2 summers ago we were heading to Dodge City to visit family for the week. And Leo had been in the precious stage of the terrible twos. So in the weeks before going we had created a list of the rules of the house. And it was a loooong list. Granted he was in a semi-violent stage (which seems to still come and go...gotta love a little boy full of a LOT of energy) we had some rules regarding those as well. I wish we hadn't packed/thrown away so much crap but I just recently put it away or else I would have taken a picture of it. It's even written in crayon because I couldn't find an actual pen. It went a little something like this...
- No hitting
- No biting
- No throwing toys
- No pulling on clothing (He seemed to pull on our clothes all the time)
- No yelling
- No kicking
- No hitting Freckles
Today the list of rules we try to follow are similar but as he's gotten older and able to express himself a little bit better we have pared down our list of rules although they still are there. Today the rules we seem to spout over and over go a little something like this...
- No yelling
- We must brush our teeth EVERY. Single. Day. (twice a day)
- Wash your hands after using the restroom.
- Put your dishes away.
- Don't hit the walls (not in anger...just when running through the house. He seems to think the walls were meant for running into.)
