What Kids Taught Me

A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

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

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

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.

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.

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

When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.

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

A six-year old kid can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.

Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4- year old boy.

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

  2. Lots of great facts. Using a ceiling fan as a bat sounds like something fun to do if you don't value anything else in the house. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic day.

  5. I was in Walmart yesterday and I heard a 1 year old girl yell and I thought it was jet engine. It heard my ears. It's unbelievable what little kids can do. It scared me.
    Have a beautiful, warm & enjoyable Thursday Sandee. See ya

    1. Kids are very loud. I always tell them to use your inside voice, not the outside one. :)

  7. I've had a ceiling fan dilemma thanks to kid #2 and kid #4. ;)
    I've also had to replace a person's window because of a bb gun shot from kid #1 (many years ago).

  15. uh-oh, see a few good ideas there. Brake fluid and Clorox? I would not have thought of that. When Sandy gets upset, I'll tell her I got the idea from you.

  16. Some of these I will NOT want MM to see! Haha. He and his brother wrote the book on what not to do as a kid. It's a wonder they survived their antics. Grins...

  18. Gosh, some of those sound awfully familiar with my husband's family, my family, and raising our girls. It's a wonder all of us survived with our limbs intact.

  22. OH OH OH I have one! If you take a glow stick and microwave it, it will explode. And then when you take it out and accidentally wipe your eye, it will start to burn your eye out! True story. But all was well after much eye washing.

  23. This is how adults learn stuff. We watch our kids attempt things that have never crossed our minds. This is also why you have your children when you are young, so that you have time to recover from some of these life experiments. Love them. Have a blessed week-end.

  24. Hmm. Will have to remember these the next time I'm bored. LOL Sorry I haven't been around much lately, Sandee. :( The past few weeks have been super busy and I've been taking a much-needed blogging break. Will be easing my way back in, however, with a joke this coming Sunday. :)
