Fly on da wall...

So welcome to my insanity... or bits and piece of it, anyway, courtesy of  Karen @Baking In A Tornado!  It's my first time so be gentle...  This is what it's all about:

"Fly on the Wall is a monthly post by a group of bloggers challenged to let our readers see what it might be like to be a fly on the wall in our homes. Each post is not a single story, but a compilation of snippets, each one its own quote or event or conversation (or disaster) strung together to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse into our lives."

Should I apologize ahead of time?  Nah.....

Sitting on the couch watching TV one night....
Me: "I feel like I bloat around the face when I'm about to start."
Hubbs: " You don't "bloat around the face"..."
Me:  "I feel like I'm all bloated.  Like right here." *I begin to yank on my pre-waddle.*
Hubbs: "That isn't bloating... That's just disturbing."

At the dinner table....
Sass Monkey: "I'm having fith nuggets for dinner.  Some are round, some are square, and some are oct-o-gon." They are all, in fact, square.

While digging for cold meds....
Me:  "Ug.  I want to die.  I feel like I am dying."
Hubbs: "You can't die and just leave me here with these two..."  *looks desperate* 

During "Snuggle Time" in Sass's bed before sleepytime....
Sass Monkey:  "I have blonde hair and blue eyes, Mommy."
Me:  "You do!  And what color are my eyes?"
Sass Monkey:  "Blue."
Me:  "That's right!  And what color is my hair?"
Sass Monkey:  "White.  Cause you're old..."

Could be anytime, really.  She STILL refuses to say "Mommy".
Me:  "Can you say "brother"?"
Sprinkles:  "bwuvah".
Me:  "Good girl!  Can you say "da-da"?"
Sprinkles:  "Da-da!"
Me:  "Yay!  Can you say "Ma-ma"?"
Sprinkles:  *silence*
Hubbs:  "Can you say "Ma-ma"?"
Sprinkles:  *big toothy smile*  "Da-da!"  *Turns to look out the window into the back yard at our 2 dogs laying in the sun.* "Doggie!"
Me:  *sigh*

Picking up a plastic play phone...
Me:  "Oh hey... it's for you." *I toss the phone to Hubbs*
Hubbs:  "Ring Ring!  Hello?  Sanity? *pause* "Huh, it hung up."

Want more good time funny?  Head yonder...                                                                                                                                                                                 

... see!  We are all perfectly normal, right?  RIGHT?!?!?!  


  1. I think my comment was just deleted, so here goes again! I LOVE this--it's adorable. My fave comment is the one about bloating where your HUBs answered with "disturbing." That's hilarious. And at least your little one is TALKING, even if it is dada and doggie!

  2. No wonder the name is Sass Monkey .. "cause your old!" Knife to the heart. Can't wait till Reagan starts with those sayings!
    Ugh (rolling eyes!!)

  3. ROFLOL!!! This was great!!
    My youngest took FOREVER to say mommy! Turns out it was because I was ALWAYS there. LOL He never needed to say it. ;)

  4. I think I've gotten the same prank call as your hubs, No Sanity here... Lol, funny post, loved it :)

  5. HAhahahahaha. That little girl is yanking your chain already, refusing to say "Mama". But before you know it you'll be getting the eyeroll and "Motherrrrrr".
    Glad you joined the insanity!

  6. this is so funny, loved it! Sorry I'm late getting here...thank you for adding your wonderful blog to the Thursday Favorite Things hop. xo

  7. Is there anything more disturbing than feeling bloated? I don't think so. Your husband and my man sound like the same person :) One time he told me that I looked like I had a puffy tummy. He is still recovering from that one.
    I love the comment about the hair color too. Kids are too funny. I believe I am off to make some cool-shaped chicken nuggets :)
    Really cute post!
