We have rules.
1. Be kind
2. Show love
3. Tell the truth
Let's just say one little person is having more trouble with that third one than others.
We have wrestling rules:
1. No hands to the face
2. No elbows or knees
3. No choking
4. Mom is a safe place
Pawpaw's rule: rocks stay in the driveway. No exceptions.
Nonnie has no rules.
Unc's rule is that underwear must be worn at all times.
No one sits on my lap or touches me while I eat.
Dad has tons of rules.
Dogs' rule: if they can get it, then they can eat it.
John Hinton's rule: If he wants it, then it is his favorite and he will take it by force.
Sam's rule: Wear your opponent down with endless crying, whining, pointing and pinching.
Mom's new rule: The pinchee may pinch the pincher back. Seriously, he pinches all the time. I'm all about a little vigilante justice.
But maybe we need more rules:
It is obvious from these pictures and my recent stance on pinching that I have lost control and joined in the madness.
