  • You Know You're a Mom When . . .

    1. Your feet stick to the kitchen floor . . . and
    you don't care.

    2. When the kids are fighting, you threaten to lock them in
    a room together and not let them out until someone's

    3. You can't find your cordless phone, so you ask a friend
    to call you, and you run around the house madly, following
    the sound until you locate the phone downstairs in the
    laundry basket.

    4. You spend an entire week wearing sweats.

    5. Your idea of a good day is making it through without a
    child leaking bodily fluids on you.

    6. Popsicles become a food staple.

    7. Your favorite television show is a cartoon.

    8. Peanut butter and jelly is eaten at least in one meal a

    9. You're willing to kiss your child's boo-boo, regardless
    of where it is.

    10. Your baby's pacifier falls on the floor and you give it
    back to her, after you suck the dirt off of it because your
    too busy to wash it off.

    11. Your kids make jokes about flatulence, burping, pooping,
    ect. and you think it's funny.

    12. You're so desperate for adult conversation that you
    spill your guts to the telemarketer that calls and HE hangs
    up on YOU!

    13. Spit is your number one cleaning agent.

    14. You're up each night until 10 PM vacuuming, dusting,
    wiping, washing, drying, loading, unloading, shopping,
    cooking, driving, flushing, ironing, sweeping, picking up,
    changing sheets, changing diapers, bathing, helping with
    homework, paying bills, budgeting, clipping coupons, folding
    clothes, putting to bed, dragging out of bed, brushing,
    chasing, buckling, feeding (them, not you), PLUS swinging,
    playing baseball, bike riding, pushing trucks, cuddling
    dolls, roller blading, basketball, football, catch, bubbles,
    sprinklers, slides, nature walks, coloring, crafts, jumping
    rope, PLUS raking, trimming, planting, edging, mowing,
    gardening, painting, and walking the dog. You get up at 5:30
    AM and you have no time to eat, sleep, drink or go to the
    bathroom, and yet . . . you STILL managed to gain 10 pounds.

    15. In your bathroom there is toothpaste on the light
    fixtures, water all over the floor, a dog drinking out of the
    toilet and body hair forming a union to protest unsafe
    working conditions.

    16. You buy cereal with marshmallows in it.

    17. The closest you get to gourmet cooking is making rice
    crispies bars.

    Happy father's day,

        thanks Marcel,

        Now that we are grandparents, we look back fondly on those memories and lol when we hear our daughter and son-in-law complain about the same things. A great list that also applies to grandparents babysitting overnight.

          Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
          That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

          If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

          The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

          You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
