The following list is not all-inclusive and will most certainly be added to as summer continues:
1.) If you are climbing the tree in the backyard and I can look you in the eye from the second floor window, you are too high.
2.) Never again fill your cup from the ice dispenser with so much ice that it backs up, causing the next person who gets a drink to be bombarded with 50 cups of ice.
3.) If your baby sister is sleeping, do not stick your face in front of her and yell, “Are you sleeping? Are you???”
4.) Before going in any body of water, check with me. Shopping mall fountains, certain creeks, sewers, and puddles are not for swimming. Do not repeat last week’s indiscretion of climbing into the decorative pond at the house of someone kind enough to invite us over for a barbeque. It’s rude.
5.) Anything you take apart because “I just wanted to see how it works” must be pre-approved by me or have a total cost of less than $10 and belong to you in the first place.
6.) No bleeding on my stuff. If you need a band-aid, stay outside and I’ll come to you.
