What is your oddest rule? - Page 4

post #61 of 177
You may not touch the cats butt.

Its not such a problem anymore, now that we are over the intense potty learning stage - but - you may not touch your sister with your penis.

Don't drink the tub water!

(I have started to take a sippy of water into the bathroom with us at bathtime so I can stem the ingestion of tub water. Which she likes to pee in, thankyouverymuch.)

OMG! I thought we were the only ones to call bath water dirty butt water! We have that rule, too, I just didn't think it was weird enough to mention compared to wearing the cat on their heads!

No putting the frankenbaby in other peoples beds when they are sleeping. It scares the crap outta them when they wake up at 3 am staring it in the eye.

That one was created this morning after I nearly had a heart attack at 3 in the morning because DD did that to me.

Another recent addition to our rule list:

If Skippy can't do it, neither can you.

This one came about because DH found The 213 things Skippy is no longer allowed to do in the US Army list on the internet and decided that letting a sock puppet take over his chores was a great way to get out of them. (Among a few others)

Yes, adults have rules too

We have the undies at the table rule as well. (But mostly because I don't clean the chairs often and they're gross.)

"No, you may not check my butt for paper." She likes to clench her butt when I'm wiping so now she thinks toilet paper sticks in everyone's butt. :

Only food bigger than my thumb goes into plastic bags for the girls to run around with and eat out of. My youngest likes to shove food up her nose, so now we have a minimum size so it won't fit up her nose. Strangely enough it's irritating to try and get stuff out of her nose while she's screaming "there's something up my nose, there's something up my nose" at the top of her lungs. Um ... yeah, you put it up there.... :

So did I.

Yeah,and in our house the no cat on the head rule would have to be for the cat.He is constantly trying to lay on my daughter's head.Maybe your kids should come over and "try him on".

Yeah, the sippy wouldn't have worked for me and my sister. I still remember the day we were having a good old time playing in and drinking the tub water, and then we were like "wait a sec - we peed in this water! EEW!!!!!".
The good news is, it hasn't killed anyone yet. Although now that I'm the mom - YUCK!

the 2 yo girl I babysit CONSTANTLY has her hands down her pants -- on her butt, not scratching or anything, that's just where she likes to rest her hand... so... if you put your hands down your pants, you need to wash them before doing anything else!

also, undies always... everywhere/anywhere... not cause I"m prudish, but becasue I know they don't always wipe too good -- yick!

cat food is not for children...

do NOT jump on people or expect people to catch you if they don't know you're coming!!!

mommy is NOT, I repeat NOT a jungle gym...

I think I love you. I have had occasion to completely understand this rule.

For the 3 year old:

Nudity is fine unless we are:

a) expecting company
b) going out in public
c) eating a meal together at the table

In these 3 circumstances one must at least put on underwear.

We don't talk about Mommy's vagina in public.

For the 13 year old:

If your little brother wants to give you an imaginary apple (pizza, glass of juice, balloon...), please take it so I don't have to listen to him cry.
