I have been a Mom for almost 16 years now. I really thought that I had seen and heard everything!
Recently, however, I have found myself uttering (sometimes at very high volume) the strangest things and being forced to create new family rules.
Let me give you an example- Sunday, right after Church, we had to make a new family rule….
“No break-dance head spins in the living room especially while wearing your church clothes.” I thought that was a common sense thing, but apparently not.
Another is –
“No fart wars in the house…or out of the house. ever. I Mean It!” Boys are really strange animals.
“No peeing in the garbage can next to the toilet just because you can.” ew.
I could go on for hours, but I’ll spare you.
In the last 15 minutes I have had to say-
“Stop making out with the dog!”
“Get your face out of the bowl.”
“Don’t hold there.”
“What is that smell?”
