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.

Watching Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian, Dino insisted this was the first one. I tried to explain to him that it was the second one, giving examples of the first vs the second movie. Then explained that I would know this because I like the movies. Dino rolled his eyes at me and shook his hand like I was a fool. “No, Mommy. I know more than you Mommy. I know this movie and know this is the first one. You are wrong, Mommy.”

Dino and I worked on creating double decker cars…I am so addicted to Legos. He wanted a picture of our cars. He looked at his daddy and said. “This is my masterpiece.”

Dino was having trouble putting his undies on the right way. I am trying to tell him to let me show him which way they go and he can do it…of course he’s yelling at me.

He slams the undies down. “Fine, if you know so much about undies, you do it.”

Instead of getting mad at him, I make a silly face. “Well I do know a lot about undies.”

We both giggled.

Dino struggling to put away all the toys he took out. He knows the rule, you take out what you want, but put it all away. He gets mad and screams. “Hey, I need help. I only have two hands.”

We were meeting my friend and her daughter at Whole Foods then heading over to the mall. Dino was in one of his moods.

“I don’t want to go to Whole Foods, Mommy. Can we just meet them at the mall?”

“Cathy and Cathleen don’t know what breakfast to get. I told them you know the best foods there.”

He smugly smiles. “It’s true, Mommy. I know it all.” then walks always with a pompous head tilt.

One morning as I’m getting ready for work…this is what I hear

“Daddy please put on Pokemon.”

Daddy, I’m waiting and Pokemon is still not on.”

“Well then if you’re in a rush you put it on.”

“No, Daddy, I’m all he way over here, you’re closer. I have important things to do.”

“Oh really?”

Now that Dino has reading glasses, I keep repeating about taking good care of them, putting them in his case, backpack, and bringing them home.

Finally he growls. “I know already. Enough, Mommy.”

We all went out to dinner on Saturday Night to celebrate our 14 wedding anniversary. Yes! 14 years of marriage…20 years together! Anyway, the place we went to has brown paper on the tables to let kids draw…Dino brought markers and crayons.

The waitress wrote her name on the table, “Hi, my name is Erin…in case you need to know.” As Tony and I were ordering, Dino wrote his name. “My name is Anthony.”He then pointed to it and said. “Just in case you need to know.”  This kid cracks me up!

Then we started playing a favorite game of Dino’s. We have to take turns trying to make each other laugh. I tried to make Tony laugh, but couldn’t do my normal routine as we were in the middle of a restaurant. Dino stood up on his chair and loudly said. “Don’t worry, Mommy, I can handle this.” Of course Tony and I were in hysterics…we love this kid.

We decided to have dessert, Dino wanted us to share gluten free chocolate cake…it was almost like a fudge brownie. Dino couldn’t even finish it, it was so rich, gooey, and thick. Tony asked how it was and I said, not bad, but you know it’s coming out the same way it’s going in. Yes, terrible bathroom humor in a restaurant…only in our family.

  1. Love his new reading glasses! The double decker Lego cars are very nice too 🙂
    I think that restaurant is on to something by covering the tables. Kids (and adults) can keep busy while being creative.
    The undies comment still has me laughing!

  2. Oh my…he is a riot, just wait until he’s a teen if he’s this smart now. Because at 13 they become masters of all knowledge LOL so you will have a master mind by then. He is too cute! Love reading all about his little moments. and Happy 14th

Would love to read your thoughts
