My Kids Would Never Say This

Kids 1There is a little neighborhood newspaper that shows up in our mailbox once a month. The October issue had this funny tidbit.

An elementary school teacher gave her class the first part of a well-know saying and asked the students to finish them. Oh yeah…

These responses all came from first-graders.

Teachers                                                       Students

●    Don’t change horses…                          until they stop running
●    Strike while the…                                  bug is close
●    It’s always darkest before…                 Daylight Saving Time
●    Never underestimate the power of… termites

Kids 2
●    You can lead a horse to water but…   how?
●    Don’t bite the hand that…                    looks dirty
●    No news is…                                            impossible
●    A miss is as good as a…                         Mr.
●    You can’t teach an old dog new…        math
●    If you lie down with dogs, you’ll…      stink in the morning
●    Love all, trust…                                       me
●    The pen is mightier than the…            pigs
●    An idle mind is…                                    the best way to relax

Kids 3
●    Happy the bride who…                          gets all the presents
●    A penny saved is…                                  not much
●    Don’t put off till tomorrow what…      you put on to go to bed
●    Children should be seen and not…      spanked or grounded
●    If at first you don’t succeed…                get new batteries

Kids 4
●    When the blind lead the blind…           get out of the way
●    Better late than…                                     pregnant


Can you believe it, six-year-olds?
