An Edit

The two little girls who spend a lot of time here aren't really the most mannered of girls.  We've had to set up a couple of rules in order for me to keep my sanity.
1) If you lie to me you go straight home
2) If you lie to your mom while I can hear it (ie while you are screaming at her from my balcony) you go straight home
3) You can't just come over looking for snacks and something fun to do.  If we're doing something we will call and invite you over.

and last but not least, this gem I found on Pinterest

Last week Claire was talking to me and said, "no yelling unless there is a fire {I agreed, a long pause ensued} or monsters.  You can yell if there are monsters too."

Last night she added one last amendment.  So now our rule is,

No yelling in the home unless there is a fire,
Or monsters,
Or dinosaurs.

Seems fair.


  1. I think those are some great rules. And monsters, dinosaurs, and fire and perfectly good reasons to yell. I hope things with the girls next door work out. Hopefully when school starts again things will get less crazy.

  2. I LOVE this blog and the way you think and live your life. You are a star!
