    The Darndest Things: More Rules I Never Thought I’d Have

    December 3, 2008 by Brandy Vencel

    Every now and then I get the urge to post the ridiculous rules that childrearing has forced upon our household. Did my parents need to have crazy rules like mine? I don’t remember, but I like to think my experiences aren’t peculiar.

    Today was one of the days when I have to make a new rule. Here it is:

    Don’t lick anything that isn’t food.

    This could almost be a nevertell: The children go outside to play. When they return, Mom feels compelled to make a new rule which states that they must never lick anything that isn’t food. Why?

    But then I don’t think you really want to know.

    In other news, it was fifty degrees outside this morning so naturally the children decided this day was the day for running in the sprinklers when Mom wasn’t looking.
