Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 12 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.
Had my first big adventure by myself since we got here 6 months ago……Took Shan to the airport. No worries getting there, she drove. Getting home? Well, let’s just say that I toured a very nice area of homes 3 times. Would be a great place for a growing family and hey, it’s close to the airport. Had some great shopping too.
Shan left me her van while she is out of town this week. I thought I’d be a good Mom and vacuum it out for her and run it through the car wash. When I went to pick up the two youngest Grands, the youngest gets in the front seat because it’s his month for shotgun.
“Grams, did you clean this thing out?”
“Yep I did. Thought I’d help Mom out.”
“Because it needed it and a clean car is a happy car.”
“WHO told you that? I’ve never heard of such a thing. That’s silly.”
“My Daddy told me that all my life. He always said that a clean car is a happy car and it runs better when it’s happy.”
“Well, a dirty car is happier. I need a dirty car.”
What? Why would you want a dirty car? Don’t you like thinks nice and tidy?”
“Grams, I am a dirty man, I need a dirty car to be happy.”
We get back to the house and they are having their after school snacks. I didn’t have time to make cookies, so I got out the Oreos for them.
Girl Grand just likes the middle of the Oreos.
“Grams, do you want these?” as she hands me the cookie part.
“Sure, I’ll take them”.
“I used my teeth to scrap the middle”.
” Do you have cooties?”
About this time, the youngest pipes up
” I don’t have cooties, but I do have a deadly disease”.
Before we can ask him what it is, he tells us
” I have DEADLY GAS. I can fart for a solid hour at a time”.
Girl Grand “I am telling Dad how rude you are being. That’s gross.”
AJ: “ Who do you think taught me to do that?”
Yeah, so I didn’t have any boys, just one girl, so this fascination with farting is new to me. I just don’t know what to make of it all. But I’m having fun figuring it out……….
Headed to the store with all of the Grands in tow. From the backseat, I hear the Eldest Grand say
“AJ, what the heck are you doing?”
I look over and see he has his shirt off. No biggie there, he does that. He always puts it back on before we head into where ever we are going.
Then I notice he is stroking his armpit and meowing. Yep he is. Promise. You can’t make this stuff up.
Me: “AJ what are you doing and why are you doing it?“
“This is my kitty and he needs attention. Hear how he is purring, he’s glad I’m home from school.“
Lord help us all. This kid keeps us all on our toes. Can’t wait to see what career he decides on. I hope it’s something where he gets to use his imagination on a daily basis.
Grab a cup and go see what everyone else has going on this month!
