.NET VB 2008 Add multiple textboxs to a datagrid cell

I am using Datagrid for the first time and am creating a custom calendar control. I'd like to add multiple textboxs to datagrid cells.  

I am currently placing all my appointment text into the single textbox control.

My end goal is for each appointment to place a group of six editable textboxes using two horizontals lines in a cell.

here is the code

    Public Sub ReloadCalendar(ByVal ldate As Date, ByVal Selected As Integer)
        Try
            LoadQBEventsForMonth(ldate)   ' loads TheAggArray with appointments for the month from quickbooks 
            ClearDGV() ' clears the datagridview
            dgvCalendar.CellBorderStyle = DataGridViewCellBorderStyle.Raised
            MonthName.Text = monthstr(ldate.Month)
            Dim fdate As DayOfWeek = GetFirstOfMonthDay(ldate)
            Dim idate As Integer = 1
            Dim row As Integer = 0
            Dim column As Integer = fdate
            Do
                'Dim newTextBox As New TextBox
                'newTextBox.Text = idate
                'newTextBox.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue
                If Not TheAggArray(idate) = "" Then     ' we have appointments(s) for this date
                    dgvCalendar.ShowCellToolTips = True
                    dgvCalendar(column, row).ToolTipText = TheAggArray(idate) ' add appointment text to tooltip
                    dgvCalendar(column, row).Value = idate & " !!!"   ' place the day of month on the correct cell with an alert
                Else
                    dgvCalendar(column, row).Value = idate   ' place the day of month on the correct cell
                End If
                column += 1
                If fdate = DayOfWeek.Saturday Then
                    row += 1
                    column = 0
                End If
                fdate = tdate(fdate)
                idate += 1
                If idate = Date.DaysInMonth(ldate.Year, ldate.Month) + 1 Then
                    Exit Do
                End If
            Loop
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
