Before we start with the crazy things that have been said in our house, let me begin by saying there have been some changes in the blog. As my little guy grows up, I’ve made the blog grow up too. I won’t be changing the name, but you will notice a new moniker “AJ”, this is close to his name without giving away his real name. In addition, I’m removing all the cutesy banners and replacing them with more of my style banners and graphics. This will always be Dinosaur Superhero Mommy, but will continue to grow as AJ does….So now onto the Fly on the Wall.
- Mommy: AKA Karen, me…the wife and mom
- Daddy: AKA Tony, husband and dad
- AJ – our only child, an almost 6 year old boy who thinks he knows it all and is the one in charge
After looking for the remote, AJ laughs and says. “Oh, Mommy, it was so funny, I couldn’t find the remote, but it was in my hands. I’m losing my mind and getting old.”
While waiting in the car for our nacho order to be ready for pickup, a hungry AJ, who is tired of waiting says. “Are you f*cking crazy?” Yes, he learned that from me. Oh well, he’ll hear more curses from me, but thankfully never a derogatory statement about another person.
This time AJ couldn’t find his froggie in all his mess. Imagine that!?!?!?! “I’m gonna freak out if I don’t find my froggie.”
Then he goes happily back to his fort after finding froggy.
I wouldn’t let AJ eat two, rather large, cookies for dessert. He only got one and kept trying to change my mind. After laying down the law, he gave me his evil look and said, “You and your rules.”
AJ is happily sipping a fruit smoothing from the local health food store. This was a Mommy and AJ reward for a busy day of karate and haircuts for us both.
AJ:”Dodo birds are stupid.”
Me: I understand what you are saying, but I don’t like that word.”
AJ: “Well, I think it’s appropriate.” with a sarcastic nod of his head.
Me: “Well, I don’t and I don’t like it.”
After we spoke about other words to use. Daddy explained the word adapt…which was perfect.
Daddy knocked a marker off the table and didn’t pick it up. AJ made his evil face and said, “It is your responsibility to pick up that marker, or I’ll spank you in the butt.”
I think AJ feels he’s in charge of us all…Has me wondering who the adult really is?!?!?!?!
While putting AJ to bed one night, he asked if I was going to be around for a long time. We’ve had this conversation before, I told him I would be around to babysit his kids.
“I’m going to have lots of kids.”
“Oh really? How many do you want?”
“I want ten kids, 3 brothers, 3 sisters, and 5 little babies.”
“Wow, that’s a lot of kids to take care of.”
“I know, I can do it. I guess I do need marry Zoe,”
“You can marry the person you love.”
“Do I have to kiss her?”
“Yes, if you are married, you will need to kiss and hug her.”
“I know how to kiss.” He tries to show me the kiss, but I explain that he can only give me mommy/son kisses. So he kisses the air….giving butterfly kisses while moving his head back and forth. “I have to kiss her all over her mouth.”
I an NOT ready for him to grow up!
