I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Toilet paper

Today Zion unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper - just because.

It really is much funnier in the comics, and in cartoons.
In real life, it is just annoying... in case anyone was wondering.

It is especially annoying for someone who's nickname in college was "Captain Planet" - which means I am incapable of just gathering it up and throwing it away.
No, I carefully and neatly rolled the entire thing back up.

I thought about punishing Zion by making him use that roll, and that roll only for the next little while, but after a moment of actually thinking, I realized that since I am the one who has to actually wipe his little tooshie, that really wasn't much of a punishment.

Guess what his punishment was...
Nothing.

By the time I rolled up the whole roll, it was time for me to get in the shower, and by the time I got out of the shower, I had to get ready to run out the door for book club. I didn't even remember it until I got home after book club, sat down to pee, and reached over for some toilet paper, only to find the not quite rolled, slightly squashed paper.
Zion had already been in bed for two hours... too late for discipline at that point!

No wonder he is a little booger!

For some reason, I knew you were going to have saved the TP! I love it that you are such a predictable tree hugger! :)

My husband used to put his finger in the paper towel roll and pull it out... casing chaos in the grocery store for his mom! :o)

Those babies get away with everything don't they? Just kidding. And, believe it or not I would have saved all the TP also. BUT, for me it is more a money issue. ha ha!
