Joseph (while aiming a toy bow and arrow at my head while I'm fixing dinner): Are you an outlaw?!
Joseph: Then you must be an in-law!!
Betsy came to me in her Upwards uniform and asked:
Betsy: Mom, what does this say?
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:)
