What's the Number One Rule In Your House?
Some smarter people than me did some research to find out what the number one rule in your house is? What they discovered was 'shoes on the furniture' was the biggest no-no. I'm not so sure that was a 'number one' rule when I was growing up or even with our kids, just common sense.
I think this is a more common concern in places where the weather typically doesn't change as dramatically as Regina's, like California. In that case I think more people tend to come straight into the house without taking their shoes off.
Leave 'em at the door, people!
