This isn’t a post about that kind of bathroom stuff.
The other day, Alex proudly told me that he used the last of the toilet paper in the bathroom. I wasn’t sure why he was so proud, although I had a suspicion it wasn’t going to be something I wanted to hear about, until he went on to explain that he also changed the roll of toilet paper all by himself.
This is awesome. I told him that it was awesome! I said it was fantastic that he was willing to do that, and that it made me proud.
A little while later, I, too, used the bathroom. And, sure enough, there was a new roll of toilet paper put on just like Alex had said. There was a small problem, though.
The toilet paper was put on the wrong way.
I never did explain the right way to put it on because I was just so happy that he did it.
Plus, I love that he is becoming more and more independent, even if that means that sometimes things won’t be “perfect”.
