Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 15 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.

On a recent snow day, Anthony and Daddy were sitting on the couch.

“I’m hot. I want to take off my shirt.”

“Put on a t-shirt.”

“No Mommy said I can take off my shirt in the house if I want.”

“Okay, but it’s better to wear a t-shirt.”

“Daddy stop, all your talking is making me hotter.”

We order lots of things from Amazon, while I was out Saturday morning, my order came in the mail. It’s all under my name, so Tony opened it, which is fine, we never know what package is whose. What he did wrong was seeing a package of play foam, opening it and giving it to Dino.

Dino took it and played with it all over our rug. I came home to see the little foams embedded in the rub. I was so mad. Not only did he give it to Anthony when I needed it for an activity with him, but he let him play with it in the living room.

His punishment was to pick up every peace from the rug. Of course Dino gave up and is relaxing watching TV.

We watched Narnia during one of our many snow days. The next day, he wanted Daddy to watch it. I reminded Anthony what was happening at the beginning of the movie. (Trying to avoid the million and one questions). Dino looks at me, rolls his eyes and raises his hands. “I know what is happening, I know everything.” He huffs and looks back at the TV.

In an attempt to get Dino to do more chores. He used to clean up after himself while at daycare (they taught him this) now in kindergarten these skills are sliding away. I told him when he’s done with his snack to wash it, dry it, and put it away. He’s knows what to do, but looks at me. “I’m a kid. I don’t need to clean.”

I looked at him, trying not to yell or laugh. “Oh yes you do, or you can eat off dirty plates.”

Dino: “I got a story, Mommy and Daddy. One night there was an alien who killed people every night.”

Daddy: I can show you some aliens (think’s he’s being funny)

Dino: (Gets mad) Shakes finger in Daddy’s face. “I’ll kick you in the eye and make you bleed, then you’ll learn your lesson.”

One morning Dino was begging me to order a Disney show. We have ROKU so I would have to subscribe and pay for the Dinsey app. There is no way that is happening, between Netflix, Amazon, Hulu Plus, PBS kids, and Popcorn flix for Kids he has more choices that a boy could ask for. He kept asking and begging though and finally said, “You’re a mean witch.”

My reaction was pure instinct. I hunched over, clawed my hand, snarled my face and spoke like a witch. His face showed pure terror and I though he was either going to piss or poop his pants. He was beside himself in terror, now begging me to stop and be his mommy again.

I stopped and went back to “mommy mode” and told him not to call me names or I might become what he calls me.

When I picked him up later that day he kept looking at me scared sh*tless and asked, “You’re still my mommy, right?”

Dino singing opera….turn down your volume and enjoy!

  1. We had a similar issue with a Flarp putty vs. hallway runner a few years back. After much cleaning it was sadly retired.
    We order a ton on Amazon too. I love the convenience!
    Dino is getting so big! I <3 his videos.

    • Amazon is great!!! He is getting big, and going through a growth spurt eating like mad. I wonder if some people create arts and crafts just to mess with parents.

    • I think I did traumatize him, oh well, LOL. All I have to do is breathe heavy and almost growl and he stops immediately. He needs to learn to listen…I’m sure he’ll blame me for issues when he’s older.

  2. Kids are just so funny! I think the room might get hotter when my husband speaks too. Or maybe I just wish it did. I don’t dare try that witch move…my girls would burst into tears. Though it’s pretty darn funny!

  3. My son’s after-school teacher made some goop with them one afternoon. He brought it home and set it on the table. The bag wasn’t sealed all the way and it drip all over the carpet that night. I had to turn into ta witch to talk to his teacher the next day, LOL!!

Would love to read your thoughts
