Oh, My Kids

Recently Mari did a post with some familiar, and not so familiar, sayings, and how they were completed by first graders. Just for fun, I thought I'd run them by my kids, just finishing up 3rd, 6th and 9th grades. In their defense, they did get some of them exactly right, so I didn't even bother to put those down. I just put the ones down that were funny...but, I didn't tell you who said what.

Except that I will tell you that Caboose doesn't think much of kissing.

Unless you get married.

Which he never plans on doing.

Except when I asked him before I did this post he said, "I might." Although I don't know how he's going to get around the kissing part.

Okay, here goes:

People in glass houses shouldn't . . . get undressed without having any blinds.
. . . dance naked.
. . . sing bad that would break the glass.

Strike while the . . . moon is up.

Never underestimate the power of . . . pink.
. . . youth.
. . . love.
. . . babies.

You can lead a horse to water but . . . you can't lead water to the horse.

Laugh and the world laughs with you . . . cry and the world cries with you.
. . . don't laugh otherwise.

A miss is as good as a . . . mister.
. . . guess.
. . . strike.

A bird in the hand . . . eats crackers.

The pen is mightier than . . . the pig.
. . . the mouth.

An idle mind is . . . stupid.

Where there is smoke, there is . . . cigarettes.

Happy is the bride who . . . kisses the man.

Children should be seen and not . . . kissed.

You get out of something what you . . . paid for it.

When the blind lead the blind . . . they run into a tree.

Seems a little bit like what my kids were doing with each other. Good thing there were no trees in the house.
