Isn't this Just the Stuff I Wipe My Butt With?

Something unholy is happening between Little Guy and the toilet paper in this house. For the last couple of months, he has been worshipping at the feet of the Charmin Bears. And when I say worship, I am not exaggerating.

His favorite toy? Toilet paper. His favorite security "blanket"? Toilet paper. His favorite food? Friggin' toilet paper. I swear, I'm having to stash away all the rolls in the house like I'm hiding booze from an alchy.

Allow me to present the picture proof...

Top 10 Things Little Guy Was Thinking in these Photos

1) If you think this is bad, wait 'till the neighbor sees what I do to his yard.

2) You clearly left this here for me to play with.

3) I'll teach you what potty training is all about.

4) This place is filthy. I'd help you clean it up, but I'm busy.

5) Do you have any crayolas? These walls look bare.

6) You're damn right I'm mad, look at my unitard.

7) I'm hungry. Go strain my peas.

8) Pops, you don't know art when you see it.

9) Mommy told me to.

10) You wipe your butt with this stuff?

*Captions courtesy of a funny brother-in-law who responded with these when I e-mailed him the photos. (Like Husband, BIL doesn't read this blog so I guess I didn't need to give him the credit, but I'm nice like that.)

Oh, and on a side note, you gotta check this out. In my search for an image to use for this post, I came across these awesome Bush/Kerry toilet paper rolls. Guess who I'd rather wipe MY ass with? I'll give you a hint, HIS version is sold out.

My baby likes paper towels...and carpet lint, he can't get enough!!

As for Bush toilet paper, haha! Too bad, I would have gotten a huge economy pack for the family!

What's with his addiction to toilet paper? LOL! I hope you're buying in bulk!

No wonder why Walmart ran out of toilet paper the other day, you stashed them all. He's too damn cute with those curls. And love the caption.

BTW, if you're looking for a "funny" post for the award, I just read one and it was HILA.RIOUS!!

I found her via Parent Hacks. Maybe you read it already?

LMAO!! This is great! We've been there too, girl. But not as far as the eating of. I heard a prego once say her "odd pregnancy cravings" included EATING TP. hmmmm... was that you??
These two oughtta get wrap together. See the lovely surprises we've found?

So funny. He is unbelievably cute and I loved your BIL's captions.

Ha ha ha

Sometimes I forget about those stages. That made my day :)

I am writing to inform you that your child has exceeded his stated cuteness quota for 2006. I must further warn you that any repeat of this sort of extreme cuteness will result in a visit from one of our agents who will have no choice but to stand around saying "aahhh what a sweetie" a lot and generally getting under your feet. You have been warned

Oh that innocent, adorable face. It would be hard not to crack a smile at him and the big mess.

Can you spare a square?

Hehe! I love it!

I'm Canadian and I still would have bought a case of the Bush stuff to give out as party favours.

Damn, your kid is Ceeeeyooote!
Cute, Cute, Cute!!

Wow, Little Guy sure knows how to entertain. Both himself and others! My dog was into toilet paper for a while, but it was never as cute and amusing as in these pictures!

Hahaha! Screw those cartoon bears! You need to send that to the Charmin folks for their new ad campaign.

I have a suggestion for you. If you put the TP on the roll, so the peice hangin down is underneath, it's harder for them to get.

If it's on top, it's too easy to quickly unroll.

BTW - my bug LURVES her some TP, she will carry tissues around, blowing her nose and wiping the walls, then shredding them into 10 million pieces for me to vacuum.

Great Day: that is an EXCELLENT idea! You are so clever. I will definitely try that.

Waya: thanks, I hadn't seen that one. I will check it out. I may try do nominations for this award--like the Perfect Post Awards do...

O Mama Mia: OMG, that is hilarious! People, go check out this link for more kiddie pottie humor...

Hey, Gabey here from Little Bald Doctors. I've hijacked my mom's blogger account again to tell Little Guy that I like the toilet paper too.

But here's the thing. If you put the end of the paper into the toilet water without tearing it and then you flush, you can watch the water pull the paper off the roll. WEEEEE! Terribly funny! It only takes about three flushes to go through a roll, so have back ups.

But be careful. Because sometimes the toilet will stop up, leaking water onto the rug and out to the carpet in the hallway. If that happens, and your mom is anything like mine (which I think she is with the accounting, writing, piano playing, not-so-much-into-music-and-shoes thing, and Stephen King reading that they keep raving about) then she'll be fighting mad. So grab the plunger (that rubber thing on a stick) and pretend your Harry Potter and fly away on your rubber broomstick. Ha ha ha! That'll take up an afternoon.

Your friend,

My son went through that stage too. Be warned - he quickly moved on to always wanting to carry a handful of wipes around. Toilet paper is less expensive, but at least he cleans the couch with the wipes!

That is great. Yeah I don't get the facination with toilet paper. My kid STILL has a thing for bandaids.

I don't know who I feel more sorry for... You, for having to do clean-up... Little Guy, when it's time to clean-up... or the toilet paper, because, wow, it's gotta suck to be so unraveled. :)

Those captions are awesome. I cracked up at the one about straining the peas.

And Little Guy is adorable, as always.

Now, how come I can't find that Bush toilet paper at Costco? I would buy a case of it! (that sounds naughty, bush toilet paper, thanks for the laugh!)

I would get some of that Bush TP if only I could stand to look at his face any more than I have to.

He is adorable--kids are so cute surrounded my mounds of toilet paper...unless their mine :-)

My youngest likes to tear off tiny pieces and flush each little piece down the toilet-individually!

Toilet paper is nice and soft and would make a great toy!

What a cutie. My 2 year old stuffs the entire toilet FULL of the tp. Then takes off his diaper and poops on the ground. GRRRR>..

Ha ha! That's awesome. My kids like TP, too. They're going to be great toilet paperers one day (I'm thinking trees in yards, that kind of thing.)

That Bush TP is funny, too. Sold out! Too bad... :)

We bought one of those pretty stand up toilet paper holders and ever since then it is toilet paper all over the floor as soon as I turn my head. Uhg!

Nope, my mom is too busy unclogging the toilet. She finally got the "broom" away from me.

LOL my Lil Man worships those bears too. Everytime he goes to the bathroom you can hear him singing "Ahh Charmin Ultra, that feels good". LMAO

Too bad about the Bush paper being sold out. I could really use some of that....
