What just happened FIVE MINUTES ago: because I dared fall for the classic blunder – not paying enough attention when your whiny clingy child goes silent.
I knew better.
I should have listened. To the silence.
I should have noticed it was a little too quiet.
I should have remembered: I just put a new toilet paper roll onto the dispenser before I took Lil Diva to the doctor.
As this epiphany slammed into me harder than my son in full tackle mode – I simultaneously raced into the downstairs bathroom. And found THIS:
The bad news: I did not need something else to stress me out.
The good news: I used new philosophy of “Don’t Freak Out. Take a Picture.” Ironically created after the incident two days ago.
The bad news: I already posted a “what the frak” blog today.
The good news: It’s my blog and I can do an honorary “what the frak” post if I want to.
The bad news: It was a new roll of toilet paper.
The good news: Only half of it was removed from the roll and most of it missed the potty.
The bad news: Lil Diva managed to fill the potty with unflushable objects instead.
The good news: She didn’t try to flush.
The bad news: The Tackler neglected to flush after using the potty.
The good news: No poop was involved. (THANK GOD!)
The bad news: One of the Tackler’s socks was tossed in. Eww.
The good news: Lil Diva hadn’t yet tossed in his shoes that he’d also left on the bathroom floor.
When doing a line by line comparison, while it is probably her most prolific Attack of the Toilet Paper and Toss Everything Into the Toilet incident to date, it could have been worse.
Still… what the frak ya’ll?!?!
I hope your Friday is going better than mine (perhaps you’ll hear about me getting lost on the way to the pediatrician’s new location another time).
