The Toddler Property Law

If I like it, it’s mine.

If it’s in my hand, it’s mine.

If I can take it from you, it’s mine.

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

If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.

If it fits in my mouth, it’s mine.

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

If it looks just like my mine, it’s mine.

—University of Minnesota, Variety Club, Children’s Hospital

Ascending Clouds, 2017
