Going Green

As with most children over 18 months, Jackson likes to unroll the toilet paper and leave it in a large pile on the floor. I admit that over the past few months, I have thrown away more toilet paper than my depression-raised grandmother (or Al Gore, for that matter) would like. After all, who wants to use toilet paper that has been on the ground? I didn't think so.

At any rate, I think my older 2 kids got tired of my wasteful ways. This morning I walked into the bathroom and found :


When questioned as to what happened, they told me that they were just trying to "help us not waste the toilet paper". Since they couldn't roll it back up (too hard) they thought they might just drape it all over the bathroom. I had to laugh since the visual of how one might employ such TP when planted on the toilet, came to mind.

My children are now, in effect, treehuggers. I am so proud.
