It started as a joke…and then became an adventure. Our 13 yr old is away for three weeks at sleep away camp. We placed a paper towel roll in his seat at the kitchen table one dinner, just for convenience. And then jokingly decided to put a face on the paper towel. We took a picture and texted it to him with the comment, “you’ve been replaced by a paper towel roll.” He never responded, so we took it up a notch: each day we took a snapshot of the paper towel roll in different situations with his sisters and sent him a message noting how amazing the paper towel roll is. He still hasn’t responded. Below are some examples.
