You would think that one little monkey in my house would know this story very well! However, it turns out that when this certain little monkey is influenced by an older monkey* (or so he says), the little monkey WILL jump on the bed, and he WILL fall off and bump his...
And he will cry and cry, and it will swell a bit and he will limp around like a pitiful little monkey. Aww! And the mama monkey (who is not very sympathetic towards the monkey who jumped on the bed after many warnings not to do so) will take the little monkey to the doctor who will take an x-ray of the foot and tell them, "Whew! It's not broken, but he does have a bad sprain."
And the little monkey will get a sticker and some Motrin and a whole day off school for a little TLC.
In the meantime, the mama monkey, the daddy monkey and the doctor monkey
NO more monkeys jumping on the bed!!!
And they lived happily ever after.
