Because Facebook doesn’t show all of our followers all of the awesomeness all of the time we have . . .
One of the most entertaining things about writing a weekly wrap-up is seeing how the Facebook updates and blog posts shake down and flow together. We love to find a common thread for these follow-ups but we never go into a week planning a theme; we just have to look in the rear view mirror and see what happened. You know, like when you swerve to miss a chipmunk and you look back praying there isn’t a bloody mess? Well anyway, for this week the common thread is seriously “Poop and Party.” See if you agree.
Happenings on Facebook
Posting this graphic:
Led to this discussion:
I put up a funny graphic about toilet paper this morning. A reader commented about some people using cloth squares instead because of the fear of the chemicals in toilet paper.
I must get your opinions:
How do you feel about reusable toilet paper?
I’m sharing a link to an article that is very balanced about the pros and cons. Family Cloths: Reusable Toilet Wipes, Gross or Great? Discuss.
Click here to see the hilarious discussion. Things like “Hell NO!” may have been muttered more than once. Even many fans of cloth diapers couldn’t get on board with this. We were wondering who had enough time in their lives to wash, dry, and snap back together this Etsy roll. Our toilet paper spindles are left empty enough of the time as it is.
So you see the poop, but where’s the party?

We laid it out there in our new post: We Hate Baby Shower Games.

We’ve Found Bloggers to Love Who See the Humor in Poop Too
Science of Parenthood is our new blog crush.

There are more illustrations where this one came from. They have a whole The Scoop On … Poop (And Other Potty-Related Things) Pinterest board.
