1. We will always say the rosary upon getting in the car for the first time in a given day...partly because it's a good use of our time in the car and partly because it guarantees me 15 minutes of peace and relative quiet.
2. If you use your rosary as a lasso on the person sitting in front of you, or as a leash for your dinosaur, I will confiscate the rosary and you will be reduced to counting on your fingers.
3. I will not, I repeat, WILL NOT mediate arguments about who won the "punch buggy, no punch backs". Even if you did say the addendum, "to infinity, 1,2,3 no take backs" and the other person did not.
4. I am removing the 70's box set from the car and replacing it with selections from our music appreciation pieces for the school year....partly because it's a good use of our time in the car and partly because I'm a little unnerved with hearing my kids sing these songs. There are certain songs that you don't think are too bad until you hear them come out of your kids' mouths. It was bad enough when Jack learned how to sing "Brick House". It was really bad enough when Kain learned the "Bertha Butt Boogie". But listening to Maria singing "we made love in my Chevy van and that's all right with me" was the last straw. They have been officially retired.
