Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

Hubby got called to work in the morning and we had to get Dino out early for daycare. He didn’t mind but really wanted to go…there was a dusting of snow on the ground and he wanted to play. Tony was not moving fast enough for him.

“Daddy you are ruining this day.” This is something he says quite a bit…so dramatic.

THEN…I made him wait to go out to the car. He turned to look at me with anger on his face and his shoulders lifting up and down to emphasize his words. “Mommy, I’m a big boy and can do it myself.”

My dad and hubby were talking while Dino was trying to watch a show. He started yelling, “I can’t hear.” Then he pointed to each of them. “You stop talking and you stop talking and let me watch my show.”

My sister and BIL were getting rid of one of their couches and chest. We brought it into our house. Dino had an epic and horrific meltdown. He was screaming, sobbing, crying so hard he could barely breathe. This lasted for about ten minutes when we switched couches and twenty minutes when we switched and ottoman for the chest. Dino gets so attached to things and is quite emotional.

“I don’t like changes.”

“You are changing everything and I don’t like it.”

“You keep taking all my things.”

“I’m going to call somebody, but I don’t know who.”

I had to take a pictures of him with the ottoman before we threw it out, it didn’t matter that it was broken, he wanted to keep it forever. Of course he now LOVES the toy chest. 

please note that a few weeks later, he has forgotten abou the ottoman…so much drama over something he can’t remember.

In reference to the toy chest, Dino came up to me while I was in the kitchen.

Dino: “I’m glad I don’t have a brother or sister because they would lock me in the chest.”

Mommy: “Yes, that’s right. An older brother or sister might sit on the chest, but it doesn’t lock. A younger brother or sister would want to climb in there with you and you would have to share the space.”

A while back he asked why we can’t have more kids so he can have a baby. I explained that our family is the three of us and we are happy. We talked about the good and bad things about having brothers and sisters. Dino said he’s happy he doesn’t have to share his toys, food, treats, and his Mommy and Daddy.

Dino LOVES LOVES LOVES going to karate and is so proud of his black uniform and purple belt. When Sensei decides to have sparring, well Dino jumps up and down with joy. Sensei said that Dino would be a natural at sparring, not only does he know the protective stances he can take a hit and loves the contact.

“Mommy, stop. Don’t take a picture of me watching Scooby Dooby Doo. This is my private time.”

Wonder when I get MY private time?

Watching Ghost busters and the lead characters kiss. “Eeeeew, they are kissing. They are not married, why are they kissing?”

Daddy calmly asks him why he said that.

Dino gives Daddy a weird look, “When I watched a penguin show, he kissed her on the hand. He should have done that instead..”

I jumped in, “Yes, when you first meet someone you shouldn’t kiss on the lips. They really like each other, are adults, and want to get married, so they can kiss on the lips.”

Dino loved putting our tree up and telling us where to put the ornaments. I don’t have the heart to change it, he worked so hard…I love our tree.

I got Dino a new organizer for his Legos, he loves the organizers. All you could hear was grunts, growls, scream, explosions, and threats of destruction as he built and destroyed.

Dino was NOT in the mood to have his picture taken, it’s rare, but it happens. “Oh come on, Mom. Fine you get an angry face, no smiles.”


What would a fly on the wall hear in your home?

  1. My older son took TaeKwanDo, I think it was great for him. So glad Dino’s enjoying Karate.
    Poor kid, very attached to the furniture, hope you’re not going to traumatize him with any more changes any time soon, LOL!

  2. “I’m going to call somebody, but I don’t know who.” A priceless quote that I adore.
    Sweet boy!
    There is something awesome about the sound effects that happen when busy boys and legos spend an afternoon together. <3

  3. I love the lego organizer!! I think its hilarious that he uses the phrase “private time”… too cute. What a great kid. A fly on the wall in my house? He’d hear “Can you please hang up your coat? your dress? you backpack?” 🙂

  4. The kissing talk cracks me up! T always says it’s gross when the Husband and I kiss. Though I like your take on it…only kiss on the lips if you want to get married!

  5. Sorry it took me so long to get over here—life has been crazy!!! I laughed out loud over the part where your son told you two to be quiet so he could hear his show! My son says this to me all the time.

Would love to read your thoughts
