A Child's Property Laws

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 appear to be yours in any way.
6. If I'm doing or building something,
all the pieces are mine.
7. If it looks just like mine, it IS 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!

How come it takes so little time
for a child who is afraid of the dark
to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?!

Mom. . .Dad. . . Don't worry.
I've got it all under control. . .
With my tongue!
