Note to self:

Remember that time your toddler put an entire roll of toilet paper down the sink and then turned the sink on and flooded the place until your housemate came upstairs to find out why it was raining in her bathroom? Remember how even while your mommy-brain was horrified and embarassed, your author-brain couldn’t help noticing how funny it was?

You, as author, would only include that scene once in the comic novel you like to pretend you are living. Your toddler, however, does not share your restraint.

Which is to say, Self, that you might consider putting the toilet paper out of reach from now on, since she obviously still thinks flooding the bathroom with soapy water and paper paste is funny.
