Do your kids know the endings to famous proverbs? I’m sure they are all familiar with an easy one like, “the early bird gets the worm,” but what about the more obscure proverbs that we don’t say all that often? We might even forget that we know them until we read them in a book or hear them spoken randomly in a conversation. Kids have a funny way of looking at the world and seeing it for what it is right at that moment. They don’t seem to look to the future in the way that adults do…and that led to some pretty hilarious “words of wisdom!”
These are so funny! Straight-forward, to the point…and above everything else, totally true. They might not represent why these proverbs were invented in the first place, but I could live by most of these without any trouble. Which one was your favorite? I loved #16. It made me laugh. “A penny saved is a penny earned,” but really, he’s right. It isn’t much.
