Hi there mamas,<br><br>
My 3-yr old son had his best pal over the other day and they were playing on the porch/backyard. I figured, perfect place for those goofy rowdy boys--there aren't any rules out there except staying within the gate! Within an hour I realized we do have rules there:<br><br>
No pouring a bucket of water on the cat<br>
No painting the dining room window with mud<br>
No wacking the porch furniture with beams<br><br>
:LOL<br><br>
Have you found yourself spouting any rules you never quite expected were necessary? I thought it might be fun to share'em!<br><br>

I can't think of any weird rules we have.... I'm sure they exist, but nothing's coming to mind right now.<br><br>
My neighbor has a "no whistling" rule in her house. The sound of someone whistling is like nails on a chalkboard to her. My son plays with her daughter, and both of my kids are big whistlers... so when my son is over there he gets lots of "reminders." :LOL

Don't drink from the dog dish<br><br>
(My 7yo step-daughter likes to pretend to be a dog. Sometimes she takes it too far.)

I am one with the no whistling rule. I have fibromyalgia. One problem with it is, I have a sensetivity to lots of light, sound & touch. So I like it darker & not so noisy. Otherwise it is like messing up the wires in my brain & I go crazy. Twice as bad if I have a migraine.

OMG... I have actually said "Wipe your snot on you OWN shirt!" My best buddy here and I laugh about this all the time, but I am drawing a blank right now. I will try to remember some and post again.

Mine are backyard rules.....<br><br>
No building a ramp to help the dogs jump over the wall onto the street.<br><br>
No greasing the propane tank. (dogs stand on tank to try and jump over wall to get out of yard, kids think it's funny to grease it up so the dogs fall off).<br><br><br>
Inside rules...<br>
Please pick your own nose, not your friends.<br>
If you sneeze in your hands go wash them, don't wipe them on my new sofa.<br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Don't eat all the kitty treats ~ DS LOVES those crunchy cat treats that come in a little bag and will eat the entire bag if he gets his mitts on them! DH jokes that it gives him shiny hair and clean teeth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">.

The Powerpuff Girls wooden block race must be cleared from the kitchen floor before suppertime.<br><br>
The back of the futon is not a balance beam. It's not the uneven bars either.<br><br>
No hula hooping over your brother's head while he's doing his algebra.
