I am ashamed. I did it. I didn’t mean to do it.
I even blogged about it here.
But I still fell victim to one of the classic blunders.
I’ll give you a hint.
It wasn’t about the land war in Asia.
OR going against a Sicilian with death on the line.
It was the third, and even lesser well known one, which I’m certain Vizzini was about to enlighten us on before he keeled over.
“When children are too quiet, NEVER sit down and write an email or take two minutes to yourself. Because 90% of the time, they are doing Something New. And this Something New is new because it is also Something Forbidden.”
Unbeknown to me, but quickly discovered by The Banshee, The Terrible Tackler left the door open to the bathroom before his nap.
The Banshee, happier than she’s been in days (thanks to Virus Unknown), did not see fit to inform me of this oversight.
And did this —>
To a Brand New roll of toilet paper (why does this always happen to the “NEW! Now Five Times Larger” rolls?)…
Not pictured: the rest of the roll inside the bathroom that never made it out into the hallway. She had also strewn it about more like a haphazard TP job (if the Tee-peeing people were only 2.5 feet tall), before I arrived on the scene and shoved it into a more manageable pile. I would have a better photo if Lil Diva hadn’t been on my arm attempting to reunite herself with her work of art. Most emphatically, I might add.
At least she didn’t eat it.
*** If this post confused you, you have obviously never witnessed the greatness that is The Princess Bride or seen what damage a child under one year can do in 2 minutes. Rent the movie if you haven’t watched it. Watch it again if you have. 🙂
As for the toddler part, if you really wish to see what they can do, offer to babysit one. Or adopt/pet-sit a puppy.
Both like to eat shoes.
