Toddler Property Law

I found this whilst tidying up and it certainly rings true to me from my experience of toddlers!
  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, ever, appear in any way to be yours
  6. If I'm doing or building with something, all 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 it and put it down, it's mine
  10. If it's broken, it's yours

This made me laugh - we're going through this stage at the moment!

My Pastor said this at church one time, and they replayed it when he passed away. ~We love you Charlie Matthews.
