Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 5 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:
Here’s who you’ll be hearing from in my house:
- Me, Mama O.
- Daddy O.
- Big Sister, age 9
- Little Brother, age 7
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.
Mixed up Lyrics
One night at dinner, my kids were changing the words to “I like to Move it, Move it” song.
Mom, your song should be, “I like to talk it, talk it. I like to talk it, talk it. I like to …. talk it!”
Dad, your song should be, “I like to snooze it, snooze it. I like to snooze it, snooze it. I like to … snooze it!”
Big sister’s is, “I like to read it, read it. I like to read it, read it. I like to … read it!”
Little brother’s is simply the song, being an active little boy that he is!
Little Brother’s Funny Sayings
Mom, can you do a rainbow load of laundry?
This sounded so sweet. I wash a lot of the bright colors together, but never thought of it as a rainbow load. It almost makes doing laundry sound like fun…almost.
Mom: Hey, can you help me make breakfast?
Little Brother: No, I’m in Legoland.
Little Brother refers to his comforter on his bed as a confronter.
A few weeks ago I bought a chewable vitamin. They were an unwelcome change from the gummy vitamins they replaced.
Little brother’s reaction: I have to eat 150 of them.
And later –
“The world is against me.”
My kids really enjoy reading. Sometimes bookmarks can’t be found. As in this case:
This is an example of the quality material they read.
During dinner Big Sister said, “C’est la Vie.”
Little Brother responded: La Vie
Yes…it does sound like, “Say la vie.”
Big, Big Sister
My little girl turned 9 this month. Daddy O. recently commented to me that our daughter is now halfway to 18.
When I think about it that way, this parenting gig is going by way too fast!
Here’s a picture of her at her friend birthday party (they made unicorn crafts at Michael’s Craft Store).
She even wears more grown-up clothing. I want to borrow these boots of hers.
Me and Daddy O.
One woman from church said to me, “My friend and I saw you and your family in church, and we think you look like teenagers.”
Hmm…well, we are well past that phase. Daddy O. is almost 40.
Here’s a recent picture of our youthful selves.

What a fun month of one-liners. Loved the recent pic of you — oh, to be young again! And, yes…..nine is halfway to 18. It goes by too fast
Thanks, Carol! I look forward to reading your blog post today too.
I want to borrow those boots too! Love the update on your family, it’s been a while, can’t believe how big your kids are getting!
Right? We could all have matching boots! Thanks, Karen. Yes, they’re growing up quickly!
Y’all do look young!! I like the snooze it snooze it comment—-if fits me perfectly!
Thanks – yeah, everyone can modify that song pretty easily!
