Life Philosophy From the Mind of an 8 Year Old

For Christmas my oldest son "A" presented us with a calendar that he made at school. Each month the calendar had a different popular saying or phrase. The begining of the phrase was already on the calendar and the child had to complete it.

For example: Don't count your chickens... before they hatch.
A stitch in time... saves nine.

You get the idea.

Most of A's responses were rather mundane except for one. October's phrase.

If at first you don't succeed... you're hopeless!

That pretty much somes up A's attitude toward life. I'm raising a real overachiever.
