Things I have learned from my children...

1. There is no such thing as child-proofing your house
2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite
3. A 4 years olds voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant
4. When you hear the toilet flush and the words 'Uh-oh', it's already too late
5. A magnifying glass can start a fire even on an overcast day
6. Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a four year old
7. Duplos will not
8. Play Dough and Microwave should never be used in the same sentence
9. Super glue is forever
10. McGyver can teach us many things we don't want to know
11. VCR's do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do
12. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes
13. You probably do not want to know what that odor is
14. Always look in the oven before you turn it on. Plastic toys do not like ovens
15. Quiet does not necessarily mean don't worry
16. A good sense of humor will get you through most problems in life (unfortunately, mostly in retrospect)

You have learned quite a lot. I am definitely still going through that process but I think I will take some of your lessons as a heads-up! Thanks.

Something I left off my list:
Teenagers will drive you insane on a daily basis. They think the world revolves around them and believe everyone around them was placed there to serve their every want and need.
