1- It is my house.
2- You can play with my toys but each one you pick up becomes my favorite and I will take it from you. (that's how my mom is with books)
3- when I want to play, we will play. When I'm done, back off!
4- All the spots on the furniture are my favorite. I will whine at you until you move.
5- if you don't eat your food immediately, I will steal it.
6- Treats. See rule #5
7-Don't mess with my routine:
- mornings are for breakfast, sniffing the yard to see what changed over the night, kisses with my mommy
- When mommy goes to work, I nap. ALL DAY
- Mommy comes home, I eat dinner, sniff the yard again. Then mommy plays with me until she has to take her nap. Then I nap with her.
- after nap is play time. maybe I will play with you then
9- DO NOT come near me when I am snuggling with mommy.
10-DO NOT go near mommy when she is snuggling with me.
