DC#2 is only 13 months so we don't have too many of these yet but...

 

"We don't pee on mama's cell phone," is a new rule in our house.

We don't pee on the groceries.  

 

I had to say that a few months ago.

We don't pee in the corner of the bedroom, nor do we laugh at your brother while he's doing it

you cannot whine to Mom if the baby calls you a bad name or tells you to shut up.  YOU said it in front of him, YOU taught him it.

These are so great!

"We do not lick the cat"

"We don't let the cat lick your snack"

"Cat food is for cats, not for people"

Are some I've been saying a lot this week.

You may not rub your penis on the cabinets.

You may not rub your penis on Mama.

You may not stick your penis in Mama's belly button, no matter how hilarious you think that is.

We do not put the baby in the washing machine.

We don't put him in the dryer either.

We do not put our toys in the dogs' water bowl.

We do not put other people's toys in the dogs' water bowl.

We do not put ourselves in the dogs' water bowl.

You may not put your penis in the dogs' water bowl. I don't care if it is a boat. Stop it.

No one but DS may tickle his testicles.

We do not touch anyone's penis but our own. Not even the dogs'. I don't care if you don't have your own, it still applies.

We do not kiss Mama with tongue.

We do not kiss the baby with tongue.

We just don't kiss with tongue period until we're all grown up.

We do not throw people's shoes in the pool. We certainly do not collect and throw everyone's shoes in the pool.

Pee goes in the potty, not in bowls, not in boxes, not on the table, the doggy bed, the Mama bed, the Mama, or the Sissy.

My kids aren't toddlers, but a few recent ones that have been told to my daycare toddlers:

 

We don't hand our friends our boogers.

We don't drop kick the realtor.

 

My most favourite, and repeated so often lately that I've made a song about it - We don't eat our friends.

Oh my, this is the best thread ever LOL.
A few of our own:

We do not pick mommy's nose while nursing (or at all).
We do not take our shoes off in the carseat and place them in the cup holders.
We may not have any of Grandpa's beer, regardless of how cute we are or how big we smile.
Kitty is not a stool or a pillow.
Kitty's water fountain is not a splash pad.
We do not stick our entire arm up to our shoulder into mommy's water bottle.
The potty bowl is neither a hat nor a snack, especially while full.
We do not play with our vulva while peeing on the potty and expect a high five for a job well done before washing our hands.
We do not attempt to twist off Grandma's nose; she needs it.
Daddy's underpants do not make fashionable hats.
... and the list goes on. She's 14 months lol

Heard lately ---

 

We cannot barbecue every single thing we cook. 

No one threw away the baby's teeth. It just hasn't come out yet. Please do not look for it in the trash.

If you simply must pee outside, we don't do it in the middle of the deck or on the front step.

 

Today:  We don't buy ice cream before we go, if we're leaving the playground early because you spat on another kid.

- We don't paint with our pee (newly potty trained 2yo DD about to put her paintbrush in her potty)

- We don't put Play-doh in our butts (after showing her how to make imprints of our finger nails, hands and noses)

- We don't use Mama's toothbrush to pedicure our toenails

dd arches her pelvis to watch herself pee and then the pee arcs over the toilet seat. our bathroom always smells so fresh.

 

Oh dear me. My DD does half the things you mention here. The barfing thing is the WORST. I was crying and I was laughing so hard. I mean really? Spitting out food is so damn gross and it's DDs newest activity.

 

"we don't draw marker on the cat"

"I know it's washable but we still don't!"

"we don't eat jellybeans out of the flower beds"

"we don't touch mamas pimples because it hurts"

(yes, I get huge ones after ovulation, I'm so lucky!!!)

 

Really tho! Toddlers are strange creatures! Love em!

I've been reading this post for awhile and I finally have a great one to add :)

From 2 y/o DS yesterday:

 

" No , your penis is NOT hungry, you do not need to feed it your popcorn" 

 

I had to remember to not eat popcorn out of his bowl after this started....ewwwwwww
