    I consider us an average, normal, middle-class suburban family... DH is a cop, I am, as of recently, a "stay-at-home Mom", and we have 2 adorable daughters, ages 7 & 4.

    But it just dawned on me that since we have acquired chickens, that there are times that I just have to LAUGH... I catch myself making up rules, or just uttering phrases, that I never in a MILLION YEARS would have guessed would be a part of the normal, mundane rhythm of my life!!!

    Here's a few for ya... anyone else got any??? :

    1. No chickens in the bedrooms.

    2. No beaks near faces.

    3. Why is there chicken poop on the laundry basket/futon/swingset/gameroom floor, (etc...)??

    4. No chickens in the (playschool) oven, it's just NOT RIGHT (Yes, I know she doesn't seem to mind, but MOMMY DOES!!!).

    5. The Low-calorie rice cakes are for MOMMIES not CHICKENS!!

    6. Of COURSE Daddy is the boss of the roo...! Jumped on his what?? How many times??? Oh, um, wait right here, sweetie, Mommy has to go do something...

    7. It is up to MOMMY, not the ROO, when we get out of bed in the mornings!!

    8. That's enough TV for ALL of you... Now take them outside to catch bugs or something!!

    9. ABSOLUTELY NO MORE HATCHING EGGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    (Amendment to #9... "Mommies are allowed to change their mind sometimes...")

    10. (stated several months after #9) Yes, I KNOW I said at least half of them will probably be girls, but Mommy was very, very WRONG...

    11. Go share that snack with your sister and the chickens.

    12. On Daddy's good TOOLBOX??? Seriously??!! How the heck did they get over THERE??? Go get Mommy some paper towels RIGHT AWAY...

    13. Swear words are absolutely NOT ALLOWED around here, even if another one DID crow...

    14. Go kiss the chickens goodnight.

    My "muses":
    Sami (4 yrs old) with her BFF "Flower" the Serama;
    Sami & Flower watching TV;
    Miranda (7 yrs old) with "Fendi" and "Prada" Silkies;
    and... "NO BEAKS NEAR FACES, NO BEAKS NEAR FACES!!!! Oooooooh, hang on a sec while Mommy gets the camera.." [​IMG]

    How precious! Lovely girls, feathered and non.

    Umm Around here there are a few other rules...

    Pizza is NOT for the chicken, just for you

    No she cannot sleep on your bed, I know she would like it but she has her own house

    No you may not go to the coop at 11pm..they are fine...they have heat lamps and a radio, lined drapes and comfy roosts...leave them alone

    Get that chicken off my counter

    She does not need to see what is in the refrigerator with you...stop that

    Oh and the list goes on and on and on [​IMG] Mine is going on 13 so the rules are changing constantly as she becomes more inventive
