Things we learn from having sons

I'm sure some girls have tried these too.

1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. 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 tie d to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceili ng fan as a b at, 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.

6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words 'uh oh', it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9. 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.

10. Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4- year old Boy.

11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12. Super glue is forever.

13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15. VCR's do not eject 'PB & J' sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16. Garbag e bags do not make good parachutes.

17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18. You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20. The fire department in Austin , TX has a 5-minute response time.

21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.







24. 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.

25. 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.


MY husband, wants to try tieing the paint can to the ceiling!!! That scares me too!!

Ya know, if this was 1 woman that wrote that ALL about her boys, you would think after say, number 12 at least, she'd keep a better eye on them! Sheesh!

are you kidding suzie? LOL boys are SNEEKY!!
When mine were 3 and 5, they still had their naps. well, they ALWAYS whisperd until they fell asleep. on one day, the whispering stopped, so, went to check on them as normal, THEY WERE NOT IN THEIR BEDS!!! i stood there for a second letting my brain take this in. at the time, we lived in a 60's model mobile home. those didn't have normal windows in the rooms, they were rolls outs that only went out about 1 1/2 feet. i looked under the bunk and in the closets, then, i heard a whisper, so, i looked out the window and low and behold, there they are trying to figure out how to get back into the window that was about 4 feet from their heads!!!
at the time, i was SO angry and shaking for what could have happened. needless to say, i whooped their butts and they stayed in their beds the rest of the day!! they never did it again. i can laugh about it now. the look on their faces was priceless!!
there are so many more things and i was a very over protective mom. i think that is why mine are being jerks right now. rebelling!!

LOL Stacy, I think Lego girl's infamous trick was my #12!!!!!
My 4 yr old, when he was her age scared the bejeezus out of us with the windows...
We are in a split-entry house and it slopes to the back. The living room windows are about 10 feet up. DH and I were talking in the kitchen, noticed it was quiet. The living room screen was out and Nathan was nowhere! I expected to look out the window and see him laying there..... nothing. We had a baby gate up at the top of the stairs cuz LG was just learning to crawl, Nathan hadn't been over it yet. Well apparently he was screwing with the screen and popped it out, and climbed the gate to get out the front door to try to get the screen back in.
I am SO done having babies!!!!!! (2 year olds is more like it)

Now I better get back to watching because I think Nathan is coloring a stuffed dog purple with a marker........
