All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

by Robert Fulghum
Most of what I really need
To know about how to live
And what to do and how to be
I learned in kindergarten.
Wisdom was not at the top
Of the graduate school mountain,
But there in the sandpile at Sunday school.

These are the things I learned:

Share everything.
Play fair.
Don't hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don't take things that aren't yours.
Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life -
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work everyday some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder. I think I just might wear a bowl upside down on my head dangled with fruitloops

What fetching millinery! Too precious.

I learned all those things too. How come then, I forgot some of those things as I grew old?

Such wise words! I think I may copy them and put them on my pin board! Lovely sweet photos! x

Don't be fooled these pint sized thugs. They are the doyennes of a new crime syndicate called the 'Mortar Board Munchkins' and those aren't friutloops, they're painted kneecaps! Lock your doors, you have been warned!

I'd be crying the whole time watching these darlings graduate. Look at the pride in her face - priceless.
