Fly on the Wall September



Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 16 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.

Buzz around, see what you think, then click on these links for a peek into some other homes


  • Mommy: AKA Karen, me…the wife and mom 
  • Daddy: AKA Tony, husband and dad
  • AJ – our only child, a 6 year old boy who thinks he knows it all and is the one in charge


As I’m trying to leave for work in the morning, I have to tell hubby something important. AJ isn’t having any of that as he feels his thoughts and ideas must be heard over ours.

AJ: “Mommy I need to talk to you.”

Mommy: “Okay but let me tell Daddy something quickly.”

AJ: “No, Mommy. Focus! Focus on me!”

 Mommy: “When you help me around the house it makes me very happy” In response to AJ cleaning up what he dropped on the floor. 

AJ: “Really? Wow!” Is he happy that he helped me or shocked that I’m so pathetic?

 AJ: “I’m hungry.”

Mommy: “Well you just had cookies.”

AJ: “Well, can I have a banana at least?”

Mommy: “Yes, you can always have fruit.”

AJ: waves me off  “I’ll get it, you sit right there.”

AJ: “I’m looking for a show. I don’t remember the name. There’s a witch, cat, dog, broom, and dragon. It teaches you to be friends and fix things.”

After searching through Netflix for about ten minutes we found it…Room on the Broom. It’s a cute book and short movie. 

AJ started school one week before me. I love putting him on the bus for those few days as I normally only do pick up. The first week the buses are adjusting to their routes and traffic, so they can be a little late. AJ was tried of waiting so he decided to rest.

AJ: sighs loudly “Where is this bus? I’m tired of waiting. I have things to do.”

Daddy and Mommy:

One morning the frozen bag of pancakes I made is NOT in the freezer. How can that be? I thought I was going mad. Could AJ have eaten the remaining ten pancakes? After hours of searching, I find them in the fridge next to the vitamins. Hubby is the culprit, I know it!!!!! 

I nicely asked hubby but he denied it up and down. To show hubby I wasn’t picking on him, AJ was questioned as well. Not that I want to be mean, but they need to be in the freezer so they can last longer. 

AJ: “No, Mommy. It wasn’t me. Why would I do that?”

Later on, hubby admitted he might have done that by accident. I wasn’t too harsh on him, we all make mistakes. Heck, I’ve left out a HUGE batch of chicken quesadillas and chicken soup. I thought I’d let them cool off only to wake the next morning and have to toss it all out.

Fly on the Wall September — 8 Comments

  1. Just recently I put leftovers away – but instead of putting them in the fridge, I put them in the “container” cupboard. Finding them a few days later was not pretty!

    I would love the answer to “What things do you have to do?”

  2. AJ is so funny! Such a big personality for a 6 year old.

    As the the food thing, I swear it’s a good thing I get up and go into the kitchen most nights. There is always something left out on the counter that needs to be in the fridge or freezer.

  3. 6 going on 16. I love the things that come out of that little boy’s mouth. Obviously it’s hard work being 6, so much to do…

    Room on the broom is my little girl’s favourite book and movie. We have to read/watch it at least once a week. I don’t mind because it is pretty cute.

Would love to read your thoughts
