Are they all yours???

Mommy duck with her brood of five!

Armed with my "free family admission" coupon, I took my kids to the local zoo. I stepped up to the counter, showed my coupon and smiled at the nice lady behind the counter. She looked at me and my children and said, "Is this all one family?"

"Yes," I replied.

"These are all YOUR children?" she responded in a mildly disbelieving tone.

"Yes," I repeated.

"You are the mother of all these children?" she asked once again.

"These are all my children, I promise," I answered once again, this time with a little less patience!

Finally she let us in. As we were walking, my son turned to me and asked, "Why didn't she think we were all your kids?"

Honestly son, I am still trying to figure that out!!!
