I actually told Middle to shut up yesterday. Which then provided permission of sorts to Oldest to then say, "Yeah Mid shut up." Um, yeah. "Old don't say that. I am sorry Mid that was not nice of me to say. We don't say that to each other."
After the incident just described, this is what was going on inside my head.

Here is a question
Have you ever seen a cat gallop?
I have. It usually happens when I need to leave for work and Kitty gallops back into the house like a horse, causing me to lunge after him. It is a lot of fun.
