Words of Wisdom

Sierra's teacher makes a book for the parents for a Christmas present every year.  The book is called "Words of Wisdom," and is a book of idioms -with a little twist.  Thought I would share life's lessons through the eyes of first graders.

A penny saved is... a doll.
You wear your heart...in your body.
You can lead a horse to water but...it will run away.
You scratch my back and... you scratch baby's back.
Can't see the forest...because there's a secret force field.
I can have my cake and...share it with my brother.
The squeaky wheel gets...squeakier.
A watched pot never...burns up food.
Better late than...to go to bed.
It's bark is worse than... a baby's scream.
Don't bite the hand that... is a person's hand.
Don't put all your eggs in... a fish bowl.
Beggars can't be...good.
You can't judge a book...cause it can't do anything.
As you make your bed so shall you...get dressed.
Up a creek without a...lake of water.
A rolling stone gathers...what I can't.
When the cat's away...they run.
A picture is worth... 25 cents.
Don't make a mountain out of...books.
The bigger they are...the smarter they get.
A stitch in time...is quick.
All that glitters...makes it sparkle.
A bird in the hand...said "cheep cheep."  It meant hello hello.
Don't cry over...the couch.  Please don't cry!
Out of the frying pan...came a talking waffle.
