D is for Don't

1. Don't forget to brush your teeth.
2. Don't forget to be nice to your sisters (brothers are up for discussion).
3. Don't forget to undo your socks (nobody likes wet pairs).
4. Don't forget to eat your breakfast (best meal of the deal...Mmmm pancakes).
5. Don't forget to tie your shoes.

Yes. We've heard these a time or two... but what about more fun one's?

1. Don't forget to practice everyday (even if it's raining outside the drums must be played - on the inside).
2. Don't forget to be yourself (own who you are).
3. Don't forget to be dangerous (you're a kid - even if it's only at heart).
4. Don't forget to live life on the edge (sometimes).
5. Don't forget to be awesome.

Care to add anything extra?

Don't marry him. You have a Master's Degree and he's never even been to college. My father really said this to me before I got married. Daddy was wrong -- we've been happily married for 26 years.
