Good morning blogging land! It’s time for a buzzing good time! Today fifteen bloggers are inviting you into their homes to catch a glimpse of what you’d see and hear if you were a fly on the wall of their house. Come on in and buzzzzzzzzzzzz around my house!
Time to get ready and share some funny… let me get stretched out and loosened up…I’ve got to admit I’ve missed a lot of opportunities this past month. I know there have been many more moments than this, I’ve just been extremely busy! This one is short for a post written by me. Maybe that’s a good thing?
Both of my children participated in t-ball this summer. This meant many bathroom trips, and the facilities at this particular location are way up at the top of a hill. The second or third trip of the evening brought extra entertainment to anyone who happened to walk by when my daughter happened to be in there. She was singing at the top of her lungs: “Dancing on the pole, dancing on the pole, I’m dancing on the pole…”
For those of you who are thinking that we encourage the wrong kind of thing, I’ll inform you that there is a bar on the wall to help people get off the potty in this particular bathroom. Apparently she thinks this is a pole that you dance on. Sorry to disappoint anyone…
Just in case you were thinking that YOUR kids were weird, think again. My kids wanted their picture taken with the “cute little fridge” at Wal-Mart. The Professor brought socks.
One Saturday morning my son came out of the shower and said this to me:
“Mom, I’ll take an English muffin. I want colby jack cheese on it. Toasted.”
Oh I’m sorry, I didn’t realize that I was living at Subway…
My phone has been giving me a lot of trouble again. I’m trying to avoid throwing it against a wall. It gets too hot, locks up, or like yesterday it chooses to call random people like our utility company. Last weekend I was on my way to pick up Evil Genius. My phone chose this time to completely lock up on me, no matter how many times I removed the battery, blew on the inside of it, or cussed at it.
It eventually decided to power on, only it wasn’t quite working right. I have recently discovered the Talk to Text feature, and was trying to send my husband the message that I would be pulling up to his location very soon. It didn’t seem to understand anything I told it. As a matter of fact, the results it was returning were no less than hilarious.
Me being me, I had to put the phone to the test. I started shouting random words and phrases at it. Some it half understood and some it didn’t get at all. I totally lost it when I yelled “Stingalingadingdangdong” at it, and after it thought a long time about it, the phrase registered as “Hang a dong”.
Mommy, I’m an “M”!
Only in my house will you hear this: “Good night dear. I’m going upstairs to study quantum physics.”
The Princess couldn’t wait to show me what she had found at the checkout lane at Target. She pointed to a box of fruit snacks. She exclaimed excitedly “Look Mommy, free fat!!!!!!
The Professor managed to break his glasses AGAIN, this time by swinging them around by the earpiece while running them to the car so he wouldn’t break them (Yes I’m well aware of the irony here too…) We went to the glasses place after a few days of being without. The nice ladies once again put the poor things together for him. The Professor put them on his face, beamed and yelled: “Look everyone, I’m ME again!”
I asked The Princess what she likes best about kindergarten. “Mrs Johnson has LOTS of Polly Pockets and a Huge Littlest Pet Shop town.” Yup, we know the way to her heart!
The Professor has been eating Frosted Mini Wheats for breakfast. Of course we buy the generic Malt O Meal ones since it’s pretty much the same thing. For those of you that don’t have to buy that stuff, Malt O Meal cereals come in a big bag instead of a box for the most part. For some reason, Wal-Mart had it in boxes for $1 so of course I bought it.
He most enjoyed this when I brought it out for breakfast the following morning:
“It’s a bag of cereal wearing a box disguise!”
I can’t help but laugh every time I see this picture. It’s just too funny!
I know I’ve been scarce these days, but rest assured that if nothing else, this new position I have taken over will bring plenty of fodder for Fly on the Wall. At the preschool storytime yesterday I announced that it was snacktime. A little boy exclaimed “Oh thank goodness, I’m HUNGRY! Do you have french fries?”
Don’t you forget about all the other houses you can buzz on over to! Go check out what flies on the wall might have to hear at these abodes:
