John Baur and Mark Summers decided over ten years ago that September 19 should be Talk Like a Pirate Day. If you have kids over two years old, however, every day is probably Talk Like a Pirate Day. Our house is full of pirates — and although they may occasionally change into Robin Hood and Little John, animals from the jungle, or superheroes, swashbuckling pirates still have a strong hold on our house. ARRR!
