Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 6 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.
Here’s who you’ll be hearing from:
- Me, Mama O.
- Daddy O.
- Big Sister, age 7
- Little Brother, age 5
And here we are, enjoying the beautiful fall leaves and some amazing weather!
As overheard at the Dinner Table
Daddy O: We need to take the leaf out of the table.
Big Sister: I don’t see a leaf. (a leaf of the table to make it bigger)
Little Brother: I’m eating an army of grapes.
Daddy O. remarked one morning,”That’s a bird in a blanket. (I had wrapped up a sausage in a pumpkin pancake) My reply, “What, I thought it was pigs in a blanket.” Daddy O. explained, “No, it’s turkey sausage, so it’s a bird.”
Highlights from the Kids
Little Brother while eating ice cream: Neck freeze! (as opposed to brain freeze)
We had a great time playing at Grandma and Grandpa’s House with cousins. I made a comment on how nice they played with their cousins, and Little Brother set me straight, “They are not our cousins. They are our friends!”
At dinner recently, we were asking the kids about their favorite part of the day. My son chimed in, “My favorite part of the day was Mama.” I asked, “Well, was it something you did with mama?” His reply was precious, ” No, just Mama!” Melt my heart…I wrote about him still being my baby in this post.
Big Sister declared, “The older I get the funnier I get.” Don’t we all?!
Big Sister: Do you know what I call weeds? The flowers’ mean neighbor.
New Level of Humor in our House
One of our toy magnetic board and decorative skeleton will never be the same.
What’s Really Essential?
One evening I told him, “I declined to be part of a candle fundraiser.” He replied, “Good, we don’t use those.” I added, “Yea, and some family members now use essential oils more.” Daddy O. responded, “I’ve never understood for what or for whom oils were essential.” I laughed, “Me too. Good one!”
Burn it Now
I had my super organized BFF over, and this time we attacked my closet (after organizing toys one other time she visited). To some of my clothes she said, “Oh my, burn it now!” I highly recommend having some adult beverages while enlisting the help of a good friend to downsize your closet. Fun times and lots of laughs! Here were some of the cast-offs from that night:

That magnetic board and skeleton are an omen. If those kids are keeping you on your toes at this age, you need to be hoarding valium!
Ah toilet humor, my five year old’s entire repertoire revolves around going to the toilet. I’m glad I’m not the only one putting up with this.
Potty humor can be enjoyed for a lifetime!
I get chest freeze. 🙂 neck freeze LOL
All different kinds of freezes!
