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 20×20 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.

My husband can teach you a few things you didn't want to know about common household liquids and smoke, too. mmm…hmm…
Bless his heart. Never a dull moment. 🙂
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.
Oh that's the truth Marg. Fun though. 🙂
I like the toilet one the best lol. Have a great day! xxoxoxo
They are all fun aren't they. 🙂
OMG….I raised two sons….and some of these are mighty familiar! Have a great day!
Yep, I can remember some of these too. 🙂
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
Kids are very loud. I always tell them to use your inside voice, not the outside one. 🙂
Now I know why I never turn on my ceiling fan. These are all good but I like the toilet on the best.
I've dealt with that one more than I want to talk about. 🙂
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).
I'm lucky because I didn't have any ceiling fans back in the day. I'm ever so happy about that now. 🙂
Love these facts! LOL! 🙂
And they are far more fun after you've raised the kids. 🙂
Regarding the last one, you didn't really learn your lesson.
This is true. 🙂
Interesting facts yet very, very true! My neighbour's grandchild can match the 3 year old boy at #3. He is never tired of screaming or shouting!!!
Oh and they can be so very loud too. 🙂
they should devise a new unit "kid power" and relate it to "horse Power" to utilize the power meaningfully!
Have a great day!
I think you're on to something here. 🙂
Life is always interesting with a young child in the house!
Interesting and then some. 🙂
LOL love em especially the ceiling fan one haha!
Have a facttastic day Sandee :-h
Oh the ceiling fan one is done all the time. 🙂
Great thoughts and lessons.
Yep, and I'm so glad my kids are grown and gone. 🙂
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.
Oh it's been done more than once, but you can blame it on me if you wish. 🙂
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…
Big hugs, honey…
I think he's way smarter than that. He isn't isn't he? 🙂
My husband can wield the plunger like a mad samurai thanks to the skills our children have exhibited with clogging it.
Yep, you've got to be quick before the mess gets bigger and bigger. 🙂
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.
Yep, I can remember many of these happening. Always such a fun time. 🙂
My ceiling fan only hit foul balls. My pet rock was disappointed.
Seymour is a hoot, but you already know that. 🙂
Heeheehee! Yep, we had some similar discoveries when mine were younger!
Yep, and those are just the things we know about. 🙂
So far as I know my ceiling fan was never used for hitting balls but then you never know what those kids did when I wasn't looking
I found out a lot of stuff after my son was in his 30s. 🙂
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.
Oh there are millions of child raising stories. Glad yours turned out okay. 🙂
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.
This is so true. I doubt that I have the energy to raise kids now. You have a blessed weekend too. 🙂
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. 🙂
I've missed you and I'm happy things are good for you. Busy is good, as long as everything is okay. See you Sunday. 🙂
Ceiling fans have many uses!
Yes they do and some of them are downright scary. 🙂
Yes…. when you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.
Yes it is. Been there and done that. 🙂
