I hear the secrets that he keeps when Calvin is talking in his sleep

Yeah, so, my mighty, mighty good man David has been traveling this week for work.

The Boy and I really miss him when he gone. He travels once a month for almost a week at a time, so Calvin and I have a routine pretty locked down at this point.

I pick him up at preschool, and I remind him that’s it’s just me, him and Homer the dog tonight, because daddy is working. We go home. We make dinner. We watch some TV. Sometimes I bake cookies, but most of the time we pop popcorn. He takes a bath. I make him watch baseball. He goes to bed. I watch depressing documentaries on Netflix. However, this week I started HBO’s new downer miniseries ‘The Night Of.” It’s pretty good, you guys. You should watch it so we can talk about it.

One of the things I like to do for Calvin when David travels is I let Calvin sleep in our bed. It’s a special, little treat for him. He loves it. I’m not going to lie to you: I like it, too. When David is away, every little noise freaks me out and keeps me awake. Having Calvin and Homer in the same room with me makes me feel better.

So anyway, very, very early this morning I woke up to the sound of Calvin talking in his sleep.

“No. … No, thank you. … No, thank you.”

Awww. He’s so polite when he sleeps.


Mommy’s little feminist: This shirt is from Feminist Apparel, because I know you’re going to ask.

Another thing I like to do while David is away is I like to send him a sexy video like this and write, “Thinking of you.”

I’m so good at sexting. David is a lucky man.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. My husband lives in India, imagine how good we are at Sexting. 3 years and counting. Lol
