Growing up our house was always full of kids coming in and out. One day my Mom finally got fed up with the constant stream of kids knocking asking if we could play! We came home to sign on our front door that said, “Do not knock. Kids cant play. They will be out when they can.”
It was the neighborhood joke. All of our friends teased her about it. She loved it! The peace of not having to answer the door to kid after kid, explaining that her kids were busy with chores. Now here I am some 20 years later and I NEED her sign. I don’t have her original but I made my own! Pretty sure my Mom is in heaven having a big happy “I told you so!” moment 🙂
It is so great! I hated how my kids would get all sulky when I turned their friends away. They would whine so much more knowing someone wanted to play. Now, that is not a problem! They work hard so I will take the sign down! Pretty sure this is going to save my sanity this summer too!
I made the signs purposefully bright and obnoxious so they cant be missed:)
Feel free to take control of your front door too! Its GREAT!
