this is slightly, OT, but very funny, at least i think so!
I buy these huge boxes of TP, 48 rolls, they come wrapped in paper, indvidually, it's the kidn you get in a motel.  It's cheap but, what does it matter to me, you know?  then i buy regular for the rest of the family.
Well, my son, almost three, thinks the most fun in the world is to take those TP rolls out and take the paper off them.  So, i let him.  And he was so cute, he was unwrapping them, then he took them in the hall and lined them up, and then he piled them up and bowled with them.  Well, eventually he put them all in a basket and took them in his room.  Well, had i been smart, i would not have let him do this.  I told him he could play with them, as long as he didnt' unroll them, he said he wouldn't.  So, ifyou have children you know that if something is entertaining them, and it's not hurting anyone, you just let them do it.  So i let him play with it. I go in there a few minutes later to check on him, and his entire bed is a huge mound of TP!!!  He has unrolled probably four rolls and piled them all around!  it was so funny.  well i told him he needed to clean this up, and put the rolls back in the basket.  But, there was a roll under the bed, and he tried to pick it up, but it kept rolling off and he was freaking out (he is a bit of a drama queen!) and hollering, "I can't get it, there is a problem, what is the problem?"  and i know, i should have helped him, but this was so funny, he now has himself wrapped in TP and still cannot figure out why pulling on the TP is not getting him the roll. 
Eventually he got it and i took the TP into the bathroom.  so, now i have a WHOLE lot of TP in a pile in my bathroom!

Cute! Your son sounds adorable, and you sound like a laid back mom - he's a lucky kid!!!

BTW: I do the same with TP - I buy the industrial stregnth stuff, hard has cardboard. I was thinking that I would have to switch back to Cottonelle after my takedown - CRAZY!!!
If at first you do not succeed, then skydiving is surely not meant for you.

i am a very laid back mom, i always say things happen around here due to "poor parental suprevision" lol. In reality, it's just that he is a very wild child, and if there is something that occupies him, and it doesnt' involve fire, it pretty much goes! we have hardwoods so everything cleans up easy, my husband used to get so mad because when my son was little i would put him in his high chair and fill the tray with water, that kid thought that was the most fun in the world! and of course, water just dries, not a big deal, but my husband got so mad about the mess.

I really want to buy those really really big rolls, like the ones in the grocery store bathrooms, but i don't know where i would put them next to the toilet!

Isn't it funny how when you become a parent suddenly letting a child play with tp sounds so normel? Like you said (I'm paraphrasing) 'anything to keep them entertained.' haha Great story!

i promise i will not be giving him matches! that is one of my major things, if you smell smoke or see blood or bone, you gotta do something, fast! Other than that, it's probably nothing, lol.
And it is amazing how stuff like giving a kid TP or paper plates (he likes paper plates too) to play with is normal! i think what happened to me anyway, was, he was almost two when i had surgery, so for the first two years, i was too sick to do alot with him, and there were alot of times i was just so sick i couldnt' entertain him myself, so things that would occupy him for a long time were the best thing.

Haha "I can't get it, there is a problem, what is the problem?" Hahah! That is so great!! Kids say such hilarious things sometimes, it's great when they repeat things adults say, it just sounds so much cuter coming from them. I don't have kids but I've been around them a lot and I can't help but crack up when they're doing stuff like that, and then I feel bad because I know I'm just encouraging sometimes undesirable behavior, but man I can't help it, kids are just too funny.
