    Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding):

    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's 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 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 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.

    A little boy asks his father - Daddy, how was I born? Dad responds, ah, my son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Well, you see, your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on MSN. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Popup appeared and said:

    You've got male!

    is my favorite lullaby.
    Month Two
    Mommy
    today I learned how to suck my thumb.
    If you could see me
    you could definitely tell that I am a baby.

    though. It is so nice and warm in here.

    I'm a boy!!
    I hope that makes you happy.
    I always want you to be happy.

    and I cry with you even though
    you can't hear me.

    my hair is starting to grow.
    It is very short and fine

    and stretch my arms and legs.
    I am becoming quite good at it too.
    Month Five
    You went to the doctor today.
    Mommy, he lied to you.
    He said that I'm not a baby.

    I think and feel
    Mommy, what's abortion?
    Month Six
    I can hear that doctor again.
    I don't like him.
    He seems cold and heartless.
    Something is intruding my home.
    The doctor called it a needle.
    Mommy what is it? It burns!
    Please make him stop!
    I can't get away from it!
    Mommy! HELP me!
    Month Seven
    Mommy
    I am okay.
    I am in Jesus's arms.
    He is holding me.
    He told me about abortion.
    Why didn't you want me Mommy?
    Every Abortion Is Just . . .
    One more heart that was stopped.
    Two more eyes that will never see.
    Two more hands that will never touch.
    Two more legs that will never run.
    One more mouth that will never speak.....

    I opened the door to find my five year old son, Jayden, sitting in the middle of my makeup- all scattered around him on the floor. "Jayden what are you doing?" I asked angrily. He looked up at me a little fearfully and said "Mommy I just wanted to draw you a picture." Seeing the water well up in his wide blue eyes, I softened. "Why did you use Mommy's makeup instead of all the new crayons I bought you?" I asked. "Because," He replied, "these are pretty colors, and Daddy says that they make you beautiful, and I wanted your picture to be pretty, like you." All my anger burnt out, I hugged Jayden close to me. I felt so bad now about getting angry. He felt the tears on my face before I did, and simply said "Don't cry Mommy. You'll always be prettier than my picture."

    Appreciate the small things
