House Rules

All the Mommies seemed to like the club I'm about to drop on my children's head so I figured I'd share our House Rules with you...Reminders will be happening today and I'm sure I will feel the love.

Your room will be clean and chores done before you
head out for the day/to play

Dishes are not to be left in the sink - rinse and put in
dishwasher (if dishwasher is full, empty it)

You will keep all your homework current and grades
no lower than B/Cs

Pick up after yourself

No one in the house without Mom or Dena Present

No Sleepovers without at least 24 hour notice

An adult should know where you are going and when you
plan to return

If you turn it on, turn it off.

If you break it, admit it.

If you can't fix it, call in someone who can.

If you borrow it, return it.

If you value it, take care of it.

If you make a mess, clean it up.

If you move it, put it back.

If it belongs to someone else and you want to use it,
get permission

If you don't know how to operate it, leave it alone.

If it's none of your business don’t ask questions

Remember, you are responsible for your friends
behavior in their presence...

Exercise your choices


  1. Most of those rules can be applied to any household-children present or not.

  2. Mel you sooo right...hence my delay in enforcing them perhaps. ;)
