Katherine and I met recently through twitter and discovered that in addition to both having four children, we’re kindred spirits on many levels. This is her first post on my blog (hopefully not the last) and also the first in a new regular feature: My 5 Rules. This is a lady who loves to laugh and share the crazy in her day – be sure to follow her and her crew on twitter @grass_stains .
Five Rules I Never Knew I Needed To Establish
1. Don’t climb the walls. And if you do, stop climbing after you make the first hole.
2. Close doors after you open them. Yes, that one. Yes, that one too. AND THAT ONE.
3. Piggyback rides are limited to one rider.
4. Do not drop your 2-year-old sister from a height of four feet.
5. DO NOT teach your 2-year-old sister to trust-fall. BUT IF YOU DO, do it on a bed.
Go forth and check out Katherine and all her internet wonderfulness.

Thanks, Amanda! Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
We also have 4 kids ages 2-11. Great rules.
Nice to meet you, WhatTheMom. 🙂 I feel like we are partners in crime, you and I, with our children in such similar stages in life!
I read both blogs….Most of the time I just don’t know what to say.
Fantastic. Job well done, then.
Always great to hear from you, Larry! Even if you’re just saying that you don’t know what to say. A comment is a comment. Ha!
I grew up in a family with four kids. None of those pictures were of shattered glass, so your kids are better behaved than we were. Good job!
No shattered glass YET, Ricky Bobby, but I feel like you just jinxed me. So thanks for that.
Kat…the video…ohmigosh. Priceless! Love your kids!! 🙂
Thanks, Tracey! I’m hoping no one reports me to DHR for that video. Ha!
OH MY WORD! I was freaking out! Clearly I need to relax a bit.
What a great video! I love how she just hurls herself backward without a thought about whether or not he’ll catch her. So great. And “are you ok…are you sure you’re ok?” then DROP! Too cute.
