Long gone are the days when Darah would patiently wait for me to wipe her nose. I think that stopped around 5 or 6 months of age, actually. Now, every boogie wiping session is a showdown between the two of us. She always works really hard to avoid the tissue, and I work twice as hard to try to wipe off her nose and face before she screams bloody murder (and scream she does, my friends). It really make the process horrible for me. But did you know that a serious pet peeve of mine is to see children with snotty/runny noses?! I can’t stand it! I am slightly more empathetic to parents of snot-faced kids now, because I see how hard it is to wipe their noses, but still, it absolutely unnerves me. Someone needs to make a tissue for kids!
Fortunately, there’s a product on the market that I think is really effective at making the most of the 1/2 second that your child will allow you to touch his/her face with a tissue. You’ve probably already heard of Boogie Wipes, because word is getting out about how great they are, but if not, let me tell you about them!
These are no ordinary tissues with a clever name. They are extra soft wipes made with a saline solution that quickly and effectively dissolves mucus so that you can quickly get it off your child’s face or dislodge it from their noses. And if that statement just grossed you out,what can I say? Welcome to parenthood. I have found these wipes to be my very best weapon in my arsenal as I fight snot and boogies on a daily basis. I have to admit, I was skeptical of this product at first, but now that I’ve tried it, I’m sold!
