Boy, Oh Boy!

Well, as many people know I am not exactly what you would call a "Tom Boy", and I come from a family of all girls. I am very excited about having a boy (we always wanted aboy first), but I am not sure what I am getting myself into! These are pictures from an email that my mom forwarded me titled "Why Boys Need Parents".
Here is the rest of the email...
And 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 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 pieces 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 Toronto 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.

Ah the joy of boys. Me and my brother had some good times when we were little. Like the time we crawled 200 yards down a sewer drain that was 2 ft in diameter, or when we wrapped a whole roll of ducttape around a neighbor's kid's head, or when my brother chipped his tooth in half on a friend's forehead, or when I accidently put whacked a golf ball into my father's friend's brand new car that he bought that day, or when....

Anyways, my Mom was glad she had only boys!

I love this email- yes, my brother was a great source of entertainment and mischeif. We wouldn't have traded him for anything-maybe growing up we would have but now, he is a keeper :-)
