Words of wisdom

Both my daughters are equally able to surprise me with the things they say, as you would expect from a 2 and a 5 year old, but today it's been the elder whose words of wisdom(?) have stuck in my mind.
When writing her name she often writes the 's' backwards, as it would look if you glanced in a mirror, usually I tend to let this go but after hearing a comment about it I decided to ask her about it: "Yes that's very neat, did you know you've written the 's' back-to-front?" She replied quite quickly, telling me that:"I have to write it like that because if I make the 's' face the 'y' then they fight with each other."
Battling letters, an intriguing concept I think.
