Famous Sayings by My Kids

I got the idea for this post from Helene who blogs at I’m Living Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor where she writes about her life with two sets of twins. She asked her kids to finish some famous sayings, with hillarious results, so I thought I’d see what mine came up with. Here are their answers. Keep in mind that Logan is only 4 1/2 and Lila is 3, and while it is obvious they didn’t quite catch what I wanted them to do, some of the answers did come out funny.

Logan’s answers:

Don’t change horses….for the temple.

Strike while the… (he had  no answer for this one)

It’s always darkest before….school starts. (This was my favorite one.)

Never underestimate the power of….God.

You can lead a horse to water but…she can drink it.

Don’t bite the hand…that’s very bad.

No news is…penned.

A miss is as good as a…ball.

You can’t teach an old dog….walking.

If you lie down with dogs…you have to go to sleep.

Love all, trust….(points to mouth). Yeah, trust your mouth.

The pen is mightier than the…bee.

An idle mind is….a bath find.

Where there’s smoke there’s….happiness.

Happy the bride who…be’s so sweet.

A penny saved is…a coin.

Two’s company, three’s….a three.

Don’t put off till tomorrow what…God is saying.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…get into bed.

There are none so blind as…you can’t see.

Children should be seen and not…mean.

If at first you don’t succeed….you don’t bleed.

You get out of something only what you….need.

When the blind lead the blind…you get lost.
.

A bird in the hand…is a quail.

Better late than….it’s not better to get up then.

Lila’s answers: (she quite obviously didn’t get what we were doing.)

Don’t change horses….cows. Cows eat grass.

Strike while the…elephant eats grass.

It’s always darkest before….we wake up.

Never underestimate the power of….the power go off.

Don’t bite the hand…you broke it.

No news is…a present.

A miss is as good as a…to catch the ball.

You can’t teach an old dog….to get the man and the kitties.

If you lie down with dogs…you bark and bite.

Love all, trust….the mirror.

The pen is mightier than the…scissors.

An idle mind is….an egg car, like a chicken.

Where there’s smoke there’s…the cats.

Happy the bride who…ride the horse.

A penny saved is…I don’t know.

Two’s company, three’s….a black pin.

Don’t put off till tomorrow what…7, 14, 19

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and…get up and show your ouchie, like this one here. (Shows me her ouchie.)

There are none so blind as…the car.

Children should be seen and not…on a train.

If at first you don’t succeed….owl flies.

You get out of something only what you….do cooking.

When the blind lead the blind…it’s big enough.

A bird in the hand…is fly away to the nest with the baby bird.

Better late than….the train talking.

  2. I agree with Sarah Kate – Lila's answers struck me as especially funny. Although I agree with Logan about the attraction of getting into bed when crying!
