So resourceful

The other day, Emma and Molly were both trying to use the handtowel that was hanging on the towel ring at the same time.

The result?... a big hole in the wall where the ring used to be.

Needless to say, neither of us (Dan or I) were very happy about it. The girls got a good talking-to from me while Dan tried to figure out a way to fix the problem.

A little while later, Emma said she had a surprise for us. We walked in the bathroom and this is what we saw.

It is a combination of the old towel ring, the new towel ring base, some scotch tape and a wire tie.

Emma was so darn proud of herself, while maintaining proper humility for having landed in this scrape in the first place, that we found it too difficult to stay mad any longer. I had to laugh at her resourcefulness.


  1. Oh Michelle!

    She is so awesome! I think it looks very nice and I would suggest leaving it for EVERYONE to see. I love how the wire tie accents the towel ring. The scotch tape looks very nice with the ensemble, too! She should have just put white toothpaste in behind the towel ring base. You wouldn't have known ANYTHING happened to the old towel ring!

  2. That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! What a little sweetie!
