Rules of the Visit

As you know, I was in Boston visiting my dear cousin Lisa.  We were both looking forward to the time together.




I also look forward to seeing her boy, Jacob, who always gives up his room when I come to stay.  He doesn't complain about this act of hospitality but I know it's still displacing for him.

I noticed that he has posted rules on his bedroom door since the last time I was there.  I shall endeavor to obey.


I am indeed older than three, though some may question whether this applies to chronology or maturity.  I also don't smoke.  So I should be ok here...


I have to play with Jacob?  Not a problem.  I was hoping to do so.  We enjoyed a Harry Potter board game constructed from Legos.  I never saw a Lego board game before.  It was very clever. We did indeed have fun....and it was peaceful.  Ok, so I've got these rules covered.  I was feeling good about this.


Uh-oh, I hope this isn't a blanket rule for all moms!  I don't want those skulls coming after me in the dark!  I was a bit concerned.  I guess it was unnecessary though since I made it back alive and unmolested by scary skulls.

More posts to come on the fun and mayhem had in the greater Boston area.  If you really can't wait to hear about the time with Suldog and HIS WIFE feel free to get a sneak preview over at his place.

I had totally forgotten about my kids and their room signs. Fun stuff! Glad you had a wonderful visit with cousin and Suldog!

Sounds like a great time. But I'm a bit surprised there wasn't a "No Girls" sign there too!

I don't know that kid, but I definitely like him. And I envy you meeting up with Suldog again.

So. . . Jacob gets the guest room, which only has a door, but no walls or ceiling (and no bed or furniture, except maybe for some rocks, as far as I can tell)?

I don't know what the deal is with the Legos these days. 8M got a Star Wars Lego video game - it's a regular video game, but all the characters are Lego versions of Star Wars characters, and their spaceships, etc, are all 'made of' Legos. . . So, you don't even need Legos to play with Legos, I guess. . .

Glad you had a great time in Bahston. . .

Okay, so now I want to hear your side of the story of the visit with Suldog

It sounds like you had a great time on your visit! I wanted to let you know that I am re-joining the blog community on my old blog "A Breazy Life." I hope to see you there!

"Three or older to enter."

A seriously wise rule that I need to adapt at my house for my room. I would raise the age limit to 17 to prevent my son from coming inside to ask for something while I am trying to sleep.

I had some aunts that I liked more than others. I expect you're on Jacob's list of favorites.

That's a neat rock with the doorway cutout.

There's still a sign up in our basement that says "No Girls Allowed," made by my son and his buddies.
