My dirty little secret
I’m about to admit something very embarrassing. Here goes…
Sometimes, after Darah has gone potty, I will skip washing her hands.
I know. GROSS!!!! And I’m setting a terrible example by not being consistent with her about it. I’d guess that until recently, I’d probably skip it about 1/3 of the time. I always wash my hands (I’m the one doing the wiping at this point!) but as for her, it’s just easier to skip sometimes.
I don’t skip it because I don’t think it is important, or because I want to save water. I skip it because it is SUCH a pain to hoist her up and over to where she can reach the water. Lame excuse, I know, but I’m just being totally honest here.
Help is on the way!
And thankfully, there’s at least one other mom out there who understood my frustrations, and she did something about it. She created the Aqueduck, which is a genius little device that is easily added to any faucet to help bring the water to your children instead of the other way around. Check it out!
Why it rocks
- First, the Aqueduck attaches to your faucet in all of 2 seconds. Easy! And since it can be taken on or off so easily, it can travel with you if you are going on a trip.
- Second, this has caused Darah to become very interested in getting her hands washed. That means that even if gross mom over here tries to skip a hand washing session and shave off a few seconds from the potty trip, Darah won’t be having any of that. 🙂
- Third, it really does work (as you can see!). I have a step stool in front of the sink, and she can totally reach the water now thanks to Aqueduck.
Buy it!: The Aqueduck is available for $12.99 and is available at several online retailers (including Amazon). I highly recommend it!
