Boys

My mother sent me this (titled why boys need parents) and since SnowQueen has a new little boy, I thought she might like to see what she's in for:

Interesting things you learn when you have sons:

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 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.

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 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.

Oh Storm, that is priceless. I especially like #15...when Jesse was around 2 years old, he actually shoved half his peanut butter sandwich in the VCR.  :nono: It never worked after that.
I love the pictures...yup, that's all boy stuff. Thank you so much for the morning laugh ;D

I totally would, if I could get ahold of either.

And wouldn't get expelled from school superfast.

That's funny.  When I got to #8 I thought, huh, I didn't know that.  And as I read the others I kept thinking back to #8 - you know, because I'm all black ops and may need to MacGyver smoke.

This is hilarious and I am going to share it with everyone I know! I have a few of my own that I wanted to add:

26) When you hear silence in the other room and a 4 year old is in there, get in there as fast as possible.

27) When you ask "what are you doing?" and he responds "Nothing! Go away!" do not go away.

28) A three year old covered in blue paint will turn your entire bathroom blue.

29) Steel wool can get paint off linoleum.

30) Children who are raised vegan somehow forget to ask about the ingredients when there are cookies or donuts.

Storm, you have given me the best laugh for today-thanks!! Before having a child, I would have never believed that boys and girls have such fundamental differences...but dear god, I am glad I have a girl!! ;D

Although the numbers 26 & 27 from merryweather do apply to girls as well...I have recently found out!! (and sometimes, unfortunately, #30 as well...) :)

I dunno, I think most of them could apply to boys and girls, I know at least one fairly destructive 3-year-old girl... :)
