I therefore thought it was only fitting to write my gorgeous 2 year old his own personal set of rules that he appears to have created.
If I like it, it's "MINE!!!!"
If I don't like it but my brother shows some interest in it, it is "MINE!!!!!"
If toys are in a box, not only should the box be emptied but its contents should be spread as far as possible around the house.
If it is near a toilet then it should be put down a toilet.
If Mummy picks me up in a pubic place then I must scream "Help! Help!" as loud as possible, followed by a much quieter "I'm stuck!"
If someone is eating then they should share their food. I will encourage them to do this by invading their personal space and staring at their food until they offer me some.
If there is a puddle I must jump in it.
If it can be climbed on and ridden like a horse then it must be.
If I'm in a bath I must create a tidal wave.
If there's a chance to bundle my brothers I must take it.
I will protest loudly at the wearing of socks. If Mummy succeeds in getting socks on me I must pull them off at the first available opportunity.
I will deny all knowledge that I have done a poo.
If Mummy tries to dress me I will squirm and shout and protest against the restrictions of clothes.
If I can make clothes dirty so that they will be removed, I will.
If it's food I will eat it, if it's not food I will eat it.
If I am told it is food that I wont like (curry, wasabi peas for example) I will definitely eat it and show no fear to my parents.
I will appear "cute" to all those around me so they look down at my Mummy as being unfair when she says things like this set of rules about me.
