To the Moms with Boys

A heart friend of mine posted this on her blog, and so I just had to steal it, knowing how many of my friends – especially you blogging friends- had boys…

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 20×20 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 Clorox and brake fluid.

  1. I literally laughed out loud when I read these. As the mother of 3 boys, we have experiences a few of these, that’s for sure!! In regards to #15 about the vcr … one day we couldn’t figure out why we couldn’t get a video in our vcr … after a closer look we discovered several dvds had been shoved inside… no wonder it wouldn’t work, lol! Thanks for sharing these … it was fun reading them :).

    I got this in an email a few years ago. It’s still funny. But I particularly like number 25.

    I like that one too 🙂

  3. I’m going to be rude and use your blog as an answering service. lol I don’t think I have your e-mail address but I do think we should try to get together one of these days, it’s so silly that we live relatively close and never have. Here’s my e-mail: stamperscandles at yahoo dot com.

  4. I’ve received this email a few times and it cracks me up each and every time. I was wondering, though, if it’s normal that *I* want to try the brake fluid/Clorox thing? And I want to show my boys while I try it????? Does that make me a bad mom?

  5. Hmm…it’s missing something. Like snakes. In A/C vents. Or maybe that is #18…

    I’ve gotten this email before too–I love it!! 🙂

    I could add another list to this! And I decided not to show my husband this list when I saw the one about brake fluid and bleach. Boys really never grow up 😛
