I am realizing that we have some weird rules in our house. Most families have rules for their kids like, "Don't jump on the furniture", or "Wash your hands before dinner". You know, things that make sense.
In our house, our rules are much more specific. We have to be. These kids are creative, and they try to out think us at every turn.
You want some examples? Hmmm...let's see.
Well, for starters, we have, "No Candy Canes in the Bathtub",
And "No Stockpiling Water Balloons in Your Bedroom".
There is also "No Climbing into Chicken Coops",
"No Watergun Standoffs in the Bathroom When Your Mother is Trying to Get You Out of the Water."
And "No Climbing Up the Front of the Refridgerator".
Necessary rules include "No Drawing on Your Brother"
And "No Sitting on Your Sister's Head".
I really think that I shouldn't have to say these things....but, in this house, we do. We have learned from experience, if we don't make a rule for it, it will happen. And these kids have limitless energy and creativity....
I, on the other hand, am running out of energy... ;)
