New JunkFamily Rules

In the style of Common Room family rules.

  1. Babies are not allowed to climb the baby gate.
  2. Pulling out the puppy's bottom-hairs and then trying to eat them is strictly forbidden.
  3. If you pull your own hair hard enough to make you cry, Mama will comfort you, but I'm allowed to laugh at you at the same time.
  4. Do NOT try to balance one leg on the bed and one leg hanging off the side, even though the mattress is on the floor. Not even if you're holding on to the end table, too.
  5. Don't use the diaper pail to try to stand up!
  6. Toilet paper is not a toy!
  7. The kitchen trash can is not a toy basket. Please refrain from pulling "toys" out of it!
  8. You are not allowed to climb INTO the dishwasher.
  9. Nightlights should remain in the wall sockets.
  10. If you choose to pull books off the bookshelves and onto your head, please choose something lighter than a hardback copy of Les Miserables.
Why is it I feel like I'm raising my little sister? ;-)

    Yes, toilet paper trailing was such a fun thing for your sister! So was pulling Kleenex out of a box (all 160 pieces one at a time). I am not sure why I did not discover that one before they were all pulled out. I did catch the toilet paper thing early on & I learned to close bathroom doors from then on.

    Ah, young children and their disturbing fascination with trash cans and all other manner of yucky amusements. It seems all those 1-3 year olds think about is putting toys into the trash can and taking other things out... It's endless.
