A few years ago, someone on the delphi NFP discussion forum posted a thread about the "rules around your house".  Participants posted lists of their house rules.  Mine included "No sitting on the baby’s head". 

Now need to add a rule, this one inspired by the same child who gave us that other rule, though the incident involves a different baby:

No tying things to the baby.

Funny thing is, rules like this are almost always needed on days when everything is going well.  If the two children involved hadn’t been getting along so well today, there never would have been any getting of babies to submit to the tying-on.
