The Rules of a Toddler


We have had a toddler in our house now for most of our parenting years.

I found this write up and thought it was quite accurate:)

If it is on, I must turn it off.
If it is off, I must turn it on.

If it is folded, I must unfold it.


If it is high, it must be reached.

If it is pointed, it must be run with at top speed.

If it is plugged, it must be unplugged.
If it is unplugged, it must be plugged.

If it is not trash, it must be thrown away.
If it is in the trash, it must be removed, inspected, and thrown on the floor.

If it is closed, it must be opened.
If it is open, it must be closed.

If it is a pencil, it must write on the refrigerator, book, or table.

If it is full, it will be more interesting emptied.
If it is empty, it will be more interesting full.

If it has a flat surface, it must be banged upon.


If Mommy's hands are full, I must be carried.

If it is paper, it must be torn.

If it has buttons, they must be pressed.


If it is toilet paper, it must be unrolled.


If it is a Kleenex box it must be emptied.

If it is a drawer, it must be pulled upon.

If it is a phone, I must talk to it.

If it is a bug, it must be swallowed.

If it is dry, it must be made wet with drool, milk, or toilet water.


If it is Mommy, it must be hugged.
