    I couldn't find an appropriate picture. Consider for a moment that the child in the picture was actually running and I just caught him.

    The child was caught between my legs while trying to run through them.

    Re: through between legs

    I though I made it clear, but I wasn't trying to describe the picture. I just attached it in case my descriptions were vague. The sentences I'm concerned with are the ones numbered in my first post.

    I wanted to describe what the child likes to do. The post where I described the child as being caught was my attempt at crafting a story as to why the picture doesn’t actually show the child running.

    Edit: I didn't mean this for you Rover. Something came up as I was typing this post and so it was sent late, before I saw your post.

    Re: through between legs

    You can't write through between without a comma between the words.

    Re: through between legs

    Perhaps your title should have been "through/between legs" or "through legs or between legs".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
