Have you ever heard the phrase, "Out of the mouth of babes?" Certainly you have. It comes from the simple truth that sometimes it takes a child to reveal lasting wisdom. It seems foolish but it isn’t! For example:

Patrick, age 10, said, "Never trust a dog to watch your food."

Michael, 14, said, "When your dad is mad and asks you, "Do I look stupid?" don’t answer him."

Michael, wise man that he was also said, "Never tell your mom her diet’s not working."

Randy, 9 years of age said, "Stay away from prunes." One wonders how he discovered that bit of wisdom.

Kyoyo, age 9, said, "Never hold a dust buster and a cat at the same time."

Naomi, 15 said, "If you want a kitten, start out by asking for a horse."

Lauren, age 9 said, "Felt tip markers are not good to use as lipstick."

Joel, 10 years old, said, "Don’t pick on your sister when she’s holding a baseball bat."

Eileen, age 8 said, "Never try to baptize a cat."
