As Mom, I have the ability, nay, the right to make up laws the family must follow. These can, and will, change at whim. This law, however, has been around since the dawn of our marriage, well before children and obligations and stress:
Law 2 section 1.2 reads as such:
If the sun is streaming in to the room and makes [watching tv] [being on the computer] [playing video games] too difficult, it is time to go outside.
Don’t break law #2 this weekend, kids. You don’t want to know Law #3.
Go forth and enjoy!

Oh I like this law a lot. I think I’m going to adopt this from now on.

I like how you think.
Except, here in NorCal, it would mean we’d never get any screen time. And that would make this Mama go insane, and rather quickly at that.

I guess it’s because here in Seattle we have seventeen and a half days a year of sun so people call in sick when it’s sunny.
I’m working today, though. Deadlines are deadlines.

But what if you’ve already been outside and the kids are trying to kill you by being crazy active and all you want is a little time on Twitter to chill while the kids are safely contained in the house? What if you are so tired you wish you were dead? Do I still have to go outside? ok, fine. I’d better put on more sunscreen….

Go have fun in the sun girlfriend.
I like that rule and the one that says if there is beer in the fridge you must drink it.

I too make up these rules and laws of the house. Like my infamous McDonald’s ban. Yet, I have not ability to enforce them. Please share secrets on making people do as I say. I am after all, MOM!
