Rules of the House

I'm an only child. I am a girl. The rules of the house when I was growing up were a bit different the the rules I find myself making around the boy filled Cyberbones household.


House Rule #9422 If you are not at the beach or a swimming pool you must wear a shirt.

Could someone explain to me why little boys feel the need to run around all flipping day long with their scrawny little plucked chicken chests hanging out? When I was a teenager I thought guys ran around shirtless to impress girls with their manliness. Well I'm telling you I am the only girl in this house and I'm not impressed. Put some clothes on already!

My oldest would run around in just his underwear all the time except for my nagging. I've actually caught him outside playing basketball at 7 in the morning practically naked. I guess its a good thing we live in a penitentiary. But really, boys are weird.

My boys have at various times shown up to the dinner table wearing only underwear, or underwear and a t-shirt -no pants, or pants -no shirt or underwear -it was announced and to the person who taught a 6 year old the phrase 'free-balling it" NOT FUNNY!

Also one boy inexplicable shows up in the living room every night still wet from the bath clutching, not wearing, a towel, underwear and occasionally pi's. What is so wrong with getting dressed in the bathroom or bedroom? Boys are very very strange.

It's only been in the last year that the streaking has ended in our house ;) at least it has usually been confined to inside. It didn't bother me much though... I'm from Florida and running around with as little on as you can was perfectly normal. I remember taking our kids there for the first time (after living several years in Cairo) and my kid takes one look around and asks "why is everyone naked?"

it's because you have all one sex. the male/female mix in our house keeps everyone's clothes on...for the most part. ;o)

I just don't understand boys!

Not only do they like to run around naked, they like to talk about butts and tooting and other bodily functions...and when any of the above happen...they laugh hysterically! Boys never grow up either! What they do as little boys they still do as grown men (burping/tooting/playing with their stuff)...seriously guys...

*LOL*

The summer I met Hubby, I stayed with his aunt for a few weeks. . . And saw ALL the old family photos. I swear, he wasn't wearing a shirt in a single one of them!

My boys are the same. Rarely in shirts if they can help it.
