Leaving a paper trail...

One of the casualties of potty-training, I've discovered, is that we've gone through a truly excessive amount of toilet paper. Like almost a roll a day. My sister, who already went through this, suggested that we try Cottonelle for Kids, which has worked well for them. The basic premise is that kids follow the paw prints for 4 sheets to the puppy - then they tear it off. It's supposed to help them understand how much to use.
So did that work for us? Oh no. Quite the opposite, in fact. I walked into the bathroom last night to find an entire roll unraveled on the floor. Josh said, "Look mama - I found all the puppies!"

Thanks for the tip, Vanover.

I was at Meagan' on Friday, and I felt bad when I had to go past the puppy, for what I felt was the proper amount. :)

Sorry that this is not working for you.

How are you?

Sarah said...

You took my shoes? I don't remember that at all!

Daedra - 2 times. But he seems to think he needs to wipe everytime he pees.

oh my goodness...

Yes, Sarah I have your shoes. I KNOW that you said that I could have them... geez now I am second gussing myself... Paul and I forgot to bring a change of clothes we were COVERED in mud. You gave me a pair of black payless tennis shoes with beige stripes down the sides. I wore them to go get out Mexican take out. I remember you saying something along the line of "oh, they are cheap and from payless, so go ahead and take them" If I am wrong, like I said I still have them, so I can give them back to you! :)

Nicol - I could care less about the shoes! I don't even remember them! That was a crazy day - I ruined 2 pairs of shoes out in the rain! Thank goodness I buy cheap shoes - can you imagine if I was Meagan - I would have been out there in ballet flats or something :)

Sarah said...

Sorry - I didn't mean "took" like you stole them or something - I just read my old comment and it sounded snotty. I just didn't remember that. Again - crazy day!!!

ngrish said...

no biggie, I just thought that it was funny! And, I would not have really given them back. :)I still wear them, and I like them. For cheap Payless shoes they have lasted a long time!
LOL

daedra said...

no, my feet aren't smelly like sarah's. I got over smelly feet after I stopped wearing shoes without socks

meagan said...

FYI- ballet flats were not in style when we worked on your yard.

platform espadrilles, perhaps...
