Toddler's creed

This isn't original (I don't know who wrote it) but I thought it was worth sharing.

The Toddler's Creed

If I want it, it's mine.
If I give it to you and then change my mind, it's mine.
If I can take it away from you by force, it's mine.
If we are playing with something together, then all the pieces are mine.
If it looks just like the one I used to own or have at home, it's mine.

When you think about it, and how attached we become to our possessions, maybe we are still two-year-old toddlers, deep inside.

Sure we are. We just learn better filters, is all. Or, at least, most people do.

As long as we don't still drop to our bellies and beat the floor with our fists and feet! ;^)
