Rules of Toddlerhood

What’s mine is mine.
What’s yours is mine.
If it looks like something of mine, it’s mine.
If I want it, it’s mine.
If YOU want it, it’s mine.
If I had it 30 seconds ago, it’s mine.
If I had it 30 minutes ago, it’s mine.

Did I leave anything out?

    It reminds me of that Billy Connolly comedy sketch about women: "I want it NOW, I want it YESTERDAU…and STAY AWAKE, because the rules will ALL change tomorrow!"

    Hehe! Very good. I can think of a couple more that work in my house…If you tell me it's not mine, it is more emphatically mine.Even if I don't want it, it's still mine and no one else can have it.That's all I can think of….

    How about this one: If it is on my plate, I will not eat it but will throw/mash in hair/feed to the dogs. But if it is on your plate (even if the exact same food) it is delicious and I MUST eat it! If you take food from your plate and put on mine, it is no longer fit for consumption.

    Stopping by from the Mom Pledge blog. 🙂 Don't forget — I know I love hot dogs, but I refuse to eat this one unless I can eat (Fill in the blank) first. 🙂
