Guideline 74
74. You shall not substitute duct tape for a babysitter.

Okay, so my best friend and I have joked about doing this with our children on more than one occasion (coupled with Nyquil) but that's all it has ever been - a joke. Of course, she is a SAHM and homeschools. She has two sons and two daughters ages 7, 5, 2, and 13 mos. So you can see where the duct tape might sound like a good idea.

Now we can't even joke about it anymore...people might think we'd do it (as tempting as it is - but hey we planned on being home and enjoying the peace and quiet).

What I don't get is that this chick was in the military. All bases have great home daycare (okay, wait, did I really use the word great and daycare in the same sentence?) facilities. I used them a time or two for emergency situations. The moms that run them are all licensed.

Is it really necessary to duct tape your children together? I know military members don't get paid a whole lot; my husband was in the Air Force. But I never had to resort to duct taping my kids together in lieu of daycare...
