I set a trap


Another day when I thought Carter was having quiet time in his room...
I opened his door to check on him. I opened it to find something I never would have imagined. Carter had strands of toilet paper hung across his room. I gasped at the mess. Now Carter is not a destructive child and not at all messy. He wants his room to be picked up before going to bed at night. When he changes clothes he automatically puts the dirty ones in his hamper, he has been doing this since he was two. He cleans up his plate and cup after eating, with out being asked. So I knew there must be something to this toilet paper. I asked him what happened. He told me that he had some bad dreams and he was setting a monster trap. He showed me how each strand of toilet paper had a purpose. One from his bed to the bathroom door, another to the bedroom door, closet doors, dresser and under the bed, each area had a trap. He had strategically placed each strand. He was quite proud of his trap. In his mind it was not a mess but a well designed plan. We took some pictures, left it up so daddy could see when he came home and then discussed while it was a great trap, we should probably not use toilet paper for that again.
