Children are the Future

A week or so ago i posted some ‘golden’ Truths from an elderly perspective…

This week it is the younger generations turn to Spread the Wisdom.


Great Truths That Children Have Learned

1)  When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don’t let her brush your hair.

2) If your sister hits you, don’t hit her back. They always catch the second person.

3) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.

4) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.

5) Don’t sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.

6) You can’t trust dogs to watch your food.

7) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.

8 ) No matter how hard you try, you can’t baptize cats.  😀


  1. 8 ) is one of the funniest things I have read in awhile, I am sure the cat was not as amused. Also I am not a fan of cats. My guess is that as the spawn of Satan, God would not let any cat be baptized. 🙂

    4) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.

    I had lunch last week with a friend who lives with two cats. She still has the scars from when she tried to untangle her cat from some string.

    7) You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.

    That’s pretty funny too, except any of the kids I know are a lot more original. Of course all you need is a dog. Mine would eat anything, and it didn’t have to be organic.

    My and my cousin painted the family dog green. Poor Bart just sat their and let us. I guess there is something to be said for the independance of cats, versus the loyality of dogs.


  2. Ed – # 8 was my favourite also 🙂

    being very much a ‘dog-person’ i can empathise with your perspective.

    Even so i can vouch for the truth of #6 for myself 😉

    Dogs are very loyal but an unguarded meal is ‘fair game’ in their opinion .

    Bart probably was happy with the deal of being painted green in return for some attention and a free meal 😉

    Cats in my experience seem to feel like you OWE them a meal and whine if it is not out in time or to their personal ‘taste’ and any form of bathing them in water is an affront to their own ability to lick themselves clean.
