THE TODDLER’S RULES OF POSSESSION

By UNKNOWN

  1. If I like it, it’s MINE.
  2. If it’s in my hands, 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 any way.
  6. If I’m doing or building something, all of the pieces are MINE.
  7. If it looks like mine, it’s 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 still MINE.
    *There! I made a slight change to the rule.

My chips in the cupboard.
Niko: MINE
Papa’s racing wheel.
Niko: MINE
Nate’s pacifier (that he never uses).
Niko: MINE
Everything with dinosaurs.
Niko: MINE
The dipper I use to water the plants.
Niko: MINE (and he always ends up watering all my plants a certain plant over and over before I FORCE him to go to the next one.) 🀦
*Yes, the word is FORCE because the words TELL or ASK are not in his vocabulary.

An Asian mermaid lost in transition.

I live in an enchanted forest at the end of a rainbow. I have a little window in my room where I can see unicorns playing in the grass field at day and magical fairies dancing under the silvery moon at night.
