Tirzah's rules

Tirzah’s Rules

If it is on, I must turn it off.

If it is off, I must turn it on.

If it is folded, I must unfold it.

If it is closed, it must be opened.

If it does not open, I will exercise my freedom of screech.

If it is a pen, it must write on every blank page in Mummy’s diary.

If it is full, it will be more interesting emptied.

If it is empty, it will be more interesting full.

If it has a flat surface, it must be banged upon.

If it is stroller, it must be for my dolly not for me and must be pushed by me instead of by Mummy.

If Mummy's hands are full, I must be carried.

If Mummy is in a hurry and wants to carry me, I must walk by myself.

If it has buttons, they must be pressed.

If it is a drawer, it must be pulled open.

If it is a phone, I must talk on it.

If it is shoes, I will protest about wearing them even though I liked wearing them yesterday.

If I like it, it's mine.

If it's in my hand, it's mine.

If I can take it from you, it's mine.

If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.

If it looks just like mine, it's mine.

If I think it's mine, it's mine.

(Yes, I have been struggling a lot lately with my toddler who just wants to rule the world.)
