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.

             Every season has a reason

             — even a blanket of snow

             keeps plants and trees warm.

"Your living is 

determined not so much 

by what life brings to you as by 

the attitude you bring to life; not so 

much by what happens to you as 

by the way your mind looks 

at what happens."


—Khalil Gibran
