The Things They Say

Joseph (while aiming a toy bow and arrow at my head while I'm fixing dinner): Are you an outlaw?!

Me: No.

Joseph: Then you must be an in-law!!

Betsy came to me in her Upwards uniform and asked:

Betsy: Mom, what does this say?

Me: Upwards.

Betsy: "How come Lydia's shirt says something different. Her letters go the other way."

(It took me a second to figure out what she meant.)

Me: Oh, the letters are the same, but yours seem backwards because of the way you're looking at them.

Betsy did a 180 and turned so that her back was to me.

Betsy: Nope. They're still backwards mom.

Joseph was whining and running in small circles like a puppy chasing his tail and pulling at the back of his shirt.

Me: Joseph, stop. What is the matter with you?

Joseph: There is a ticket following me! (aka his shirt tag:)

Want to read other funny things kids are saying. Go to Mary's for Tiny Talk Tuesday.

Now you wouldn't want to be an IN-law! :-) The upside down and backwards letters just reminds us that their perspective is sooooo different from ours! How cute!
Just found your blog - LOVE the title photo and verse!
