Mine, Mine, MINE!
June 27, 2010 - Jennifer Brookens
One thing that gets irritating about being a parent of small children is that nothing is sacred. From our daughter who automatically asks, "Can I use your laptop," anytime she sees it unattended, to the "me too" I hear anytime I get a snack for myself, there is nothing that is "mine" anymore. Heck, when I went into my daughter's school at the end of the year, half the things I found in the Lost and Found were items that I was missing! Barrettes, hats, earmuffs, and a necklace I SWORE I told her "no" when she asked if she could play with it. I can forget about keeping any gum or mints in my purse, and my make-up is a draw for both kids... The Girl uses it to be pretty while the Boy literally draws and paints with it.
And how funny is it that when I offer my kids healthy snacks like apples, raisins or nuts, they want nothing to do with it. But when I'm having those same snacks I offered them just a few minutes before, guess who I have standing by with the beggar's look in their eyes...
So I figured it out by finding the Official Children's Laws of Property...
1. If I like it, it's mine.
