Fly on the Wall


Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 13 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 7 year old boy who thinks he knows it all and is the one in charge

Bonus – our sweet and lovable adopted rat terrier 

Told him he needed to eat his dinner or I was going to throw it out, he left it sitting there for 30 minutes. When he finally started eating, I asked “Do you like it?”

He responded, “Lil’ bit.”

Has my son been watching Robert Dinero movies?????

Taking his time getting ready to leave. I finally yelled at him, let’s go.

He snarked back with “Hold on Missy/”

I told him I signed him up for the Halloween party at the after school program.

“How much did it cost?”

“Fifteen dollars.”

“That’s not bad.”

Really, who is this kid?

At the local pharmacy picking up a prescription eye drops for pink eye…sighs…for both of us.

AJ is going on and on about how Tony ate his huge Hershey bar form from four years ago.

“Dude, let it go already. You’ve gotten enough candy to make up for it.”

The pharmacist smiles, but then tries to hodl back laughter when she hears this….

“Tuna is from a plant.”

“No it’s not. It’s a fish, you know, tuna fish.”

“Well my teacher says it’s from a plant.”

“I think you might heard of heard wrong. I think your teacher knows that tuna is a fish.”

AJ is eating a croissont and a piece of it falls to the floor. Since he loves them so much he steps on it to prevent Bonus from getting it. Then quickly puts it in his mouth.

I stared at him in horror and after a second he looks at me and cringes. “I didn’t mean to do that.” As he runs to the garbage to spit it out. 

“Perhaps if you just let Bonus have it you wouldn’t have eaten your own foot stink.” 

Tony is with AJ in the mornings and at times has epic battles to get ready for school. He told him one morning, “Put your shoes and socks on.” Since someone was a zombie in front of the TV.

My snarky kid responded with, “Well obviously Daddy, I have to put my clothes on first.” 

Tony said he had to take a deep breath and walk away. Of course he came back to a 7 year old standing in front of the TV fully dressed sans socks and shoes. ***eye twitches*** 

As Tony was dropping off AJ in the car line AJ was complaining about getting out five cars back. Tony told him he has to wait till they are the 2nd car, no excuses. AJ did not like this and was complaining the entire time. When they finally were the second car, AJ jumped out and screamed, “Thank God, fresh air!” Of course the custodian and police officer who handle drop off heard AJ scream, I mean how could they not? They looked at Tony and smirked. 

I had a talk with AJ about. He of course thought it was super funny. I had to keep my poker face, but I have to to agree with him. It was hysterical. I would have loved to been a fly in that car.

This really did make my day!!!!!

  1. I love how sassy AJ is. It makes me feel better about Miss K’s own sass levels as I now know I’m not the only one dealing with attitude and trying to keep a straight face.

Would love to read your thoughts
