My parents used to say this every time we went on a family trip or family outing. Every. Time. They would chuckle to themselves and my brother, sister and I would be like what is so funny about that, we don’t get it.
Guess what mom and dad? I totally get it now.
Family vacations are the BEST but moving 3 kids from A to B happens at a turtle’s pace, even if they are excited about where we are going.
So I carry on the tradition of shouting “and we’re off like a herd of turtles” while my kids exchange puzzled looks.
One day, kids, you’ll get the joke too…
