Advice from Aidan

Like we did with Dane, we asked Aidan to "fill in the blank" on a few classic sayings. Here's what the A-man came up with:

Don't change horses...pet them. (Does anyone know how this quote is supposed to end? I've never heard it. But I like Aidan's version.)
Strike while the...dog barks. (And hide your dogs, because apparently Aidan wants to strike them.)
It's always darkest before...the sunlight (And Aidan would know, he's usually awake before the sunlight.)
Never underestimate the power of...God. (indeed)
Don't bite the hand that...is strong. (because that one will probably choke you for biting it.)
No news is...not fun. (wha...)
A miss is as good as a...guy (as in Miss, Mister... I love this kid)
You can't teach an old dog...to poop outside (but you can teach little boys to pee outside)
If you lie down with dogs, you'll...get bitten. (Why are so many of these d0g-themed?)
Love all, trust...God. (smart boy)
The pen is mightier than the...pencil. (b0th Dane and Aidan answered this one the same)
An idle mind is...crazy! (!!)
Happy is the bride who...kisses. (I'm so glad he stopped at "kisses")
A penny saved...has George Washington on it? (no, Lincoln actually)
Two's company, three's...a party. (good to know, I'll remember this for his birthday bash this year. Smaller guest list.)
Don't put off till tomorrow what...is cool. (great advice)
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and...they cry. (possibly...)
There are none so blind as...an old man. (I actually giggled on this one)
If at first you don't succeed...play video games. (Brandon laughed at this one.)
A bird in the hand...was scared. (that would be pretty scary for the bird.)
and my favorite...
When the blind lead the blind...they all die. (especially if they're leading them over a cliff)

So what did we learn from Aidan? Hide the dogs. If you're blind, don't follow other blind people. It may not work out for you. And don't EVER put off till tomorrow what is cool.

Any word on whether you can teach a little boy NOT to poop outside?

Dont change horses...midstream! Something about not changing your plans once you have started.

Aidan did NOT need to be taught to pee outside.... The boy is a natural...
