Two things we've said in the past three days that you would NEVER think to say (unless you had a toddler):

  • "The animals will run away from people who cry."
  • "Lobsters don't want to see you unless you have pants on."

Not sure about the accuracy of these statements, and since the animals aren't talking, Zoey has no choice but to believe what we're telling her. Hey, it got us into the zoo without further fussing, and it got us into Wal-Mart with a kid wearing actual pants. All's well that ends well.
