Since clearly, it was my own misjudgment that has landed us here; humans acting like they were raised in the forest by wolves, I will now enumerate some of the finer points of living as a normal human being in society. You may all feel free to use any of these suggestions to help your own families. I am sorry if my list sounds harsh, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

Rules make her life
happy and orderly.
2. If I ask you to do something or tell you we are doing something or going somewhere, it is perfectly acceptable to occasionally just say "okay Mom, no problem." I honestly don't need to hear all the reasons why you don't want to do something or go somewhere. I wasn't taking a poll, I was just giving information and/or giving directions.

nothing in our house looks like that.
Please note ottoman is not
advertised with anyone's sneakers on it.
4. If you are going to the trouble of actually going into the closet where your hamper is, go the extra mile and put your dirty clothes IN the hamper, not next to it. What the F is that? You are right there!
5. When you borrow something of mine (especially without asking) and don't put it back, act sorry when I am pissed off about it. When you act indignant, like *I* am somehow the problem, that just makes me even more mad. Remove the phrase "it wasn't my fault" from your vocabulary. It is your fault. We all know it's your fault. Either be sorry or pretend to be sorry and take the crap you have coming your way and then we can all move on with our lives.

which child this is.
