<p>I know every so often this topic pops up with very funny things....I must add.  My children are 16, 12, and 10.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>"No, you cannot time each other escaping duct tape." </p>
<p> </p>
<p>"No you cannot duct tape each other."  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>"No using tape or any sort of adhesive on each other."  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Why did you duct tape your sister?"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>"Why did you let them duct tape you?"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>************</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I thought we were the phase if they were quite go check on them.  The only upside to this was they thought and put long sleeves and did it over pants.  No duct tape touched any skin. <img alt="whistling.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/whistling.gif">  I must ad all parties were willing participants. </p>

<p>Duct tape is awesome! I stumbled on this photo while researching duct tape and its uses, and I thought it was amusing, as the baby is obviously content. But just now I googled "duct tape baby wall", and found photos of terrible abuse, and parents jailed...<span><img alt="greensad.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"> How awful...</span></p>

<p>DH:  But I just vacuumed the bed yesterday!  (Said after kids brought the homemade craft, that was completely covered in glitter, into bed with them....for the second time).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ME: Do not lick the car!  (Said after I caught Dd with her tongue out to taste the road salt/grime that had accumulated on the side of the car door).</p>

I have seen that picture and other photos of kids duct tape....it makes me sad.  Even though this child doesn't look upset and it is sad. My kids are older and skimming together.  I just <img alt="ROTFLMAO.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif">  <img alt="shrug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/shrug.gif"> some days.  </p>

<p>When I had carpal tunnel surgery, my XH would put a ziplock bag over my arm to protect the wrapping and stitches, then duct tape it to my arm when I would shower.  It never pulled out any of my arm hair or harmed my skin.  It didn't hurt at all to take it off.  Just an FYI if anyone finds their kids duct taping each other.  <span><img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif">  It was probably generic duct tape though, not sure if that makes a difference.</span></p>

<p>this rule would be for my mom "if you ever watch my kids and they drop their tooth brush in the toilet, just throw it away...". we were visiting a few weeks ago and my niece dropped hers in, my mom told her to just wash it off in the kitchen sink..... Yuck! </p>

<p>I never thought I would have to answer such detailed questions about where it is okay and not okay to pee, or where you can or cannot be naked.</p>

<p>I've seen this pic before. It actually doesn't bother me. I totally get the feeling there was some discussion about people saying they'll duct tape a baby to a wall, and someone said, "hey - let's try that", and they did. I strongly suspect that dd2 would laugh her head off if we did that with her, and if we were to try it, and she <em>didn't</em> laugh her head off, we'd stop. And, once you'd done it, of course, you'd want a pic! I doubly think this, because of the fact that they taped the stuffie beside her. This is a total photo-op pic.<br>

<p>Don't lick the ant hill.</p>
<p>If you put a gumball in your undies to pretend you have a penis, then no, you cannot eat the gumball.</p>
<p>No, DDs, you may not take pictures of each others' butts.</p>
<p>Please don't lick the fossilized ball of dinosaur poop at the museum (but I guess you can smell it if no one is looking)</p>
<p>Coloring in your armpits so it's a surprise for mom when we go to swim lessons is NOT cool.</p>
<p>Chewing up your veggies and then spitting them in the trash is not considered "eating."</p>
<p>Don't fart on me.</p>

<p> Um, seriously?  How much nutritional difference is there and why are we eating this garbage in the first place?  <img alt="eyesroll.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif"></p>

<p>DS: You cannot live on banana's. I know you see them but you've already eaten three.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>DH: You can not feed the baby cookies for breakfast. I know they are gluten free and he wanted them. Eggs, eggs are a good breakfast food.</p>

<p>Ours' is less of a don't lick the car rule and more of a don't rub your entire body and face all of the car rule.  Honestly, I think I would prefer tongue-only contact over full body contact.</p>
