Fly On The Wall - February!

Alright Bleeps (bloggy-peeps ?) Have you ever thought about what people might think if they saw or heard what goes on behind-the-scenes at your house? Do you ever wonder what it would be like to catch a glimpse of someone else’s daily life? Well you asked for it. Karen from Baking In A Tornado is making it happen and here’s your chance. Today 15 bloggers are inviting you into their homes to be a fly on the wall.

                                                    Fly on the Wall

Buzz around, see what you think, then click on these links for a peek into some other homes:

                                        -----------------------------------
Much of what you would overhear in my house could be summed up under the title of: "Out of the mouths of babes..."  or  "Holy crap, your kid said what?!"
 
*14y/o last year: "My teacher laughed at me today"
  Me:  "Oh mercy, what for?"
  14y/o:  "She asked me to read out loud and I told her I can't read, I'm anorexic"
  Me:  "Dyslexic?"  (which he's not btw)
  14y/o:  "whatever."
 
*17y/o:  "What is the mafia?"
  Me:  "You know, like the mob?"
  17y/o:  "What's the mob?"
  Me:  "You know the Sopranos?"
  17y/o:  "the people that sing really high?"
 
*13y/o:  "Mom, your breath smells like hot frog legs on a bed of wild mice"
 
*Ex-husb:  "I keep getting things from the hospital. Yesterday I got a 700 dollar bill"
  14y/o:  "There's such a thing as a 700 dollar bill?!  Is it real??"
 
*I told the 14y/o to shovel a path to the oil spout on the back of the house because the delivery guy was coming.
  14y/o: "How big does it need to be?"
  Me:  "Big enough for the guy to walk through it"
  14y/o:  "How fat is the delivery guy?"
 
Just because I have a small love affair with wine:
*13y/o: Mom, can you help me with my math when you're done pouring your Cup of Joy?
 
*11y/o: Mom are you drinking wine?
  13y/o: She drinks wine all the time, wine is like her best friend.
                                     -----------------------------------------
Welcome to my life.

  1. I love your post, mostly because I can relate. I have teenagers too. Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's a whole other Circle of Hell. Thanks for sharing the funny!

    1. "Circle of Hell'! I love that, it's so accurate! Once I had teenagers I stopped complaining about the 'Terrible Two's'.

  2. "Mom, your breath smells like hot frog legs on a bed of wild mice," Congratulations on the creativity of your children! I hope they can use it for more than just insults but if they can't, it's still pretty cool.
