This month, my Fly on the Wall post has this theme:
All the answers you shouldn’t need to know:

No, if you call me on my cell when I’m driving back from the store because you thought of something you want, I will not turn around and go back and get it.

No, I did not buy myself a birthday card for you to give to me.
No, I won’t go back out and get one.

Yes, you do need to slam the door that hard every time you leave the house. How will I know you’ve gone if a picture doesn’t fall off of the wall?

No, I don’t want you sticking stickers onto your bedroom door. Just like I didn’t want you sticking those other 150 stickers to your bedroom door.

No, I don’t know where your (insert item here) is.

No, I didn’t buy more (insert item here) since you didn’t tell me it was gone.

Yes, the car will stop running if you don’t put gas in it from time to time.

Yes, you have to stop at that stop sign EVERY time.

No, I don’t believe you got a bad grade because your teacher is a jerk.

No, I don’t believe you were marked late for school because your teacher didn’t see you sitting there.

No, I don’t think you should play the odds and answer “C” to everything on your multiple choice test.
Yes, you do have something to lose.

Yes, I did make dinner again tonight.

Yes, that food on the plate sitting in front of you is what's for dinner.

No, you can’t trade your vegetable for a fruit snack, I don’t care if it has fruit in the name.

No, you shouldn’t wear a sweat shirt and sneakers out in a snowstorm, but we both know that’s not going to stop you.

No, when I said to wear a ski hat when you go out in the snow I didn’t mean a baseball cap.

No, after having done the laundry today I certainly will not start the machine again to wash just the pair of socks you wore today because they’re the only pair you have left.
No, you can’t either.

No, your bedroom floor is not an extension of your closet.

Yes, I do think that’s too loud.

Yes, it’s still too loud.

No, leaving it that loud and using headphones isn’t an option.

3 TBSP butter, softened and mixed with 1/2 tsp garlic powder
approximately 20 slices of pepperoni
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
Grated Parmesan

Directions:
*Spray a piece of plastic wrap with no-stick spray. Wrap the frozen bread dough in the plastic wrap . Allow to just defrost but don’t let it rise.
*Spray a loaf pan with no-stick spray.
*Remove dough from plastic wrap and roll out until it’s just a little longer than the length of your loaf pan, and twice the width.
*Gently spread 2 TBSP of the softened garlic butter onto the dough.
*Spread out the pepperoni slices over the butter. Then sprinkle with the mozzarella , then the parmesan.
*Fold the sides in just slightly, then roll up the dough.
*Place the loaf, seam side down, in your loaf pan, cover with the plastic wrap and set aside to rise (should take approximately 4 – 5 hours).

  1. You've obviously met my son Jack, because every one of these comments is a daily mantra in my house. Next time I'll just have Jack read your blog post to save me from having to repeat these things! Love this--totally relatable.

  2. Heaven's I get frustrated with the, "Did you buy what I needed?" Even though I didn't tell you I needed it till you got home from the store... :/

    1. I guess we should stop telling our kids that Mom knows everything. They end up expecting Mom to know everything!

  4. I adore you and this post. I must have said half of hose things just this week. Al threw in her work pants at the last minute and left in a Chapstick and a pen in her pockets. Ugh! The other child wears shorts all year. Thanks for the laughs

    1. Yes, believe me, you can wait for the car stuff. Car stuff is responsible for most of the white hairs I pull out.

  12. First off, that pepperoni roll looks amazing! I bet my husband would propose again if I made it (I am really untalented in the kitchen). Well, if I made it right ;) Please tell me your son didnt really ask you if you got your own card for you from him. I cant get enough of your boys antics. Thanks again for including me in this round, I loved participating! Sorry for the link mix up too! Thanks to whoever spotted it!!!

    1. Yeah, my boys don't really get the "thinking ahead" thing. . . still. Don't worry about the link thing, just a bump in the road, glad it got fixed before we posted.

  16. And there I was thinking I was the only one using some of the crazy sentences throughout my life. It just goes to show how normal I really am. Thank God. Great post as usual.

    1. It's nice to feel normal every now and then. Especially as we're saying some pretty strange things!

    2. Kids think we are stupid and I don't understand why they would think that. I mean, I get their name right after the second or third time guaranteed. But I digress. I got the same excuse this week. I was there but the teacher didn't see me sitting there. Really? Okay, sweetheart, I won't be calling school monday to check on this situation. Don't worry.

    3. LOL, I love when people get me, and I love knowing I'm not alone in some of this crazyness!

  17. OMG! Why in the hell do they put those stickers on the bedroom door, closet door, etc? So irritating. And NO! I will not wash that 1 missing item for you. Funny...I don't have time for all that! I swear we live in the same house. LOL <-- not really!

    1. I bet most Moms have said at least one of the above. Most probably say a few regularly. So, I guess, in a sense we all live in the same house!
