A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

12. The pen is mightier than the pigs.
13. An idle mind is the best way to relax.
14. Where there's smoke there's pollution.

Here is a true story about my 6 year old daughter.
My grandma had died and she had an open casket for family viewing only. I was really concerned about what my daughter would say when she saw Great Grandma in the casket. She came in the room, glanced at the casket and announced quite jollily, "I know where GG is," while we kind of held our breath for the rest of the sentence. She finished her statement saying, "She is up in heaven." We thought it was pretty smart that she figured out that GG was not in her body but had passed on to a better place.

My mom tells the story of my siblings and I spent the weekend at my grandmother's house when my mom was in the hospital having the youngest brother (I think we were about 6,4,and 3) and when she was fixing breakfast she burnt the toast and my older sister (the 4 yr old) told grandma she didn't like chocolate toast.

Every morning my husband brings me coffee in bed. It is well known and a standing joke that I must have my coffee or I can't function.
Last fall he took an overnight trip out of town.
At 5am my then 3 and 4 year old daughters woke me up with Coffee Cake. Their recipe
Bag of sugar
Bag of flour
Half can of coffee
Mix all ingredients together on kitchen floor. Place on paper plate and deliver to mom in bed.
No need to bake.

Actually after I sat down on the floor and cried and my 4 year old asked if they were happy tears (I think I was laughing and crying at the same time) I did take a taste.Very Bad! We spent the entire day cleaning up (HUGE MESS) and then made cup cakes.
Even after steam cleaning the carpet I still have little girl foot prints that lead from the kitchen to my bedroom. Stain just will not come out. Carpet guy said the only thing we can do is change the carpet.

When I told my daughter where babies come from, she scrunched up her nose and was clearly thinking very hard. Then she says, "I don't ever remember seeing you and Dad do that!"

On the way to school this morning my 5 year old daughter asked "Mama how old will I be when I fall in love?" "Oh hopefully sometime around when you're 20 or 25 when you're all grown up." I said.
"Well when I grow up I sure hope I grow up and fall in love with my friend Dally. (This is a little boy in her class)
I just smiled and said "Maybe so".
After she went inside I sat in the car with tears in my eyes. My baby has her first crush!

My son was in Grade 5 when they started to have "the talk" at school. I told him that once he seen the film, I am open to any questions that he may have. So, when he came home, I ask him how it went. He expressed his concerns over me having eggs and thought that if I don't conceive, do I go into the bathroom and lay them like a chicken!!!
