Daughter Rules

1. Eat what you want, as much as you want.

2. They do what they do, and we do what we do.

3. You are who you are, not what people say you are.

4. We don't talk business at the table. [I said it once and now she has adopted it and repeats it.]

5. A place for everything and everything in its place.

6. That's why they put erasers on the ends of pencils.
