Not Just A Mom House Rules

 Hey loves. How was your weekend? We had a great weekend as a family filled with movie night, game night, and some one on one time with Ella that was much needed and Brian and I checked out the home and garden show without kids. 

It's the second Monday of the month which means it's time for Not Just A Mom link up with these amazing ladies: DaraJenJoannaLauren, and Sarah.

If you are new here, WELCOME -  every month, the second Monday, I link up with these incredible ladies (DaraJenJoannaLauren, and Sarah )  and we share different aspects of our life. We are more than just moms. We would love for you to join us every month, even if your not a mom !!!!!

Last month we did some introductions
This month its all about our House Rules.

As a mom of 3, (ages 11, 7 and 3) we have to have rules. Without rules I feel like things get messier, more hectic, so loud, etc. I try to have a more peaceful but still fun house. House rules also help to give expectations for what is expected of my kids. 

 disclaimer: There is a time and place for rules, and sometimes rules need to be broken or switched up. 

Here are the Gilbert house rules (in no particular order)

  • Clothes go in the laundry basket
  • Put dirty dishes in the sink
  • No TV before school
  • No tablet on school nights
  • Use manners
  • Share 
  • Be respectful to each other, your things, and others things.
  • No yelling
  • No hitting. kicking, name calling
  • Always tell the truth

Do you have any of the same house rules? 

I hope to see you back here next month on Monday March 13 with a Day in the Life Weekend Edition!!!! 

Thank you for stopping by!!!!! If you are new here,

  1. Awesome rules- thanks for sharing!

  2. We sure did; though once we began homeschooling I was able to let up on many of the tablet/ screen rules and we didn't really have school nights and weekend nights as they were all just nights.

  3. Manners and always tell the truth would be two of our big ones for sure.

    1. yes and they seem like they can be the hardest one for little kids too

  4. No TV before school is a good kids get too easily distracted, so I tell them the same thing!

    1. that is our biggest argument with my middle child he is so distracted

  5. Great house rules. Respect, manners and telling the truth are super important 😊

  6. It sounds like you had a lovely weekend.
    Rules do help keeping a home run smoothly. These are all really sensible one's that we go by too, mostly. x

  7. Good basic rules to keep everything running smoothly! I think you'll find that you don't need to spell things out in detail as much as kids get older and have learned to do those basics automatically.
