Friday Flashback: Toilet Paper Baby

This was one of those moments - you know, the disturbingly quiet, "hmmmmm.... I wonder where the baby has gone as I stand here in the kitchen making dinner," kind of moment.

But it captures life with a baby - and the magic of a roll of fluffy white toilet paper - perfectly! Gracie was nearly one year old, and we were still living in California, the house we rented when we were apartment complex managers (worst job ever, as far as I'm concerned). It was a beautiful house, built in the 1920's... would have been perfect if not for that Pepto Bismal pink tiled bathroom (which had - and I'm not even kidding - BROWN walls. It was revolting).

But that bathroom provided the perfect pink back drop for a curious moment with a rosy pink baby!

Charlie must have known that you were going to post about his, because he totally channeled it and recreated it in Gracie's honor, yesterday.

Ah, the quiet moments. Yeah, sometimes those can be the scariest.

"Aw, peace and quiet...wait a minute...GAH! Ryah quit eating all the bakers chocolate out of the pantry! Wasn't there a permanent marker here on the counter? Where did it...GAH!"

Often at the time they seem like "oh no" moments. In retrospect those are the ones you carry with you and the family re-tells over and over again.

Wow, none of mine ever did that kind of TP destruction. That said, Merrick once tried to flush half a roll and I had to bust out the plunger. ICKY!!
