Or: Beliefs That Must Be Outgrown With Toddlerhood To Avoid Possible Ridicule And/Or Failure

  • If your eyes are covered no one can see you.
  • Everyone wants to see your new underwear.
  • Dr Seuss is a cat.
  • The computer printer makes drawing paper.
  • Dogs are boys, cats are girls.
  • The ATM gives out free money.
  • Making a face and snarling is cute and flirtatious.
  • Friends are made and people influenced by sweaty tic-tacs dispensed with dirty hands.

Ha ha, so true! Especially the computer paper and ATM! And I have girls, so I'd like to add a new one: when stressed, or bored, or happy - just do cartwheels!

I have experienced every single one of these firsthand. Great job nailing the finer points of toddlerhood. I also always liked "If I put my hands over my ears I don't hear you and you'll go away".
