Where does he come up with this stuff?

While on our trip this weekend we had a playdate with some friends.  Our friends did a lovely job sharing a big backpack full of toys and my kids were in heaven.  I didn’t realize how much Rosebud was enjoying their toys until we got back to our hotel room and I unpacked the diaper bag. 

And found a book and some toys that were definitely not ours.

Me: “Rosebud, how did these toys get in here?”

Rosebud: “Uh oh”

Despite doing my best work on google, I’ve yet to find a good book on how to teach your toddler not to be a thief.

Yesterday at school a teacher absent-mindedly put her purse within toddler reach.  Rosebud-the-swiper dashed over there and had her cubby fingers in that purse before I could blink.   But her brother was all over it…

“Rosebud! You don’t never go in a wo-man’s purse! Its dangerous.  You never know what’s in there.”

I have no idea where he learned that, but I’d say those are some valid words to live by.
