Of course we love our kids, but why do they do those crazy behaviors that make zero amount of sense? Welcome to Part 3 of The Child’s Code, which I believe is a secret book that all kids receive at birth explaining the most annoying behaviors they can perform. I think this is the only way they all manage to irritate their parents in the same ways. Perhaps if we know their tricks, we can be one step ahead of them! Heh heh. If you missed numbers 1-10, be sure to check out Parts 1 and 2.
11.) When your mom asks you to go get your siblings for dinner, don’t actually move to go get them. Stand six inches from her, and yell at the top of your lungs for them. When she gives you the “well, I could have done that” look, just smile and look cute.
12.) Fresh play-doh + clean carpeting = big time mashing fun!
13.) Wherever you walk, spin both arms around quickly like propellers. Bonus points if you knock a picture off the wall.
14.) If you have a new nail polish handy, it is probably a good time to paint a beautiful picture on the kitchen floor.
15.) Pick a kid movie that is very annoying to your parents (Little Einsteins or Dragon Tales are good options) and ask to see it 4,398 consecutive times.
Have your kids performed any behaviors that are probably in The Child’s Code? Share in the comments, and I may use them in a future post! 🙂

LOL, yes, my non fiction brain was very satisfied! 🙂
These are so funny! Number 15 is an almost daily occurrence at my house! We’ve gone from watching Clifford the Big Red Dog 1000 times a week to watching Ninjago or something Lego related 1000 times a week. I guess it could be worse, we could be stuck watching Barney…. ((shudder))!
Glad you enjoyed the posts. They are all based in reality. 🙂

When your parents ask "who made this mess?" or "who left the door open?". Always make sure to rush with either of these top answers….."I don't know" Or "not me". It will drive your parents insane……they will begin to believe (after many times) that they have 2 other children with these said names 😉 Joni Ishmael
