I was searching the net for good reads when I saw this:
Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding):
-A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 square foot house 4 inches deep
-If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
-A 3-year old boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
-If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape.
-It is strong enough, however if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.
-You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on.
-When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit.
-A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
-The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
-When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.
-Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
-A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.
-Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old boy.
-Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
-Super glue is forever.
-No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool, you still can't walk on water.
-Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
-VCR's do not eject peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
-Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
-Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
-You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.
-Always look in the oven before you turn it on;
-plastic toys do not like ovens.
-The fire department in Austin, Texas has a 5-minute response time.
-The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
-It will, however, make cats dizzy.
-Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
This heightened my respect to mothers particularly to my mother having many sons, our father at work and without any nanny to back her up.
And I personally wouldn't want to know what that odor is!^^
