A Toddler’s Rules of Possesion

by Mama Chocolate on September 3, 2011

1. If I like it, it’s mine.

2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine.

3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine.

4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.

5. If it’s mine, it must NEVER appear to be yours in anyway.

6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.

7. If it looks just like mine, it is mine.

8. If I saw it first, it’s mine.

9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.

10. If it’s broken, it’s yours.

Hi! Stopping by from the blog hop and I am now a new follower of your blog thru GFC, Twitter and RSS Feed. I cannot follow thru FB right now because of a crazy error on FB’s end and they have me blocked. I have a post on my blog from 8/20 called New Weekend Blog Hops where I explain what happened so I don’t take up too much space here. I have left it up to everyone to decide how they want to handle FB. You can either follow me now or wait and let me come back when FB has resolved this issue and then follow me. Either way is fine with me. I don’t want anyone thinking I won’t follow back. If you do, please leave me a comment that you did. I will be going back thru all of them over the last couple weeks and making sure I have followed all of those who already followed me. Thanks for your help and patience. Have a great day!

In honor of my son, I would add if my sister has it, it’s mine.

This also applies to preschoolers.

I remember reading this when my first was a toddler and laughing my head off, and it is still funny today! And true!
Fun blog..children, chores, and chocolate all being major factors in my life!
Glad to find you through a bloghop and look forward to following your musings.

And now I need to go find a skinny person to eat….

This is hilarious…and so true! My daughter thinks every toy in the house is hers. Forget about sharing with her little brothers!
