We laugh because we know it’s true…


When planning a family, there are many discussions and questions that come up between husband and wife.   Are we financially stable right now?  Do we have room in our home?  What will be the childcare arrangements?  Well, I recently found an article outlining how to know exactly when you are ready to add children to your family.  I hope that you all enjoy a good laugh!!  If you have any additions, feel free to comment!


MESS TEST                                                                                                                                                                                                                Smear peanut butter on the sofa and curtains. Place a fish stick behind the couch and leave it there all summer.

TOY TEST                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Obtain a 55-gallon box of Legos (or you may substitute roofing tacks). Have a friend spread them all over the house. Put on a blindfold. Try to walk to the bathroom or kitchen. Do not scream because this would wake a child at night.

GROCERY STORE TEST                                                                                                                                                                                 Borrow one or two small animals (goats are best) and take them with you as you shop. Always keep them in sight and pay for anything they eat or damage.

FEEDING TEST                                                                                                                                                                                                     Obtain a large plastic milk jug. Fill halfway with water. Suspend from the ceiling with a cord. Start the jug swinging. Try to insert spoonfuls of soggy cereal into the mouth of the jug, while pretending to be an airplane. Now dump the contents of the jug on the floor.

INGENUITY TEST                                                                                                                                                                                                  Take an egg carton. Using a pair of scissors and pot of paint, turn it into an alligator. Now take toilet paper tubes and turn them into attractive handmade candles.  Use only scotch tape and a piece of foil. Last, take a milk carton, a ping-pong ball, and an empty box of Cocoa Puffs. Make an exact replica of the Eiffel Tower.

AUTOMOBILE TEST                                                                                                                                                                                         Forget the BMW and buy a station wagon. Buy a chocolate ice cream cone and put it in the glove compartment. Leave it there. Get a dime. Stick it into the cassette player. Take a family size package of chocolate chip cookies. Mash them into the back seat. Run a garden rake along both sides of the car. There, perfect.

FINAL ASSIGNMENT                                                                                                                                                                                                Go to the nearest drug store.  Set your wallet on the counter.  Tell the clerk to help himself.  Now proceed to the nearest food store.  Go to the manager’s office and arrange for your paycheck to be directly deposited to the store.  Purchase a newspaper.  Go home and read it in silence for the last time.




  1. I have read a few just right stuff here. Certainly value bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much attempt you put to make any such wonderful informative website.
