Are You Ready to Have Kids?

Prepare by obtaining a small cloth bag and fill it with 8 - 12 pounds of sand. Soak it thoroughly in water. At 8:00 PM begin to waltz and hum with the bag until 9:00 PM. Lay down your bag and set your alarm for 10:00 PM.

Get up, pick up your bag, and sing every song you have ever heard. Make up about a dozen more and sing these too until 4:00 AM. Set alarm for 5:00 AM. Get up and make breakfast. Keep this up for 5 years. Look cheerful.

  5. Don't forget Sandee, they grow up to be big babies, ask for money, get mad at you when you try to teach them the rules of the world and you will always love them unconditionally. Have a brilliant April Fools Day Sandee. See ya.

    1. I rinsed out the diapers just like you did. Had the diaper pail and all. Oh the fun. :)

  12. You only need to keep this up for 5 years if you have only one bag of sand. Add an extra 5 years for each extra bag. Have a great one Sandee!

    1. Oh this is so very true. The more the kids the longer you have the same. Or ever more. :)

  13. They should do that in high school courses for both boys and girls, maybe the kiddos would wait a tad bit longer. ;)

  15. In our house five minutes of carrying Isabella would cure anyone of wanting to do that for long! She loves to be held like a baby but that 12 lbs feels like 50 real fast!

    Happy April Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

  21. Every school needs to include this as a project for teen-agers. Good lessons to be learned there for sure... :)

  22. This is definitely a lesson that should be taught in school. So true.

    Big hugs, honey...
