Was in mysore over the weekend and found this at the Exhibition grounds opposite the Mysore Palace.

I am sure they meant " to be moms " .

way is a noun, yes. Family (in that context) is an adjective.

Or what else did I get wrong? You guys have got me worried now!

You can often catch me out on my spelling, which is dredful!

In the family way is very old-fashioned. Dates back to days when people didn't like to actually say words like "pregnant!"

Oh! If only I had known!

My fingers seem to have developed a strange sort of dyslexia on the keyboard!

Thanks. Sometimes, however hard one looks, it is impossible to spot one's own mistakes.

Soon, I think I'll be qualified for a job as a local sign writer
