IF YOU HAVE SONS, YOU HAVE LEARNED MANY THINGS

like...
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 tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 x 20 ft.. room..
5.) 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.
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.) Garbage 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.

Boys are certainly more than what you might think but they add so much to a Mom's life. My life has been a total learning experience from the four that God gave to me. I will forever be thankful.lol said as my memory goes back over the years and years and laughing all the way. connie

I've read this before, but it's just as funny the second time around! Thanks for a needed laugh!

Betty said...

I experienced most of those with my four boys.

As for #25. I'll have to wait until Friday to try that out. I'll just have to remember to bring some clorox with me when I go to my son's auto repair shop for a tune-up.

I loved those, they took my mind off of all the madness going on.

Aspiemom said...

Mercy, did your boys do those things? My son was reading this list along with me and I was telling him "Don't you ever do that!" lol

Humble wife said...

Sadly I may(or may not) have personal understanding of #1, 7, and 10...too funny, since time has past, lots of time...

Sis. Tammy said...

This is the first time I've visited your blog and let me just say that I had all the family running to see what I was laughing so hard about. LOL LOL LOL

I teach Sunday School and once I had only boys (7 of them, and I had wanted all boys myself), well lets just say that after that morning I prayed that the Lord would bless me with at least one girl to sweeten things up a bit. HA! HA!

Jungle Mom said...

I read this to Clint, before I finished he was already discussing trying the brake fluid and clorox thing.

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

HILARIOUS!

Thursday's Child said...

OK, am I brave enough to pass that along to my husband? Could attempting some of those things get us deported? LOL

Pam,

Thanks for visiting my blog. And this list is really good stuff. I am a mom of 3 boys and this is so true! I think I could add a few:-)
