Yogurt Chronicles

Magoo’s had a few problems with yogurt in his life. I didn’t realize quite how many until a couple of days ago when he asked for some and then started telling me the Rules of Yogurt, one at a time. He listed 7 rules, each specifically related to times he’d gotten in trouble because of his use or misuse of yogurt.

1. You can’t leave the yogurt out.
2. You can’t lick the spoon and put it back in.
3. You do it CAREFULLY.
4. You can’t break the bottom of it.
5. You can’t get a handful of yogurt.
6. You can’t get it until you ask a grownup… or your dad.
7. You have to put it back.

I like the fact that rules one and 7 are essentially the same but bear repeating because they have been emphasized on so many mornings when we’ve found the giant tub of yogurt sitting out luke-warm on the kitchen table.

I also like that Dan is not classified as an adult.

I also like that we need 7 rules about yogurt… so far.

    Oh, this reminds me of when we were teaching my eldest son how to behave at church. We came to the point that when I would tap him on the shoulder just before entering the church and he would rattle off on cue, “No running, no screaming, no hitting, no rough-housing and look out for babies.”

    I have drummed (I hope) #2 into my kids heads. It applies to peanut butter, jelly, yogurt and, well, anything. A few years ago, I was horrified to see my dad use the fork he was eating his dinner with to get jelly out of the jar and realizing that he had been doing it forever. Blarg!!

  6. Hahaha Dad is not a grownup. Your kids are brilliant 🙂

    We have another rule- yogurt is not lotion. It may look like it, but you CANNOT smear it all over your body. No matter how good it may feel.

    Also- the dogs do not need lotion- or yogurt rubbed on them either.

    Yeah…I wouldn’t classify Dan as an adult either….JK Dan! We have an eighth rule at our house. Yogurt can’t be used as a hair product in any sense. Yes, we use this rule often….

    yogurt! Who knew it could be so complicated to deal with. Thank heaven for the rules. And by the way, I think Dan is absolutely a grown-up (at least most of the time.)

  10. I love #6. It reminds me of being at a buffet resturant with my grandson. The sign said”All children must be accompanied by adult”. He read the sign and said “I don’t have an adult, I’ve only got Pawpaw”.
