Do you have secret “Mom rules” that no one else in your house knows about, but you’re continuously annoyed that they’re always getting broken?
Like, dishes that can go in the dishwasher go on the counter next to the sink. Dishes that have to be washed by hand go in the sink. That way I don’t have to dig through a pile of disgusting dishes when I load the dishwasher. It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
Why don’t THEY get it?
Or, if there are two gallons of milk in the fridge, the one that’s open always goes in front of the unopened one. Even if you need to rearrange everything else on the shelf to accomplish it. That way there isn’t any confusion, and we don’t end up with two open gallons of milk.
Come on people! Work with me here!
Finally, the small sofa pillows go on the smaller love seat. The bigger sofa pillows go on bigger sofa. Like goes with like. See how that works? And under no circumstances do they go on the chair!
Good grief, this isn’t that hard.
What are your unspoken “Mom rules?”
