Fly on the Wall May 2013: The Birthday Edition

flyWelcome 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.

In our house we have three birthdays very close to each other.  Evil Genius has a birthday on April 19th.  For eleven days we are the same age, because I am a year older than him.  My birthday is May 1st, followed by The Princess’s birthday on May 6th.  Because of this fact, I present to you the Fly on the Wall Birthday Edition!

The Princess:  “Will Daddy be 40 on his birthday?”
Me:  “No, he’ll be 38.”
The Princess:  “Will you be 40 on your birthday?”
Me:  “No, I’ll be 39.”
The Princess:  “Oh good, because when you turn 41 you die.”
So she’s saying I’ve got two years.  I’d better make the most of it  (Yes I did tell her that she was misinformed…)

Me on my birthday.

Me on my birthday.

The Princess:  “Mommy, a Cheeto is the fastest animal on land.”

I was really concerned about the conversation my kids kept having.  I kept hearing about some “hot girl”.  Who do they think is hot and why?  I finally asked them.  As it turns out, “hot girl” is actually “Hawk Girl”-a comic book character.

The kids were putting pennies in the big coin thing-the kind where they go around and around forever until they finally plop in the hole in the bottom.
The Princess: “Where do the pennies go when they go in the hole?”
Evil Genius:  “There’s a big coin monster in there that eats them when.”
The Princess (obviously NOT believing his story):  “I wish I was a penny so I can go in there and see what’s REALLY there.”

Evil Genius and I were discussing that sleeping naked causes some people (including me) to have weird naked dreams.
Me: “So if you don’t normally sleep with pants on and you fall asleep in them then you must have the opposite.”
Evil Genius:  “Can you imagine that?  Hey I fell asleep with my pants on last night and I dreamed I went to a nudist colony and I HAD MY CLOTHES ON.”
This is just a sampling of some of the weird conversations we have in bed.

The Princess:  “I wish we had a magic TV.  I wish we had one so that if we wanted something it would just throw it out at us!”

The Professor:  “WOW!”
Evil Genius:  “What?”
The Professor:  “What?”
Evil Genius:  “Wow what?”
The Professor:  “?????”
Evil Genius:  “You said wow.  Wow what?”
The Professor:  “I did?”
Evil Genius: “Yes.”
The Professor:  “Oh, I guess didn’t hear myself say that.”

Evil Genius, a year older, and as you can see, also a year wiser

Evil Genius:  “I need a full body scan.  You know, so I can upload it somehow to my computer and get going on an actual Iron Man suit.”
Me:  “Can I interest you in lying down on the floor and having us trace around your body instead?”

When we went out for Evil Genius’s birthday, The Princess ordered the Naked Chicken Tenders, because they had the word naked in them of course!

Evil Genius to the kids:  “If you had your choice, what would you rather have, my ’53 Ford or my Ram?”
The Professor:  “I’d have to take a look at them first, then I’d decide.  What’s the difference?”
Evil Genius:  “One is a four wheel drive and one is a two wheel drive.”
The Professor:  “Oh, I’d rather have a four wheel drive.  It would be really weird to drive a truck with only two of the wheels.”

The Princess:  “If saltines didn’t have salt on them they’d just be ‘teens'”

Now that the weather is finally nice, we are trying to get our yard and garden up to snuff.  Evil Genius was cutting up some branches to put in the fire pit for future burning.
The Princess has been a bit concerned about the nature in our yard being hurt.
He heard the Professor comfort his sister “Don’t worry, the branches don’t feel anything!”

The Princess:  “Daddy I think your barb looks good!”
*Long pause*
Evil Genius:  “You mean my RHUBARB looks good!”

Our pediatrician informed me that kindergarten will be challenged by my daughter.  Yes you saw that right, it’s not the other way around.

Me to the family:  “Keep on saying all this great stuff.  I’ll have my whole Fly on the Wall post done before the day is out!”
Have a Happy May!  Buzz buzz!

  1. ROFL!!! TOO CUTE!!!
    My kids are no telling each other to not tell me anything or it will end up on the blog. I may have to resort to some sneaking in order to keep up with the Fly posts!! LOL

  2. So does that mean I’m WAY past my expiration date? No wonder I sometimes smell like sour milk! Your kids are adorable.

  3. So Cute. I love the two-wheel car comment. Kindergarten will leave you with a lot of blog content! BTW, I’m 42. I can’t promise more than that, but there is hope past 41 🙂 My son wrote on my birthday card, “Mom. 1970-2012” Kids scream “hope”, don’t they?

  4. What a great butterfly cake!
    So glad to hear that you’ll not be expiring in the next couple birthdays. 😉
    Happy Birthday to you beautiful lady, the adorable Princess and the Evil Genius… and MANY more!!!

  5. Cheetos ARE fast. Just try to keep a bag around my house! Yes, Kindergarten WiLL be challenged.

    Happy birthday to all. You made a beautiful butterfly cake!

  6. all those birthdays so close together…very cool.

    The “WOW-WHAT” conversation had me laughing pretty hard, that must have been hysterical. Giggle snort.

  7. My husband is currently beating down deaths door and I have a mere 4 years to go… AHHHH I better start my bucket list. LOL Great post. The kindergarten teacher has no clue what they are in for!

  8. Sarah,
    I love love love this and love it HARD. Feel free to tell The Princess that I am a mom of a 3-year old and that I am 44 and shockingly not yet dead (knock on wood please as I just did – for real. for real for real). Also? OMG I miss sleeping naked. I did until my hub’s teen daughter moved in with us. I miss it. Also? Cheetos are super-fast. They go from being yummy to being a bigger ass in about 3 hours. That’s pretty fast.
