I generally try not to invent rules for the boy when I'm upset about something he's done, as that tends to lead to overly punitive and specific rules like no more spumoni on Tuesdays. That said, I stand by last night's new rule: if you want to sleep upside down with your feet on the pillow, you need to go do that in your own bed, not mine.

Also when Mommy says "ow, you kicked me in the face," you are not allowed to laugh.

Those seem reasonable.

Waving at you sympathetically from the house in which one of the rules is "No comedy routines at the table."

Hey, as long as you can have spumoni every other day, is it such a hardship to lose it on Tuesdays? Overly specific beats "grounded til you're 30" any day :D

Sympathies; our cats have started chasing each other around at night, bouncing off the walls, the sleeping people, and the tall piles of Stuff that inhabits our space, muttering all the while. I should start keeping a spray bottle next to my pillow.

My cats used to leap up onto the windowsill and slam into the window, in my old apartment, which freaked Mike out entirely as he'd never lived with cats before meeting me. One morning when they were sleeping he ran around in circles and hollered to startle them awake and then said "how do you like it?"

I kind of want to hear more about "no more spumoni on Tuesdays".

And really, you are a wise and benevolent Mommy.

That's a hypothetical rule, but we mostly are a spumoni & neapolitan-free household anyway, because of my husband totally cheating on the "eat all the flavors at the same rate" rule.

Ooh, the no laughing rule, a hard one to enforce but nonetheless important.

I think we're about to implement a "swallow all your food before leaving the table" rule. I spent a good hour watching April chew her cud last night...

I make him show me his empty mouth before he can get down from the table, which has resulted in him pointing into his empty mouth any time a discussion of food-eating or medicine-taking comes up. Also in wanting to examine the interior of my mouth when I'm done eating. sigh.
