A woman walks into the downtown welfare office.

"Wow!!!", the social worker exclaims. "Are they all yours?" 

"Yep, they're all mine!", the flustered momma sighs after having heard that question a thousand times before.
She says, "sit down, Terry."

All the children rush to find seats.

"Well" says the social worker you must be here to sign up for assistance."
"I'll need all your children's names."

"Well, to keep it simple, the boys are all named Terry and the girls are named Terri." 

In disbelief, the case worker says, "are you serious; they're all named Terry?"

Their momma replied, "Well, yes...it makes it easier".
"When it's time to get them out of bed to get ready for school, I yell Terry!"

When it's time for dinner, I just yell Terry and they all come a running.!  "When It's time to stop the kid who is running into the street, I just yell, Terry, and they all stop dead in their tracks."

"It's the smartest idea I ever had, Naming them all Terry."

The social worker thinks this over for several moments then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively,

"But what if you want just one kid to come and not the whole bunch?"

Momma says without skipping a beat,
"Then I call them by their last names".
