Raising Boys: Hair Raising

Raising Boys - 24 key points to ponder

a) For those with no children - this is totally hysterical!

b) For those who already have children past this age, this is

c) For those who have children this age, this is not funny.

d) For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.

e) For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control.

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas...

Things I've learned from my Boy's (honest and not kidding):

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

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

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

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 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
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

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

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
walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

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

20.) The fire department in La Mesa, CA has a 5-minute response time.

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

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

25.) Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or
without kids.

A modern parent will show this to their kids and say :

If that all happened to one poor mom she should receive some sort of prize or at least some sort of mental health care "cuz I'm sure she must need it by now...At least my boys never tied a paint can to the ceiling fan!!! They did however put a pizza on the blades and turned it on to see how far it would fling the pizza...pretty far and pizza sauce can stain an antique white wall!

These are great! I loved them all and just when I think I missed something just having girls, I will look at this list again. Priceless.

Thus far, none of our boys have used our ceiling fans in any way but what they were intended for.

A couple of my boys did use fabric paint to make hand prints on the living room carpet. Steamatic was called before I could even think and they were able to get it out.

The Omaha, NE fire department has a 5 minute response time and I know this because my 3 year old figured out the panic button to our alarm system. According to the guy installing it, this was child proof.
