your toilet paper?
My son is obsessed with toilet paper these days. Specifically, he wants to throw it in the toilet. And he throws anything that even remotely resembles TP in the toilet. Facial tissues, paper napkins, and paper towels all have to be out of his reach or he'll stuff the toilet with them the second your back is turned.
He loves toilet paper and he begs for it any time he visits the toilet, but he only needs it when he poops so I dole it out after he drops a deuce. Boys don't need to wipe their wiener after peeing, right?
Anyway, he asked for TP this morning after he dropped some kids off at the pool. I'm being generous to say that he asked because he pointed at the toilet paper roll and yelled, "MINE!" After I was sure that he was done pooping, I gave him a square of TP. He doesn't know how to wipe his own bottom and he can't reach it anyway so he "wiped" the best he can: He crumpled it up and threw it over his shoulder. Yeah, we're gonna have to work on his wiping technique.
I noticed that he crumples up the toilet paper before he used it. Well, before he threw it over his shoulder. I know that you can crumple or fold the TP before using and I've never taught him one way or the other. Based on his "help" when I put away laundry, I know that he can't fold, but I still find it interesting that he crumples.
My ex-husband had a theory on which method results in a cleaner butthole. I have a theory as well. We each chose a different method. Now, I'm not saying that crumpling versus folding TP led to our divorce, but I think it didn't help matters.
Do your crumple or fold your toilet paper? Feel free to leave an anonymous comment if you don't want the whole world (okay, just the readership - not exactly the world) to know how you treat your toilet paper before you wipe your butt.
