Things I Have Learned From Children

To honor all the kids returning to school from summer break…  Actually, to honor their moms…

I found this at Topic Viewer and thought it funny.  See if you agree:

Things I Have Learned From Children

  • A king-size waterbed hold enough water to fill a 2,000 square foot house four inches deep.
  • If you spray hairspray on dust bunnies and roll over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
  • A three-year-old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
  • If you hook a dog leash over the ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape.
  • If you hook a dog leash over the ceiling fan and tie it to a paint can, it does spread paint on all four walls of a 20×20 room.

  • When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the baseball up a few times before you get a hit.

  1. So, I’m thinking that the paint/ceiling fan thing is not such a bad idea.

    It might speed up the process.

  2. Exactly my point.

    We have been fortunate to not have experienced any of these. Our experiences have been more about removing stains and getting stitches.

  3. These are great. I’m making a mental note to not purchase a ceiling fan!

    I’ve actually tried the ball and fan thing (and as an adult)…but not with a baseball – it was pretty cool!
