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.
