Kid Wisdom

You get to be in the front row seats for every spontaneous performance your own little comedian performs each day and night. Most of the time, they have no idea how funny and entertaining they are.

One first grade teacher thought it would be great to harvest some of the innocent humor that spills from the mouths of the wee folk. She also wanted to see just how much her 26 students knew about common, everyday sayings.

So she gave them the first part of several well-known proverbs and asked them to fill in the rest. The results were priceless. Here is what these inventive six-year-olds came up with:

1. Don’t change horses…

until they stop running.

2. Strike while the…

bug is close.

3. It’s always darkest…

before Daylight Savings Time.

4. Never underestimate the power of...

termites.

5. You can lead a horse to water but…

how?

6. Don’t bite the hand…

that looks dirty.

7. No news is…

impossible.

8. A miss is as good as…

a  Mr.

9. You can’t teach an old dog…

new math.

10. If you lie down with dogs, you’ll…

stink in the morning.

11. Love all, trust…

me.

12. The pen is mightier than the…

pigs.

13. An idle mind is…

the best way to relax.

14. Where there’s smoke there’s…

pollution.

15. Happy the bride who…

gets all the presents.

16. A penny saved is…

not much.

17. Two’s company, three’s…

the Musketeers.

18. Don’t put off till tomorrow what…

you put on to go to bed.

19. Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and…

you have to blow your nose.

20. There are none so blind as…

Stevie Wonder

21. Children should be seen and not…

spanked or grounded.

22. If at first you don’t succeed…

get new batteries.

23. You get out of something only what you…

see on the picture box.

24. When the blind lead the blind…

get out of the way.

25. A bird in the hand…

is going to poop on you.

pregnant (our personal favorite).
