Why Boys Need Moms

March 26, 2009

A friend sent me a cute email this morning that I thought needed to be passed along. I could see Lawson in just about every one of the below pictures, and I know you other mothers of boys will see your boy(s) in them, too.


You learn interesting things when you have boys, such as

1) A king-sized waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. house 4 inches deep.


2) If you spray dustbunnies with hairspray 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 restaurant. (Hence the gag.)


4) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 lb. boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is, however, strong enough if tied to a paint can, to spray paint over all four walls of a 20×20 foot room.


5) When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh-oh,” it’s already too late.


6) Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old boy.


7) Play-Doh and microwave are two words that should not be used in the same sentence.


8) Super Glue really is forever.


9) No matter how much Jell-O you put in the swimming pool, you still can’t walk on water.

10) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.


11) VCRs do not eject PB&J sandwiches, even though the commercial says they do.


12) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.


13) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

14) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

15) Cats throw up half their body weight when dizzy.

As someone who has had tennis balls in the toilet, bras that mysteriously disappear (only to re-appear in a certain 6-year old’s bed), Gogurt wall art, and lassoes tied to every available object in the house,  I thoroughly enjoy the knowledge that others with boys experience the same…er…escapades. Enjoy…I hear they don’t stay young long. 🙂

    I just found your blog and love the name! I can SO relate!

    Oh, my goodness. Profound truths in each picture and saying are in this post. My boys are now 24 and 27 – I had most of those things happen in one way or another during their youngster and teen years.

    The other profound truth is Boys always love their mommas!

    I’ll be back often!

    You know, Cee, that is the one thing that was missing from that email–the bond between boys and their mommas! That is so true.

    Lori, I too as you know have a big boy (19) and he still does stupid crazy things, I don’t think they ever outgrow it, but they do make life interesting, and we never stop loving them……

    I can not stop laughing (in horror) at the last photo. My monkey is just 3 and gets in so much trouble.
