Raising Boys

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.

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

2. A 3-year old boy’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn’t stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

6. When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh,” it’s already too late.

7. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox® makes smoke, and lots of it.

8. 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.

9. Certain LEGO® building blocks will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old boy.

10. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

11. Super glue is forever.

12. No matter how much Jell-O® you put in a swimming pool you still can’t walk on water.

13. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

14. VCRs do not eject “PB & J” sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

15. 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 men who read this will try mixing the Clorox® and brake fluid.

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

  1. Very good Lisa. Excellent and funny observations. Before I got to #25, I was already planning to post it on Facebook. LOL
    Keep writing!


  2. Sigh of relief- I’m past this age with my kids (girls are no better- my daughter’s nickname is THE BEAST)
    although I dont know if I am past this age with boyfriend


  3. Loved it! I am so happy my kids and grandkids are past this stuff. Makes it much easier to laugh about every one of them. Except – I read this to my hub, and I could see the glint in his eyes when I mentioned the brake fluid/clorox thing. Uh oh.


  4. I don’t know where you people come up with this stuff. That was the first time I have ever seen that list, but it seems like it would make a good viral email. Thanks for the laugh.


Please leave me some comment Luv! I appreciate each and every one.
