Following Doctor's Orders

This past Sunday as I concluded our "First Aid for the Family" series, I shared a final TOP TEN list.  These are the "Top Ten Things I Would Have Never Known Without Children."  Enjoy.

10. No matter what the TV ad says, “Simply Orange” will not erase a Magic Marker or Sharpie from ceramic tile.

9. The nostril of a 2-year old and an English Pea are exactly the same size.

8. Whoever invented the pacifier deserves a Nobel Peace Prize and a Congressional Medal of Honor.

7. 3 o’clock comes twice a day.

6. “Do you want a spanking?” is a perfectly legitimate question!

5. 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.

4. Whoever coined the phrase, “slept like a baby” apparently did not have children.

3. A penny will pass through the digestive tract of a two-year-old in about 2 ½ days.

2. When you hear the toilet flush followed by the words “Uh-oh,” it's already too late.

1. One man could ever have so much joy.
