Never Argue With a Woman

One of my mom-stuff friends emailed me this funny story. I had to share it with you. It will make you laugh and brighten your day. Share it with the smart woman in your life.

One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap…
Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside of the woman and says “Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, “Isn’t that obvious?”)
You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,” he informs her.
“I’m sorry officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.”
“Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” argues the Game Warden,
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.”
“Have a nice day ma’me,” the officer said as he left.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman, you will lose.

Send this to all of the intelligent woman in your life. Brought to you by

Tell your Father “My Dad Rocks”

Do you remember the pet rock? It was one of the biggest gift crazes in American history. Introduced in time for the holiday gift-buying season in 1975. The pet rock came in a cardboard box that looked like a pet porter, with a training manual, and sold for 3.95. Gary Dahl, the man who “invented” the pet rock became an instant millionaire.
Ken Hakuta, inventor of the Wacky Wallwalkers, has an explanation for the periodic success of what he calls “useless dumb jokes” like the pet rock. “It gives people a few moments of absolute meaningless pleasure in a troubled world–no small accomplishment.” is bringing back the pet rock. Their version has much more “BLING”

Is your Dad a rock star?

Make him his own pet rock for Father’s Day.

The Price of Children

As we are approaching Mother’s Day and dealing with an unstable economy this is just too good not to pass on to all of my Mom-Stuff Friends. I have repeatedly seen the breakdown of the cost of raising a child, but this is the first time I have seen the rewards listed this way. We, the Mom-Stuff Team wish all of you a very blessed Mother’s Day.

The Price Of Children

The government recently calculated the cost of raising a child from birth
To 18 and came up with $160,140.00 for a middle income family. Talk about
price shock! That doesn’t even touch college tuition.

But $160,140.00 isn’t so bad if you break it down. It translates into:
* $8,896.66 a year,
* $741.38 a month, or
* $171.08 a week.
* That’s a mere $24.24 a day!
* Just over a dollar an hour.

Still, you might think the best financial advice is don’t have children if
you want to be ‘rich.’ Actually, it is just the opposite.

What do you get for your $160,140.00?
* Naming rights. First, middle, and last!
* Glimpses of God every day.
* Giggles under the covers every night.
* More love than your heart can hold.
* Butterfly kisses and Velcro hugs.
* Endless wonder over rocks, ants, clouds, and warm cookies.
* A hand to hold, usually covered with jelly or chocolate.
* A partner for blowing bubbles and flying kites.
* Someone to laugh yourself silly with, no matter what the boss said or how
your stocks performed that day.

For $160,140.00, you never have to grow up. You get to:
* finger-paint,
* carve pumpkins,
* play hide-and-seek,
* catch lightning bugs, and
* never stop believing in Santa Claus.

You have an excuse to:
* keep reading the Adventures of Piglet and Pooh,
* watch Saturday morning cartoons,
* go to Disney movies, and
* wish on stars.
* You get to frame rainbows, hearts, and flowers under refrigerator magnets
and collect! spray painted noodle wreaths for Christmas, hand prints set in
clay for Mother’s Day.

For a mere $24.24 a day, there is no greater bang for your buck. You get
to be a hero just for:
* retrieving a Frisbee off the garage roof,
* taking the training wheels off a bike,
* removing a splinter,
* filling a wading pool,
· coaxing a wad of gum out of bangs,
· coaching a baseball team that you treat to ice cream regardless of who wins the game.

You get a front row seat in history to witness the:
* first step,
* first word,
* first bra,
* first date, and
* first time behind the wheel.

You get to be immortal. You get another branch added to your family tree,
and if you’re lucky, a long list of limbs in your obituary called
grandchildren and great grandchildren. You get an education in psychology,
nursing, criminal justice, communications, and human sexuality that no
college can match.

In the eyes of a child, you rank right up there under God.
You have all the power to heal a boo-boo, scare away the monsters under the
bed, patch a broken heart, police a slumber party, ground them forever, and
love them without limits, so one day they will, like you, love without
counting the cost. That is quite a deal for the price!!!!!!!

Love & enjoy your children & grandchildren & great-grandchildren !!!!!!! They are the best investment you will make. Have a Happy Mothers Day.
