Proverbial Wisdom

At the end of every school year, my mom gives her kindergarten students a list of the first halves of common proverbs. The students then fill in the second half. Here's some of what this year's kids had to say (their words are italicized and spelled exactly as they wrote them):

You can lead a horse to water but he will splash water on you.

No news is in the male box.

You can't teach an old dog to play video gams.

Where there's smoke, there's sigrix (cigarettes).

A penny saved is in my cut off sock (the girl who wrote this saves her money in a sock).

Two's company, three can not fit.

Don't put off until tomorrow what is bad.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you; cry and say good bye to your friend.

Children should be seen and not spankt.

If at first you don't succeed will have a bad day.

When the blind lead the blind thae bump into the wol.

Better late than school.

So there you have it. Aren't they so smart? I'm going to miss them so much!
