The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas...
Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding): 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 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.
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 Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

Hey Peggy does any of this sound familiar? How hilarious. Yikes

I'm on my way to Wal-Mart to get Clorox -- having a boy, I believe this, but having 2 daughters, I think it just about fits them, too. (on top of that I have one on the way, don't know boy or girl)

Hey J . Andrew. I do beleive that some girls can be just as mischevious as boys. maybe more so. My daughter was such a sneak and tom boy. She's not any more. At 26 yrs and married she's met her match in her hubby. He used to be the champion at being mischevious. He has lots of funny stories( almost scary) about when he was a child.

That is funny. I thought it was by you until I reread the intro.Luckily it wasn't!

Imran said...

Wow! I know more stuff from you boys. I'm with Anderw. Can't resist... must try item #8 for myself, then tell my son.

Have a great weekend with the boys.

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

You bet!!! You just don't know what kids can come up to. I'm a grandma to a 1 year & 7 months boy and boy does he really fill the whole house.
I'm an FFMB member too. Just signed in yesterday. Will join the march on Friday. I'm playing the organ which I do really love and can play forever tirelessly. See you there on Friday.

How funny! I actually thought about that bleach and brake fluid thing. And I'm not a man! LOL!

Marching through with FFMB. Have a wonderful weekend!

wandi said...

Hey Erin if your going to try the bleach and brake fluid please be careful. I know that when you mix bleach with some things it can cause a very toxic smell and can be deadly if inhaled. So I guess if you want to try it, make sure it's outside where there is lots of fresh air. I work in a place where we are taught that you don't mix certain chemicals. Be safe.

Hey Mom
These are hilarous. I know Brian tried more then one of those I am sure. Maybe that is why I am not have a baby yet. God is giving me alot of patience before I have two little Brians running around doing some off these things. And I am sure there Daddy will be giving them some pointers. That is why I am not letting Brian read this one.
