Mommy: AKA Karen, me…the wife and mom
Daddy: AKA Tony, husband and dad
AJ – our only child, a 7 year old boy who thinks he knows it all and is the one in charge
Bonus – our sweet and lovable adopted rat terrier
I had a computer issue and never posted August’s Fly on the Wall. So I am including new stuff and some things from August’s posts.
Me: “How come this Lego guy doesn’t have an arm?”
AJ: Rolls his eyes at me. “We don’t talk about that.”
While all hugging as a family
Tony: “I smell a mommy and an AJ. AJ smells like dirty and chocolate and Mommy smells like olive oil and cleaning products.
AJ: “No, Mommy smells like an angel.”
While driving home from after school he began to talk.
AJ: “Halloween is coming soon. I love all the holidays, except Valentine’s Day.”
Me: “Why don’t you like Valentines Day?”
AJ: “Because of that guy.”
Me: “What guy?”
Rolls his eyes “You know, the guy who flies around and makes people kiss. Yoiu know, Mommy, Cupid. Kissing is gross.”
Out at dinner with my sister-in-law and her husband. They were asking AJ some questions as he seemed tired or upset. By the looks on his face, you could tell he was getting more pissed with each question. I took him outside to see what was really wrong.
“I’m 7 years old. I don’t need everybody asking me all these questions. I’m not a baby.”
Boy when he’s in a mood we all suffer, LOL.
AJ walked around Rocking Horse Ranch as if he was the one in charge. He loved when staff talked to him and reminded them that he’s been there before.
“I come here every year. I know all about this place.”
“I did it! I went down the slide. I am so awesome.”
When you’re too tired to eat, but really want that brownie.
He got picked to go on stage for LET’S MAKE A DEAL. It was one of the many awesome moments of vacation. No matter how much money he was offered ($7) he still wanted what was under the box. He won an cool Rocking Horse Ranch Tumblr!
