Hey guys - found this and it is soooooo funny -I'm especailly loving the goat one Test 1 To prepare for maternity, put on a dressing gown and stick a beanbag down the front. Leave it there for 9 months. After 9 months remove 10% of the beans. Test 2 Find a couple who are already parents and berate them about their methods of discipline, lack of patience, appallingly low tolerance levels and how they have allowed their children to run wild. Suggest ways in which they might improve their child's sleeping habits, toilet training, table manners and overall behaviour. Enjoy it. It will be the last time in your life that you will have all the answers. Test 3 To discover how the nights will feel: 1. Walk around the living room from 5pm to 10pm carrying a wet bag weighing approximately 4-6kg, with a radio tuned to static (or some other obnoxious sound) playing loudly. 2. At 10pm, put the bag down, set the alarm for midnight and go to sleep. 3. Get up at 12pm and walk the bag around the living room until 1 am. 4. Set the alarm for 3am. 5. As you can't get back to sleep, get up at 2am and make a cup of tea. 6. Go to bed at 2.45am. 7. Get up again at 3am when the alarm goes off. 8. Sing songs in the dark until 4 am. 9. Put the alarm on for 5am. Get up when it goes off. 10. Make breakfast. Keep this up for 5 years. Look cheerful. Test 4 Dressing small children. 1. Buy a live octopus and a string bag. 2. Attempt to put the octopus into the string bag so that none of the arms hang out. 3. Time allowed for this - all morning. Test 5 Forget the BMW. Buy a Volvo/people carrier, etc 1. Buy a chocolate ice cream cone and put it in the glove compartment. 2. Leave it there. 3. Get a coin, insert it into the CD player then remove it with a lump hammer 4. Take a family size pack of chocolate biscuits; mash them into the back seat. 5. Run a garden rake along both sides of the car. Test 6 Get ready to go out. 1. Plan to got out at 1pm but wait until 1:15 to get ready. 2. Go out the front door. 3. Come in again. 4. Go out. 5. Come back in. 6. Go out again. Test 7 Repeat everything, and we mean everything you say at least 5 times. Test 8 Go to the local supermarket. Take with you the nearest thing you can find to a pre-school child. A full-grown goat is excellent. If you intend to have more than one child, take more than one goat. Buy your week's groceries without letting the goat(s) out of your sight. Pay for everything the goat eats or destroys. Until you can easily accomplish this, do not even contemplate having children. Test 9 1. Hollow out a melon. 2. Make a small hole in the side. 3. Suspend the melon from the ceiling and swing it from side to side. 4. Now get a bowl of soggy cornflakes and attempt to spoon them into the swaying melon while pretending to be an aeroplane. 5. Continue until half the cornflakes are gone. 6. Tip the rest into your lap, making sure that a lot of it falls on the floor. 7. You are now ready to feed a 12-month-old child. Test 10 Learn the names of every character from Thomas the Tank Engine, Barney, Teletubbies and Disney, and all the songs of the Wiggles and Tweenies. Watch nothing else on TV for at least five years. Test 11 Can you stand the mess children make? To find out: 1. Smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the curtains. 2. Hide a fish behind the stereo and leave it there all summer. 3. Stick your fingers in the flower beds then rub them on the clean walls. 4. Cover the stains with crayon. 5. How does that look? Test 12 Make a recording of a high-pitched voice shouting 'Mam' repeatedly. Play this tape in your car, everywhere you go for the next four years. You are now ready to take a long trip with a toddler. Test 13 Start talking to an adult of your choice. Have someone else continuously tug on your skirt hem/shirt sleeve/elbow while playing the 'Mam' Tape made from Test 12 above. You are now ready to have a conversation with an adult while there is a child in the room. Test 14 Put on your finest work attire. Pick a day on which you have an important meeting. Now: 1. Take a cup of cream, and put 1 cup lemon juice in it. 2. Stir. 3. Dump half of it on your nice silk shirt. 4. Saturate a towel with the other half of the mixture. 5. Attempt to clean your shirt with the saturated towel. 6. Do NOT change. You have no time. 7. Go directly to work. Test 15 Go for a drive, but first... 1. Find one large tomcat and six pit bulls. 2. Borrow a child safety seat and put it in the back seat of your car. 3. Put the pit bulls in the front seat of your car. 4. While holding something fragile or delicate, strap the cat into the child seat. 5. For the really adventurous...... Run some errands, remove and replace the cat at each stop. If you can pass all 15 tests you are now ready to have kids
