In my house the two phrases KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF & STOP TOUCHING “STUFF” are said more than
one time a day okay more like a zillion times a day. AND for more than one reason:
Keeping dad in check 😉
Kids pestering the dog.
Kids touching decorations.
Kids in the fridge.
Kids in the pantry.
Kids back in the fridge.
Keeping Dad in check 😉 (he has a long reach 🙂 )
Kids taking toys from one another. (out of one another’s mouth as well)
Kids and toilet paper. (toilet, toilet brush, tank…)
If you ever want to feel more like a Mina Bird – have a few little humans and a husband around…I feel like I repeat, repeat, and repeat….
I also find these things to be more true on days you are feeling like sitting on the couch, or are just not on top of your game. They tend to go for the goal of irritating you more on those days. Yes, they are there each day otherwise….
If your ever bored and feel like you need a good reminding of things to touch and not touch – feel free to stop by, or give me a call, an email…I aim to help. I am thinking of making a long list and painting one whole wall in my house with it. Then again – some of my kids can’t read and the jury is out on my old man following directions (well, not to mention some of his non touch items on the list might not be PG).
