The Rules

Pictures are an international language. 
And when you're  four years old,  you color pictures.
Then tape them to the front door of your house.
Dunbar House Rules, as written by Monkey
1. No Pets. (Other than Dodger and Blue.)
2. No knives, forks, or spoons. (If you eat here, the Dunbar's will provide them.)
3. No shoes in the house. (Or flips or boots.)
4. No Smoking.

and now we have a 5th Rule, No Pillows. (If you sleep here, the Dunbar's will provide them.)

Monkey thought of these all on his own. Decided how he wanted to write them out; crossed out circles, you know, "Just like the No U-turn signs on the street." 
The Rules are posted on our front door.

Now, who wants to come over for a visit?

I am impressed with his pictures and his rules. I would certainly stop by, but am partial to my own pillow!!! :D lol.
My little guy did something so similiar to this about a year ago when he was four - I dug up the post. http://secondtimemommy.blogspot.com/2009/02/chases-words-to-live-by.html
