Ten thoughts on ...bringing up boys

With thanks to Lorraine Jones for forwarding a piece with pics about the, er, charms of small boys. Here are ten observations quite close to home.

A 3-year old boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant. A 7-year old’s is even louder.

Any space, anywhere, can be transformed into a football pitch. Even a trampoline.

When a small boy is asked a question in church about a bible story, he will always answer with a reference to Sponge Bob Square Pants or The Simpsons.

When you tell a boy not to leave the light on if he goes to the toilet in the night, make it clear he can actually turn it on so he can see where he’s pissing.

When you hear the toilet flush and the words "woopsie", it's already too late.

The molecular structure of our dining table is now 20 per cent Weetabix.

It is possible for Lego pieces to pass through the digestive tract of a 5 - year old boy.

Always serve the same food to every child on the same sized plate, irrespective of whether they will eat the food in front of them. If it takes a dollop of ketchup to make a boy eat vegetables, then fine.

DVDs may be an advanced technology, but the sticky fingers of small boys make them useless in weeks. Stick to video tapes.

VCR's do not eject PBJ sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

Just wiped our toilet clean for the third time today and we only have 3 lads! They miss the target even in the daylight.
