Summer House Rules

I decided to post house rules last week to kick off our summer. I really wanted to make sure we have a way to control the often out-of-control screen time that the kids can get themselves into. So, I put these together, with their buy in!

It hasn't taken long for the boys to try and figure out a workaround. Surprisingly, Callum is the main leader in this category. Last week, he told me he was going to skip #4 as his pass due to summer camp. I okay'd it and within seconds he said, I've also completed #3 since my summer camp was several hours of ceramics. Damn it!!

This morning, he came to me to show me a few drawings he had worked on, and said Mom, I spent 30 minutes working on these sketches. Let me show you....

I said those are great!! He then said, Oh btw - I worked on them outside in the backyard, so I've spent 30 minutes outside too! 🤣🤣🤣
