Wisdom of a Five-year-old

Oct 29, 2010 Uncategorized 22 comments

“The first rule of the game is to not get killed by the bad guys. Cause if you get killed, you’re dead. And that’s bad.”

Happy Halloween everyone! Have a great weekend, and don’t get sick eating too much candy. (It’s the mom in me. I have to say it!) πŸ˜€

  1. That is great advice. I'm going to be extra careful now.

  2. Can't argue with that logic! I wish I'd written more of my children's best lines down.

    If you get a chance, stop by my blog "Substitute Teacher's Saga". From 10/28-11/1 I'm hosting a Halloween Haunting. There are prizes!

    Lol, that is awesome! It sounds like something my nephew would say.

  8. Yeah, good logic. Living: good. Dying: bad. But at least if you're dead you're not awake to know you're dead, right?

    Love it. I hope you're writing down all these great lines to show him when he's all grown up.

    Surely I'm not the only mom who has already started nibbling on the candy we bought to hand out? πŸ˜€
