BabyLove here! Are you ever shocked by what you are capable of doing as a mom? The other day I was eating a turkey sandwich when William called me from the bathroom to wipe his bum. I put the sandwich down, wiped his bum, washed my hands, and continued eating. It wasn’t until later that evening that I found myself utterly amazed by what I had done. Five years ago, the thought of wiping a bum would have made me gag. NOW, however, I’m quite able to wipe bums and eat at almost the exact same time?..Disgusting, and probably not a resume builder. This topic, gross things we do for our kids, leads me to the only thing that I really can’t handle as a mother, and that’s boogers. Nasty booger noses make me gag. Runny, green snot noses aren’t allowed in my house which is why last year I turned to BOOGIE WIPES!
Last winter both of my kids had 6 ear infections a piece. Most commonly an ear infection follows a cold, and is the result of improper drainage. So for each ear infection that my boys suffered from, a nasty cold came first. Each cold was worse than the one before, and the red, raw nose that lasted long after the infection was gone, really did a number on William’s willingness to blow his nose. One day in Target, I came across a package of what I thought were wipes, but turned out to be SO MUCH MORE. Boogie Wipes are made with saline, vitamin e, aloe, and chamomile. The saline acts as a dissolvent for those gross, stuck on boogies and the vitamin e, aloe, and chamomile soothe and prevent chapped noses. They are packaged in a small, travel size wipes package with an actual lid to prevent them from drying out. I’ve carried these in my baby bag, my pocket book, and kept them in my glove compartment. They smell soo good, just like Hubba Bubba Grape bubble gum, and best of all, kids love them because they DON’T HURT. These wipes have become a staple in my life, and it’s such a shame because most moms didn’t even know they exist-until now of course!
Last week I was strapping William into his car seat so we could head out for school.
Me: Let me wipe your nose.
William: No one wants to hang around with the kid who has boogers all over his face?
AM I bad mom for telling my son the truth about boogers? Maybe, but I don’t think so. Please, please wipe your kids nose before they head out the door, and do it with a BOOGIE WIPE. They’ll thank you for a number of reasons, but most importantly because no one wants to hang around with the kid who has boogers all over his face.
What are your secrets for getting your kids out the door footloose and snot-free?
