Fly on the Wall

This house is nuts.
We should have our own reality show.
How many times do you find yourself saying this? If you’re like me, probably more often than not.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to catch a glimpse of someone else’s daily life?

Here’s your chance.

Today, I along with 11 other bloggers invite you into our homes as we partake in the Baking in a Tornado – Fly on the Wall challenge.

A 15 year old Diva’s Talkfest
(Routine Chatter)
She:  When can I get my phone back?
Me:   I don’t know.
She:  Can’t you just turn the texting off?
Me:   Can’t you just not text while you’re suppose to be doing your homework?
IPhone 4 White
(Final Exam Debates)
She:  Mom, I need to eat early.  What time is dinner?
Me:  When dinner’s done.
She:  Can you quiz me?
Me:  On what?
She:  Everything.
Me:  *crickets* (deep breath)
She:  How much are As again?
Me:   As are $10.  Bs are $5.
She:  What are Cs?
Me:   Cs don’t pay, they subtract, and Ds cancel everything.
She:  That’s not fair.
Me:  Or I cannot pay you at all for grades.  You’re suppose to get good grades anyway.
She:  That’s fair, that’s fair, that’s fair.

(Afternoon Drive)

Me:   How was your day?
She:  Fine.  No – just regular?
Me:   Oh.  Do you have everything?
She:   Yes.
         (arriving home)
She:   Mom, I left my (insert text book here) in my locker.
Me:    Let’s go…Grr!
Conversations with a 19 year old Artist
(Morning Chit-Chat)
He:  Mom, I know you don’t like Superman or DC comics, but you have to see the trailer for Man of Steel.
Me:  That’s ok.
He:  Come on Mom.  It’s awesome.
Me:  Ok
He:  Ok?
Me:  Yeah, go ahead and play it.

He:  So what did you think?
Me:  I have to admit it looks pretty awesome.
He:  Yes!
(Late Night Ramblings)
Me:  Come quick! Come quick-come quick !  You need to hurry, I want you to see this!
He:  Oh my gosh!  What is that thing?
Me:  A possum.
He/Me:  It’s huge!
He:  Look how long his tail is!
Me:  It’s just sitting there – like he owns the joint.  Be quiet and don’t move.  I’m getting my camera.  I want to tweet this.
He:   Mom, Do you ever think we’re living in the Matrix?
Me:   What?
He:   You know a simulated universe?
Me:   No.
He:   You don’t?
Me:   No.
He:   WHY NOT!?
Me:   (blink, blink)


He:  Ahh CRAP!
Me:  What’s wrong?
He:  I forgot my sketch book at work.
Me:  Call them and tell someone to put it away.
He:  I need to go get it.
Me:  You need to go get it?
Me:  I’m not telling you not to go get it.
He:  I’ll be right back.  I know exactly where it is.
Life with Mimi – 2 year old Miniature Schnauzer
She:  Woo, woo!
Me:  What is it Mimi?
She:  Woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo!
Me:  Is it a bird?  A rabbit?  A squirrel?
She:  Woo, woo!
Me:  Oh, it’s the mail truck.  Thanks Mimi.

She:  Woo, woo!
Me:  Thanks Mimi.
Sweet Nothings In My Ear
Hubby:  What do you be writing for hours?
Me:  What?
Me:  I’m doing a lot of things. (Fly on the Wall post – hehe!)

(2 weeks after eye surgery)
Hubby:  When do you think I can start driving again?
Me:  When you can friggin’ see.
He:  Wow – that’s harsh.
Me:  I’m Just Sayin’…(Damn!)

Well that’s it.  A peek into my home life; better than some, worse than others.
Follow the fly – become the fly and peek into these homes…I know I will!

I also love reading science fiction and take a look at the site here playing the.

    You did an amazing job, I laughed through the whole thing. Especially Mimi's part. Clearly she was meant for your household, you understand her so well!

    Love it! I love that your kids forget their stuff and that you have conversations with your pet. Mimi is adorable!
    I will have to share that trailer of the "Man of Steel" movie with my son. He will LOVE it.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    It does. My son is totally jazzed that I agreed with him. I'm more of a Spiderman, X-Men kinda girl.

    I know me too! She appreciates it. No allowance for doing chores, but I do pay for grades. It seems to work.

    Thank you. I was nervous at first, and was contemplating backing out. I'm glad I didn't. I really enjoyed this post.

    I'm glad you like my version of the Fly on the Wall.Slowly but surely, Mimi and I have become best friends. It was touch and go for a moment. I think your son would like the Man of Steel trailer 🙂

    ROFLOL!! This is awesome!!!!
    And paying for the grades reminds me again of how much cheaper homeschooling is… LOL We used to pay for grades, too. 😉

    I'm glad you can laugh at my pain, but seriously I thought about homeschooling. At times, I feel I could do better. The whole paying for grades is a racket, but it works 🙂 and it's the closest thing you'll get to an allowance in my house.

    I just had the same conversation with my 14 year old about grades!
    Great minds think a like. 😉
    We don't do allowance either. Chores are what has to be done to keep the home and family functioning and just because I freakin say so.
    Glad I found you through the Fly On The Wall Challenge.
    It was fun to get to know you a bit!

    I agree 100% that's how it works in my house. Chores are what has to be/need to be done and because I said so! 🙂 Great minds do think alike. The Fly on the Wall Challenge was a little different for me, but I'm glad I participated.
