Toddlers and Toilets

Lately we have been encouraging Hunter to use the bathroom by himself. He has been potty trained since last January when he was two and a half, but he still insists that we come to the bathroom with him every single time. So now instead of Matt or I accompanying him, he takes Cavan. I can hear them talk and laugh and Hunter usually lets Cavan do the flushing part. I have been pleased that they are getting along and Hunter is becoming more independent.

Yesterday morning they went to the bathroom to do their thing. Hunter returned saying he had pooed and wiped his bum all by himself. He also said he and Cavan put all the toilet paper in the toilet. I didn't think anything of the comment. I just figured he put his piece of toilet paper in the bowl.


About a half hour later I went to the bathroom to have my shower....


Nope. They really did put all the toilet paper in the toilet!

All three rolls:

hahaha I don't know what is funnier, that they did it or that he told you about it like it was something he was meant to do! Oh your kids kill me!

Like your thing with moths, I have a thing about wet paper....thankfully, my kids have never done anything like this or the toilet paper would have to stay there until Corey got home to get it out....wait, where are my kids right now?...........

Michael used to throw things into the toilet just as everything was being flushed down. He would go-go-Gadget-arm and grab whatever he could reach. It happened in less than a second. We actually had to pay to replace a toilet because he threw a soap dish down there one day.

OI!!! Children are madness - and sometimes to matter of fact that you don't realize what they mean.
