You know I have good friends when…


they’re willing to send me stories like this!

English: An used toilet paper roll Português: Um rolo acabado de papel higiênico. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) There’s your Portugese lesson for the day. I just can’t get over why someone would take a picture of this. And why would wikipedia want it?

I was in the bathroom taking care of business while my two children milled around on the floor of the bathroom and my bedroom. Upon finishing, I came to the awful realization that not only was I left with an empty roll of TP, but there were no extra rolls in the bathroom either!

The only help I had were a nearly three-year-old and a 10-month-old.  I said to the elder, “Please go get some toilet paper for me from the other bathroom, but not too much!” I should never have added the addendum because lo and behold, the child who I have to regularly stop from unrolling entire rolls of TP onto my floors came back with exactly ONE square of TP!

I told him thank you and said, “Well, I need more than that. Please go get me some more.” And, what did he come back with?

One. more. square.

Instead of a third run for more, I just made do with those two squares and washed my hands REALLY WELL!

Thank you for sharing, Rebecca, mother of 2!

Readers, what would you have done in this situation?

  1. Sounds like she made the most of it! I would have given my 3-year-old the same warning, because she also will sit on the potty and unwind the tp until there is a pile of it on the floor.
