Welcome to this month’s edition of The Fly on the Wall, created by and hosted by the lovely Karen of Baking in a Tornado. Fourteen bloggers are simultaneously publishing glimpses into their homes just for your entertainment. The links to the other participating blogs can be found at the bottom of this post.
Now, prepare to be amused!
Apparently we own Yoda’s VCR.
Evil Genius: “Which one of us is going to pause the movie?”
Me: “There is no pause, there is only stop.”
Because there is… and no remote either.
So the dog has now picked up on the kids’ little game-so now not only do the children magically appear and need things whenever I get on the phone, he runs up to me and won’t stop barking at the phone. Maybe he wants to call somebody who cares?
I never thought that bringing home calendars from the dollar store for the kids would provide them with so much entertainment! They have busily been trying to find all the important dates.
The Professor’s important dates=sporting events and Nerdsdays (translation=Big Bang Theory nights)
The Princess’s important dates=birthdays of friends and family
Me: “Can you hand me the remote?”
The Princess: “Which one, the big one or the lumpy one?”
I can add another talent to the growing list-this evening my husband got up to get something and set his book on my arm. That’s right, I make a fabulous bookmark!
There was dancing, yelling, then crying downstairs while watching New Year’s Rockin Eve. The Professor comes running upstairs chattering “She was pretending she was a giant chili dog on the big chair that kept collapsing…”
Evil Genius “Is your sister ok?”
The Professor “I don’t know, but I just can’t stop thinking about chili dogs.”
She was fine.
Trying to find a sound app to fall asleep to on my IPhone. Among the choices on the one I’m trying out: Sizzling bacon!
The Princess is hoping to repaint her room very soon. Naturally she was thrilled when Evil Genius started talking about rebuilding her bed this spring.
Evil Genius: “And your mom can help you choose the color.”
The Princess: “OK! I want my room painted in rainbow colors!”
I asked The Princess to bring me the remote so I could change the channel.
The Princess asked as she handed me the remote “Why can’t we watch this show?”
Me: “Because Bones isn’t really appropriate for little kids.”
The Princess: “Why?”
Me: “Because there’s really icky stuff on there.”
The Princess: “Like bones?”
Me: “Yeah, and dead people and blood and guts.”
The Princess: “Dead animals?”
Me: “Nope, just people.”
The Princess: “Oh, that’s okay then.”
When told that there would be a two hour delay the next morning, the princess smiled and started cheering “Yay! More time with mommy!”
Did I mention that she was my favorite that day?
