Never underestimate the power of....jumping cats??
Posted May 29 2012 7:30am
Recently, my father-in-law sent me a cute e-mail in which a teacher gave her 1st grade students the first half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb, in their own words.
Of course, my first thought was, "This would make for an awesome blog post!" and I asked my kids to complete the same proverbs...just knowing it would be absolutely entertaining!
Here's what they come up with....
Don't change horses....until they want to be changed.
Strike while the...umpire isn't looking.
It's always darkest before....8:41 pm
Never underestimate the power of....jumping cats.
You can lead a horse to water but...make sure it doesn't kick the water bucket.
Don't bite the hand...that your cat licked.
No news is...that you didn't pay for the newspaper so that's why you have no news.
A miss is as good as a....Mrs.
You can't teach an old dog....to not pee on the carpet.
If you lie down with dogs...you'll get sick.

Where there's smoke there's....some stupid kid who played with matches.
Happy the bride who...gets to eat cake and open presents.
A penny saved is...not a whole lot.
Two's company, three's....triplets.
Don't put off till tomorrow what...your mother tells you to do now.
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and...you'll just make everyone sad.
There are none so blind as...the 3 Blind Mice.

You get out of something only what you....think should be in it.
When the blind lead the blind....get the heck out of the way.

If you enjoyed this, feel free to ask your own children to finish the same proverbs (or any others you can come up with)! And let me know so I can stop by and read their answers!!
