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 in my house:
- Me, Mama O.
- Daddy O.
- Big Sister, age 8
- Little Brother, age 6
Since I have been writing these blog posts since 2014, I have my own Fly Post Page. Check it out if you want to hear more craziness from my house.
The first day back to school after the holidays and I ask the kids how their day was.
Big Sister: Good
Little Brother: Annoying!
I could tell Little Brother was grumpy and tired, so I said later, “Well, maybe you should go to bed early. Sometimes after a bad day, a good night’s rest will make you feel better.”
Little Brother replied, “I didn’t say I had a bad day. It was a miserable day.”
Just Between Siblings
I can’t remember the exact context, but I heard the kids talking:
Little Brother: Me thinking only of myself.
Big Sister: If you do that, then you can’t be a Jedi.
Daddy O. has them well-trained on Star Wars.
Two Cute One-liners from Smart Kids
Big Sister’s friend said, “Don’t yuck someone else’s yum.”
Little Brother declared (as he asked me to read him a story), “A story will make a good snuggle even better.”
Little Brother brought home some journal entries from his kindergarten class, and they really are great. It’s adorable to see what stands out in his mind and what he chooses to draw and share. I think he could be a future blogger.
YES, this is true. We DID take the kids to a beer garden in town. There IS a playground and slide there, so it IS family-friendly. No, this isn’t a weekly thing. Of course, he writes about this in kindergarten!!
Grandma’s Got a New Job
My mom recently retired, and her schedule has been quite full. I was telling Daddy O., “Grandma is working the polls.”
And then I realized that it could be interpreted as “poles.” We just cracked up.
Grandma will be working as part of the primary election staff just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
The BEST for Last!
Big Sister: Mom is smart. She is raising two kids.

I don’t even know where to start . . . the pics are absolutely adorable (and hysterical), Grandma working the poles sure got a chuckle, “Don’t yuck someone else’s yum” is going to be my new mantra, but best was last, LOVE that she knows how smart you are!
Thanks, Karen! I know, I really am liking my son’s artwork and writing. The things kids come up with!
