My subject is: If you were on the show WIFE SWAP. what rules would you incorporate? It was submitted by: Dates 2 Diapers. Here goes:
I’m not really sure if the intent was for me to list the rules I’d leave for the woman
Welcome to my home. I hope you’re happy and comfortable during your stay here. But don’t get too comfortable, you’ve got a whole lot of work to do. I fully expect you to live up to your part of this deal and whip this family into shape.
I know that for the first part of your time here you’re supposed to follow my rules. But this family is
*If you want to eat anything while you’re here, I recommend you hide it. Really well.
*Same with car keys. If you want to go anywhere you’ll need to hide those as well.
*If the kids are out somewhere and you want to talk to them, you’ll need to text them. They are unaware of what that sound is that the phone makes and don’t know that they can actually answer it and talk to people.
*If you ask the boys to clean their rooms and they say they’re clean, I recommend you actually look. I would not recommend entering, however, even if your tetanus shots are up to date.
*You’ll save yourself a lot of aggravation if you think of the boys’ curfew like a baby’s due date. They may come early, they may come late, but the chances that they’ll come when you expect them are pretty non-existent.
*When it comes to meals, chances are unless you’re making Pizza or Burgers they won’t like what you make. You can take it personally or not, up to you, but there it is.
*Familiarize yourself with the bar in the living room. And I've left you a recipe for an "adults only" Cosmo Poke Cake.

And now for a few actual rules:
*You’ll need to bake daily. Hordes of teenagers will descend on the house once you can smell the chocolate baking so I recommend you wear your track shoes. And a helmet.
*Be sure to take pictures of what you bake. You’ll need to write a blog post when you’re done. You’ll thank me, blogging = venting and venting = survival.
*Last rule: No swapsies backsies.
Good luck. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
