Mine!...

Oh how I dislike this word! I seem to hear "MINE" ALL the time lately. Way back when Finding Nemo was first out I thought it was sort of cute how the creators had the sea gulls say "mine" when they went after some sort of food. I mean didn't we all want to know what those birds meant when they squaked at us? I can now say "That was then, this is now". I cringe every time I hear that word! Of our four children it is mostly Lindsey that says it. She seems to say it when that word is not even called for Like when she is on our bed & I tell her to get down. She will start to whine & then say "Mine!". And then she REPEATS herself about a million times! I think she is on to how much this annoys me! Because she gets a smirk on her face after about the third time it comes out of her mouth. LOL! What do you think it is all about? What does it mean? Now I realize having to "share" things with three others can be tough but at least say it when its called for. Like when let's say Avery takes her sippy cup. That sounds like a perfect opportunity to me & being the logical thinker that I am I wonder why. Why is EVERYTHING "Mine!"? I SO wish she would move on to another word & stop saying...
