    I think Joel would not have you as #20 on his list of “mines”. You would probably rate a #1! I love the picture. I want it to be mine!

    LOL! When Peter was around this age, I bought him a t-shirt entitled “The Toddler Laws of Property” (can you guess it was from a catalog for lawyers?!). It went something like this: If it’s mine, it’s mine. If it’s yours, it’s mine. If I see it, it’s mine. If I’m holding it, it’s mine. If I’ve touched it in the last 3 hours, it’s mine.

    I’m sure Joel looks stunning in your, er, his pink sequined flip flops.

  • Ethan seems to be mainly possessive of anything I am eating. Once he is eating it, however, it becomes less worthy and is usually ejected. I want to find that shirt Shayne mentions.

    Of all his belongings he is most fortunate to have #20.

  • Well, when you are two (or almost two) all you see is yours, if you like it – it’s yours, if you want it – it’s yours.

    Yeah, kinda like everything?

    How can Joel be 21 months old??? That was fast. With that sweet face I would let him own anything that he wants!
