Overheard at Zoo Atlanta

mom to two kids, ages 3 and 4 maybe, "come on, let's go"

the kids don't respond

mom, "let's go see the next animal"

no response from kids

mom, "ok, pirate's code."

mom walks off and kids, without a second's hesitation, follow.


My 'last-minute' word is "Monkeys" I have 5 children ranging from 10 yrs down to 10 months.. if I say Monkeys it means stop it immediately. They can't be little monkeys because it means I'm a momma monkey -- and I'm NOT a momma monkey ;-)
