Notepad: Many of the answers in this crossword are one letter too long and won't fit in the spaces provided. Each of these answers will either begin or end in the gray square immediately before or after it. When the puzzle is done, all the gray squares will have been used exactly once, and the letters in them (reading left to right, line by line) will spell an old Jewish proverb.
Jim Horne notes:
The quote: "A mother understands what a child does not say."
