Fly on the Wall: Is it Kiddie Cocktail Time?

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.

Fly on the Wall Post

I’ll take you back to Christmas for a few favorite phrases we heard over the holidays.

My FAVORITE came from big sister on Christmas morning (now 5 years old): We were good! Santa did come!

So precious!

Here were some picture highlights from our Christmas:

Mama O.'s Christmas with family - Elsa WAS under the tree for big sister!

Mama O.’s Christmas with family – Elsa WAS under the tree for big sister, as a doll and beautiful quilt from Grandma! I’m posing with my fun food processor – it’s AWESOME!

Big sister & Little brother (3 years old) would alternately say, “You’re going to be on the naughty list.” I believe this started up again the DAY AFTER Christmas! They are really understanding this Santa thing!

Daddy O. (who had a lot of time off during the holidays – yay) commented one day, “There is glitter everywhere.” My response, “I think it was Twilight Sparkle (a My Little Pony), but welcome to having a daughter.”  This also reminds me of the viral post about sending your enemies glitter – this probably wouldn’t phase our house!

As I mentioned in this post, I buy my own Santa presents and actually saw Daddy O. come home with the food processor that I suggested as a gift idea. It’s fine…I’m just more of the shopper in our house.  I DID have a little snafu with my own Santa system this year. On December 30th, while Daddy O. and I were watching a movie, I suddenly realized, “Wait, I think I have a Christmas present I didn’t open in my stocking.”  I was right!

Don't forget about small boxes you buy for yourself! This one was jewelry!

While putting together a Lego-like Barbie Dream House with big sister, she needed to take a break, explaining, “Mom, I have to go blow up the Death Star (her brother’s toy).” My my, she will be one well-rounded girl!

Fun with Star Wars

Daddy O. is a big Star Wars fan, so we’ve been watching some of the movies together and reading Star Wars books as a family.  As I mentioned earlier, my son received a “blow up the Death Star” car / race track toy that both kids enjoy. Some Star Wars related chatter in our home:

Big sister: I called my brother a wookie.

A lot of questions:

  • Little brother: Why did Anakin turn to the dark side?
  • Big sister: Is Darth Sidious the Emperor? Why did he turn to the dark side?

Both kids: Baby Ewoks are cute!

Daddy O.’s Birthday

To celebrate, I pulled out all the stops: I bought him bacon, telling him, “Because nothing says happy birthday like bacon.” Besides bacon, we enjoyed some time at an indoor water park, went out for sushi as a family, and watched another Star Wars movie as a family that night. It was a good time!

Polar Vortex – Best Quote from Daddy O.

“There’s no such thing as bad weather – only inappropriate clothing.”  This was so true during the polar vortex that dropped temps down to -25 with the wind chill. I dressed like this when bringing big sister to school:

#winning! Screw you polar vortex - we're still going out of the house!

#winning! Screw you polar vortex – we’re still going out of the house!

Little Brother’s Highlights

A lot of a three year old’s comments fall under a random category, so it is with his words that I will leave you.

Mom, I want one of those cheese-curdy things.

It was a cauliflower. And he ATE it! YES!

Last Friday at 10:00 am he says:

Mom, I want a kiddie cocktail!”

My reply:

No honey, I will not make you a kiddie cocktail. Maybe tonight.

Little brother was saying “governor” in place of “co-worker,” as in, “Daddy, do you need to take that Lego movie back to your governor?”

At the end of a long, busy day with the kids, I was tired and just sitting down to read a magazine.  My son scooted up on my lap, saying, “Can I come up?” I’m sure I grumbled something, but then he said one of the sweetest phrases that I have ever heard:

I love you more than anything!

I hope you hear a lot of sweet words like that in your home too! Have a lovely Friday and be sure to click on these links for a peek into some other homes too:

  1. Baby Ewoks are cute, I agree.
    We have a HUGE Star Wars fan in our house too.
    I buy my own presents usually too. It is a fantastic system but my hubs never tried to slip in a wicked food processor to boot. I think I might be doing this wrong. I must learn your secrets.;)

  2. Your kids are so cute. I love that your daughter can blow up a DeathStar AND spread glitter everywhere.
    Seriously, how DID you get the man to buy a food processor?
    There are not enough “Awwws” in the world when your kids tell you they love you more that anything. Precious.

  3. Yay! I’m not the only one who buys my own Santa presents!! At least yours were all there – I had one that didn’t even arrive until the first week of January. Thanks, China Postal Service. 😛
