Things you discover when you have sons …

My mom sent this to me today. Now I’m very worried!

you also find out interesting things when you have sons, 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 Legos 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.) VCRs 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.

    You don’t necessarily need to be worried, Jen. I have an older brother, and neither of us were all that into property damage. I think we played outside too much to stick strange things in the microwave. So just make sure Luke has room to run around outside when he gets older.
