He Who Laughs Last, Laughs The Hardest

From the 6 year-old:

A rose by any other name would be a tulip.

A chain is only as strong as metal.

A fool and his money are teamwork.

A good man is a nice man.

A leopard can’t change its name.

A penny saved is in the piggybank.

A picture is worth at least $2.

A poor workman always blames it on the other workmen.

A problem shared is sharing.

A rolling stone gathers snow or dirt.

A thing of beauty is beautiful.

A watched pot never drops.

A woman’s place is a nail polish store.

All good things come to your heart.

All that glitters is sparkly things.

All you need is happiness. (This makes my heart swell!)

An ounce of prevention is worth a dollar.

Ask a silly question and you’ll get a silly answer.

You’ve made your bed so neatly.

Beauty is only a funny word.

Behind every great man is a woman. (What a smart little guy!) 

Boys will be big one day.

Don’t bite the hand that you have on your body.

Don’t count your chickens before they are laying their eggs.

Don’t cut off your nose to smell anything.

Don’t put all your eggs in a pan.

Don’t put the cart somewhere else.

Don’t teach your Grandma to play tag.

Don’t throw the baby she’ll crack her head!

Every cloud has big puffy white stuff.

Everything comes to him who sits down.

He who laughs last, laughs really hard.

By 4 year-old:

A rose by any other name would be another flower.

A chain is only as strong as cement.

A fool and his money are rich.

A good man is a nice man.

A leopard can’t change its self.

A penny saved is lots of money.

A picture is worth 2 pictures or more.

A poor workman always blames a lady.

A problem shared is still a problem.

A rolling stone gathers more stones.

A thing of beauty is a rose.

A watched pot never drops.

A woman’s place is in a tower. (He had just finished playing a video game where he was trying to rescue the princess in the tower.)

All good things come to princesses . . . .or me.

All that glitters is glue.

All you need is good things.

An ounce of prevention is worth lots of money.

Ask a silly question and you’ll get many more silly questions.

You’ve made your bed, neatly.  I did.

Beauty is only mommy.  I guess.

Behind every great man is a woman.

Better the devil you know than smovel. (a made-up bad guy)

Boys will be a boy. 

Don’t bite the hand that you are wearing.

Don’t count your chickens before they are are lined up nicely.

Don’t cut off your nose to smell.

Don’t put all your eggs in a basket.

Don’t put the cart under a car.

Don’t teach your Grandma to jump in the lake.

Don’t throw the baby on the floor.

Every cloud has puffy stuff on it.

Everything comes to him who is nice to others. (Proof that he does listen to my sermons!)

He who laughs last, is funny.

  1. So so funny and sweet. This says so much about how straightforwardly children view the world. Of course you shouldn’t count your chickens until they are lined up!
