 12:53 PM
Tons of people out and about in Queen Anne but they are all wearing face masks.
A pair of what I believe to be Chinese-inspired stone guardian lions angled with their backs mostly against each other. The picture is directly facing one lion which has a white  KN95 mask on. The other lion is mostly facing away but it appears to have a blue mask on.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 15, 2021 6:17 PM
Julian is all ready to fly.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 7:42 AM
Calvin’s still sleeping. I’m debating whether or not I should wake him up.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 9:12 AM
Calvin got up around 7:50. I wonder if he’s going to get into some sort of regular waking schedule.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 9:12 AM
We put two pads in his cloth diaper for the night and he still soaked through it.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 11:10 AM
Our air conditioner is having trouble. The cooling guy has to turn on the heat in order to work on it. This is not pleasant in summer.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 11:36 AM
It’s now 83 degrees in the main level of our house.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 11:36 AM
This is where the lack of air circulation upstairs is good. It’s only 75 in our bedroom.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 12:09 PM
The air conditioner is back on!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 1:11 PM
The air conditioner is actually cooling our house now!!!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 5:54 PM
Time for tummy time. Calvin seems to be handling it fairly well.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 5:55 PM
Since @calvinsdad isn’t home tonight, I’m being lazy and eating a frozen pizza (heated up) for supper.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 7:01 PM
Just came back from taking a walk with Calvin.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2009 8:08 PM
I think Calvin’s asleep for the night.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2010 1:22 PM
Home from the library and now I must convince myself to clean.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2010 2:41 PM
From daycare: “Calvin really enjoyed painting with ice today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2010 3:37 PM
It just occurred to me that I’m cooking with turmeric and wearing a white shirt . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2010 4:08 PM
Calvin just showed me how to open the childproof locks on the cabinets.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2010 5:35 PM
Calvin can say “book” (or an approximation of it anyway).


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2011 9:26 AM
Calvin no longer fits in my Becco carrier :(


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2013 5:42 PM
Went excavating under the deck. Among other things, found 2 satellite dishes and 21 round fence posts.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2015 11:43 AM
At first try, Julian appears to like the new hypoallergenic formula better!


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2016 11:46 AM
It turns out getting blood drawn for a toddler is a bad experience for everyone.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2016 11:46 AM
Now soothing with mommy, chocolate, and milk.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2016 5:26 PM
Personally I find today’s dal a bit on the bland side. However, Julian is inhaling it so maybe I can freeze it in little batches for later.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2016 5:51 PM
I think Julian might be able to eat his weight in food.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2016 6:36 PM
The bump near Julian’s eye was almost gone so he decided he needed another one (though higher and further away from the eye).


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2018 1:22 PM
Time to drag Calvin outdoors.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 14, 2018 4:40 PM
I’m not sure if Julian is getting too old to carry or I’m getting too old to carry him. I was still carrying Calvin way past this age so I’m guessing it’s the latter.

Twitter: July 13


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2009 7:36 AM
Calvin got up around 7ish today. Just finished feeding him now off to pump.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2009 9:43 AM
Calvin just got up from a nap and is _very_ cranky. Maybe he’s hungry early?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2009 6:21 PM
We’re trying Calvin in the vibrating bouncy seat tonight for supper.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2009 8:16 PM
Daddy is putting Calvin to bed while I pump.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2010 2:21 PM
Off to pickup Calvin and buy him new shoes.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2010 5:50 PM
Well, Calvin has new shoes but screamed every time I tried to put sandals on him.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2010 7:29 PM
From daycare: “Calvin enjoyed splashing in puddles today!”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2011 2:05 PM
I can already tell my suitcase is going to be too heavy. I’m now contemplating wearing my hiking shoes shoes at the airport.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2011 2:25 PM
@calvinsdad I, for one, welcome the change to a more appropriate temperature. I’m sweating buckets here in Colorado.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2011 8:30 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun playing on our race track.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2012 8:57 PM
Last night we had an uninvited cat enter our house. Would it be weird to install an RFID cat door?


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2013 8:14 PM
Wow, Calvin slept through my (loud) practicing this morning. I hope the neighbors did also.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2013 3:53 PM
I told Calvin we were having burritos for supper. He replied, “Burritos taste passé to me.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2013 3:56 PM
When I inquired, Calvin told me he had learned the word passé out of a book (my guess is from _Purplicious_).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2013 6:32 PM
@calvinsdad Welcome back.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2015 2:47 PM
I tell Calvin, “You’re a good boy.” He responds, “Smart too.” And obviously inherited his family’s humility.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2016 6:00 PM
Every time I go down south I am thankful @calvinsdad insisted on San Francisco proper. Way too hot down there. SF is perfect.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2016 6:04 PM
Well, that was a whole day of running around doing random errands. I think I got everything actually _essential_ done.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2018 6:51 PM
I think Julian sneakily figured out a way to get double stories: 1) pretend he’s ready to go to bed extra early 2) AFTER the stories are done, decide he’s not ready to go to bed yet and needs to take a bath.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 13, 2021 12:41 PM
Today I learned Julian can swing across the monkey bars. (Taking a lunch break at a nearby park.)

Julian swinging halfway across the monkey bars at a playground.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 7:48 AM
Calvin got up at 6:30. I think we just missed Nana as she left to go back to Washington.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 11:42 AM
Calvin is taking his 2nd nap of the day.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 12:07 PM
I think this is the first time Calvin has successfully napped in his bassinet for at least a month.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 12:59 PM
Calvin (unintentionally) wiped his mouth with a burp cloth after spitting up.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 2:54 PM
Calvin’s sleeping while we (very quietly) eat dinner.

[I double checked the timestamp and it really claims to be 2:54. Why we were eating dinner that early I couldn’t say.]

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 5:07 PM
I think Calvin’s starting to consciously put things in his mouth.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 7:01 PM
Calvin has been on-and-off napping since 5 (with a break for supper).

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 7:01 PM
Now I’m afraid he might be down for the “night.” If so, I’m worried about when he might wake up tomorrow.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2009 7:13 PM
Calvin woke up after all. Now we’re engaged in some exciting tummy time (with only minor complaining from Calvin).


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2010 7:33 PM
Calvin decided to wake up at 5:30 today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2010 7:34 PM
He’s pretty proficient at eating purees with a spoon on his own now. Unfortunately, it usually ends with the bowl being thrown to the floor.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2010 4:27 PM
From daycare: “Calvin enjoyed experimenting with dried oatmeal today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2010 4:54 PM
Calvin _really_ likes pesto.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2011 5:41 PM
Calvin just stormed up the stairs, shut the baby gate, then slammed his door because I won’t let him watch more TV.

[Note: He’s actually significantly easier as a real teen, at least so far.]

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2011 5:41 PM
People keep saying that before you know it Calvin will be a teenager but I had no idea it’d happen this fast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2011 6:29 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun playing in our ‘boat.'”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2012 9:15 AM
Just picked up my new glasses. Not sure about the frame style but the prescription seems better.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2012 7:31 PM
Well, family duplo night isn’t very relaxing when mommy, daddy, and Calvin all have different visions.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2013 7:11 PM
I’m ready for cooler (not cold) weather.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2013 4:25 PM
Weird. Willow has been throwing up more than 5 these days.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2015 8:39 AM
We have the Sunday edition of the New York Times delivered the old fashioned way: on our driveway. So weird :)
A copy of the New York Times folded to show the top half of the front page. The text is blurry and hard to read but there's a large picture showing two rows of people facing each other, with heads bowed, possibly with soda bottles in between them.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2015 9:00 AM
Young Calvin sits at the dining room table with the New York Times opened in front of him. He might be reading the sports section, it's hard to tell.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2015
Grandma is cuddling with Julian and Calvin at the same time.
A blurry picture of Kiesa's mom sitting on the sage green sofa with her arm around Calvin who is holding baby Julian.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2016 6:19 PM
I think we have too much curry for the number of people who can tolerate how hot it is.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2018 9:40 PM
The boys have safely arrived and are now allegedly going to sleep in their new bedroom.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2019 7:56 AM
I like airports fine but I can’t imagine going to them just to hang out:


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2020 2:50 PM
The books are not getting packed fast enough.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2021 10:51 AM
From the LA Times: “Unvaccinated are driving uptick in virus cases” and “‘The virus will find you,’ epidemiologist warns those who are still unvaccinated”.

It’s really stressful right now being the parent of a kid who is too young to get vaccinated.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2021 10:51 AM
I realize the odds that Julian will die, or even need to be hospitalized, if he gets COVID-19 are really low. However, Julian got pretty sick in 2019. Not bad enough to need to see a doctor but it was borderline since even with ibuprofen, his temp stayed high.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2021 10:51 AM
Just a run-of-the-mill fever fever was pretty stressful.
@calvinsdad and I alternated taking off work and I spent most of the time holding him while he lay like a ghastly shadow of his normal self.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 12, 2021 10:51 AM
So, even if Julian likely wouldn’t die, I don’t want him to get sick. Particularly, when it could have been prevented by other people behaving responsibly.

Twitter: July 11


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 8:15 AM
Calvin slept fitfully from 5-7 and then got up around 7.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 8:15 AM
We’re now getting ready to eat breakfast and then go to Sabbath School.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 1:27 PM
Calvin’s having trouble taking naps today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 4:47 PM
Calvin has been taking a very strange multi-stage nap this afternoon.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 6:12 PM
You’d think napping in someones arms when it’s 82 in the house wouldn’t be pleasant but it’s the only way he will nap today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2009 7:17 PM
Calvin does not seem inclined to repeat his rolling experience from several days ago.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2010 12:16 PM
Calvin is violently protesting nap time.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2010 6:38 PM
Just got back from the park. Now for Calvin’s supper part II.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2010 8:08 PM
Calvin’s asleep. I’m sitting down to watch an episode of _Rosemary & Thyme_ with a bowl of dark chocolate mint ice cream. Yum :)


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2011 4:23 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun working on puzzles.”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2012 4:28 PM
Calvin’s had a good day: 1) concrete pumper collapsing, 2) train crossing 3) Firetruck with sirens/lights. All within 1/2 hr.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2013 6:00 PM
Calvin is going through a phase where he wants to watch videos with the sound off.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2015 8:22 AM
Important question: Do I have enough peanut butter for Grandma’s visit?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2015 8:23 AM
In other news, I think I slept last night!

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2015 12:35 PM
I would have that Calvin would be past the point where I would have to tell him not to eat food on the floor.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2015 2:02 PM
There is something wrong with a dishwasher that I can start before church and it’s still running when I get back. *sigh*

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2015 2:29 PM
I’m going to have to get one of those new-fangled bumpers I was scoffing at earlier. Julian keeps pushing his pacifier out of the crib.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2016 5:36 PM
Julian is reaching underneath my toes and pulling up. I’m not sure what he expects to happen but he’s upset that it’s not happening.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2016 6:40 PM
Ate a Korean melon at supper. I think it tastes like a crisp cantaloupe.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 11, 2016 6:41 PM
Though apparently I wasn’t suppose to peel and seed it first?

Twitter: July 10


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 8:03 AM
Calvin got up at 6:45, has eaten and now grudgingly engaging in tummy time.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 8:31 AM
Bath time :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 8:50 AM
Nana is now trying to convince Calvin to take a nap. I, on the other hand, need no convincing :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 10:13 AM
My nap wasn’t very successful but Calvin’s still sleeping. I’m going to have to get him up in about 10 min to feed him before daycare.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 3:34 PM
Just finished work. Now I’m going to get the oil changed in Motoko. Not sure when we last did this . . .

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 4:47 PM
@aydensmamma How exciting :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 6:45 PM
Calvin has this bad habit of falling asleep about an hour before his bedtime :S

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2009 8:21 PM
Time for bed.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2010 6:32 PM
I went to bed an hour late so obviously Calvin had to wake up an hour early.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2012 9:52 AM
Today Calvin and I were discussing the different types of “work” people do. Calvin said, “my work is play.”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2012 9:53 AM
I must have been quoting Maria Montessori a bit more than I realized.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 10, 2015 5:39 PM
I think I burned the pudding :(

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 8:27 AM
Calvin woke up just a little before 7:30 today. He slept really well last night :)

We’re getting ready for some tummy time while I eat breakfast.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 9:00 AM
Calvin is cranky, it’s time for his morning nap.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 10:01 AM
Well, once I got him down for a nap, he only slept about 20 min.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 4:21 PM
Just got back from getting my hair cut. I feel very relaxed :)

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 7:48 PM
Nana bought Calvin a bouncy seat today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2009 7:48 PM
Even though we don’t have batteries for it yet, it occupied Calvin throughout our supper.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 7:45 AM
Calvin slept most of the night in his crib but ended it in our bed.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 7:46 AM
Just before 5, he started screaming for a couple of minutes then slept for 15 and repeated the cycle.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 2:47 PM
From daycare: “Calvin had fun playing Peek-a-boo with Ms Amy today!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 4:14 PM
Like the cats, Calvin is fascinated by the printer when printing.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 6:22 PM
Calvin enjoyed sitting in a tree today but he thought mommy was being a bit overprotective hanging on to him.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2010 6:23 PM
Calvin is so obsessed with light you’d have thought he grew up in WA and never saw the sun.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2011 7:38 AM
Now that I’ve discovered Indian cooking, my (4-tiered) spice/herb cupboard is woefully inadequate for all my new spice blends.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2011 8:49 AM
Calvin tried to do my pilates video with me. Next time I need to video tape it. It was hilarious.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2012 8:54 PM
I really need a 2nd shredder for the office.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2015 5:32 PM
Warning: the house is going to get messier before it gets cleaner.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2016 3:48 PM
I’m pretty sure Julian is hangry but he’s refusing to eat.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2016 3:54 PM
Today as we were driving up 280 I told Calvin “look! the fog is back”. Calvin responded indignantly, “he has a name mom!”


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2017 8:43 AM
Not an auspicious start. We’re only in Vallejo and Julian has already thrown up.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 9, 2017 1:17 PM
I should never leave San Francisco. It’s too hot in the rest of the world.

Twitter: July 8


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2009 9:55 AM
Calvin woke up at 7 today.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2009 9:55 aM
I didn’t pump last night but I kept waking up anyway. Maybe I’ll sleep more tonight.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2009 6:22 PM
After a big fight, Calvin is down for a little nap before bed time.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2009 9:09 PM
Getting ready for the 2nd night of sleeping without pumping.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 6:47 AM
Around 10:30 last night Calvin began screaming. Per normal routine, I let him scream for 10 min but he didn’t fall back asleep.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 6:48 AM
He was fine as long as I was in the room with him. Finally, we decided to try co-sleeping again.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 6:49 AM
We pushed our bed up against the wall and had Calvin between me and the wall. Once he settled down enough to sleep, it worked fairly well.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 7:17 AM
There should be some sort of rule against fire alarm batteries dying in the middle of the night.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 2:39 PM
From daycare: “Calvin enjoyed exploring with oatmeal!”

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 2:39 PM
Exactly how do you explore with oatmeal?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 3:00 PM
Calvin is now consistently saying something like “dye dye” as we leave daycare.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2010 5:30 PM
Today we learned that the BOB sun shield does not work in a pinch for the rain shield. Fortunately, Calvin didn’t seem to mind.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2011 8:13 AM
It’s never a good thing to think your son is in the living room when he is, in fact, outside.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2013 1:51 PM
Gahh! I hate balancing cash.


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2014 6:03 PM
Our most recent camping adventure:


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2015 7:45 AM
Oh. I just noticed the name on my new credit card is wrong: no hyphen :(

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2015 10:43 PM
The treadmill is out of the basement!


Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2018 7:28 AM
Today I’m going to make pancakes, even though it’s just me, to celebrate having a kitchen again.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2018 7:33 AM
Though, I seem to be missing a liquid measuring cup.

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2018 8:00 AM
Umm . . . I left the store without buying garlic or onions. How did that happen?

Kiesa @spreadsheetmom Jul 8, 2018 1:44 PM
This is the shirt for Julian (and maybe all of the Logan family). Sadly, it doesn’t come in his size.
An orange t-shirt that shows the outline of a roaring lion and says hangry in all caps underneath. There's a tag that shows it's from the Woodland Park Zoo.
