The joys of parenthood

If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough
to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing pound puppy underwear and a superman
cape.
It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 by
20-foot room.
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 can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36 year
old man says they can only do it in the movies.
If you use a waterbed as home plate while wearing baseball shoes it does
not leak--it explodes.
A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. foot house 4
inches deep.
Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a four-year-old.
Super glue is forever.
McGyver can teach us many things we don't want to know.
No matter how much Jello you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk
on water.
Pool filters do not like Jello.
VCR's do not eject PB&J (peanut butter and jelly, for those who need more sleep) sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
Always look in the oven before you turn it on.
The fire department in San Jose has at least 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.

I'll see what else I can find pds. The small boys are feeling better, the grown up one is the same, and I'm feeling worse today than I have. Tomorrow is another day though. Thanks for asking!

lol pds.
It must be a man thing.
I feel bad for Ryan though, he gets every cold bug. He gets colds so often, at least a few every year. I have a good immune system and I rarely get colds, even if he's sick I can smooch him and be fine. I don't think working in the medical field helps him avoid the bugs either.

yes, firefighter/emt. The ambulances and fire engines are of the same dept. Sometimes Ryan is on the ambulance but mostly on the engine. Even then, it's standard for an ambulance and an engine to show up at a medical call. That's why you always wonder why does the fire dept show up at car accidents.

Ah, but you see, when a woman has a husband and 2 boys in the house, she essentially has 3 boys.

My Grandfather used to say (about getting work done) "If you have one boy, you have a boy. If you have 2 boys, you have a half a boy, and if you have 3 boys, you don't have a boy at all". He also used to say "What one won't think of the other one will"

My neice was born when I was 14, so to me she was more like a kid-sister. Despite the fact I was a teenager I played every game and she loved my collection of Tonka trucks from when I was a kid so we played outside whenever weather would allow ha ha. My motto was "Kids are a good excuse to let you be a kid again yourself" ha ha.

Hope you get to feeling better soon Corazon and enjoy them while they're little, which for us guys should be another 20 years or so <giggles>

God Bless.
