Obviously, every household requires some rules. “No hitting,” “don’t call people names,” and so on. Sometimes, though, especially with small children, you end up with some pretty crazy sounding ones.
Some of the weird rules at my house include:
“Books are not for standing on.” Isaiah opened his book and stood on it in the middle of the room, so this rule was created.
“Books are not for chewing on.” This rule was aimed at Dusty, the dog, when he proceeded to taste the book Isaiah was standing on.
“Cups must be put down standing up.” Isaiah likes to lay his cups sideways so that the water pours out.
“Don’t help Mama write her blog (or chat on Facebook) unless she asks.” Isaiah is fascinated by all buttons. He loves “helping” me type!
*More rules to come!*
