Behavior modification

Clownfish began laying down the law a few months ago at bed time.
Nightly, he would tell me some variation of this list:

  • Turn on TV very softly.
  • Just watch one show and then go to bed.
  • When you go to bed tiptoe so I don't hear you.
  • Just do a little work in the kitchen before bed.
  • Give Papa hug and kiss and noggin kiss and bite him / tackle him.
  • Walk very softly.
  • Don't forget to do the dishes.
  • Turn off all of the lights.

The list started to get a little ridiculously long, so now he just says 'follow all the rules'.

Goodnight goodnight God bless you, Mommy . . . follow all the rules.

Sir, yes sir. I have my marching orders.
