The Toddler's Creed
The Toddler's Creed was composed by T. Berry Brazelton and I've had a newspaper clipping of it on my wall for a quarter century. I decided to paint it yesterday, it took a ridiculous amount of time.
- If I want it, it's mine.
- If I give it to you and change my mind later, it's mine.
- If I can take it away from you, it's mine.
- If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
- If it's mine, it will never belong to anybody else, no matter what.
- If we are building something together, all the pieces are mine.
- If it looks just like mine, it is mine.
