323. Lessons that my parents learnt

Note: Bringing up a baby is an experience in itself. Bringing up a nutty baby gives wisdom

The following points are important lessons that my parents learnt in the first five years of my life when they tried to bring me up.

1) A king size water bed holds enough water to fill a house four inches deep.
2) If you pour kerosene on the leather cushion cover and light them with match sticks, they can ignite.
3) A 3-year-old's voice is louder than the priest's voice in a church.
4) Keep paintbrushes out of reach of children, if you want your television to remain in its original color.
5) You should not throw tennis balls up when the ceiling fan is on. When using the ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a tennis ball a long way
6) Always have wooden windows. Never ever have glass windows.
7) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "hehehe", it's already too late.
8) Never ever insert a screw driver inside the electric-power socket.
9) A magnifying glass can burn your feet even on an overcast day. So parents! stay away from your children when they have a magnifying glass in their hands
10) When your three year old is playing with a small bean and if the bean can't be seen, chances are that the bean will be inside the nose or the ears of the child.
11) Chewing gums can also be swallowed.
12) If your child is less than two years of age and if he is not wearing his nappy, do mind your steps. If you don't,you might stamp on something sticky.

The above picture was taken when Chronicwriter was ten months old (February 1983). He is not wearing an underwear in the picture. That was also the first time Chronicwriter graduated from crawling to walking.

    LOL hahaha! I like this one the best!


  5. Chris .

    Good post again .

    But here is a suggestion from me . I feel that you are narrowing down your ideas to kids and family mostly. I would like to see you write more about things happening around the world .


  6. @phenomenon

    I would seriously love to write about the big world. but seriously speaking, i dont know much to write about the big wide world..

    this blog mainly revolves around renu, jeremy, jolena, my family, red underwear and my memories..

    the world news come on a occasional basis and to spruce it up with humor involves spending some time on a post and if i am not lazy like i am right now, i'd sure come up with more posts on that

  7. just the dose of humour I needed before I headed out for a disgusting exam.
    lemme add a lil more:
    1. One can walk on walls
    2. Locking the self in and then screaming the heads off of the entire family can be a mere pastime, which often ends with angry glares and a gleeful laughter.
    3. The kitchen can be a spot for treasure hunt.
    4. Windows can be great hiding spots, as is the room between the four legs of a standard chair.

  8. Aww... the chronicwriter looks cute in that pic ;)

    And well those lessons are for every parent to learn when they have naughty naughty kids around :P

  9. awww....that was a cute post and cute pic :)

    i think these things are the most common one which kids do...which sometimes pisses off parents and sometimes makes them smile for their innocence.... :p

  10. Chronicwriter without the Red? Whatae shame:P

    Lol over 2. This is new:-)

  11. Cute post :)
    'chewing gum can be swallowed'
    reminds me of my childhood. I was bold enf to swallow it but after that I got panicked after what my parents said about swallowing a chewing gum

    Cute Picture. So you saw all your childhood fotos of you and your sis is it???

  12. "You should not throw tennis balls up when the ceiling fan is on. When using the ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a tennis ball a long way" - besh besh idhu romba nannairukki! lol

    "When your three year old is playing with a small bean and if the bean can't be seen" - what a rhyme scheme! lol

    I do not believe one little bit that you are lazy. I also believe you are a very intelligent man who uses wit as a tool. Continue to make others laugh but yes when you do have time come up with other posts - if you wish that!

  13. This is what my son has taught me:

    Anything missing from the house can be found outside our balcony on the ground.

    Living in a 4th floor apartment is scary! ;-)

  14. @srini

    i get the point.. the idea behind this blog is not to show my mettle and to prove to people that i know more about the big wide world.. the simple idea is to make people smile.. thats why i write in a very niche stream " humor"...

    can write humorous stuff about things that make news now around the Globe. But that i can make a decision based on who i am targeting..

    marketing is a sea and i have just started swimming in it bro..

    long way to go


  15. Memories came back rushing.. That's loads of mischief..
    Cute pic.. :)

  16. Shud report this site as ABUSE - having nudity...
