A little something that KimM sent me this morning; love the last one!

For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious. For

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

children nearing this age, this is a warning. 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 Children (honest & no kidding):

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

4 inches deep.

2. If you spray hairspray on dust bunnies and run over them with

rollerblades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old’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 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 time

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 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.

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


22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24. The mind of a 6-year old is wonderful. First grade…true story:

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little

Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where the first pig was

trying to accumulate the building materials for his home. She read, “…And

so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said,

‘Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'”

The teacher paused then asked the class, “And what do you think that man


One little boy raised his hand and said, “I think he said… ‘Holy shit! A

talking pig!'”

The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes
