Is it ever OK to wipe your child's hand with a Clorox disinfecting wipe (bleach-free)? My answer is a resounding YES.
I know they're meant for sanitizing surfaces and might be a little abrasive to one's delicate skin, but trust me- this was one surface that needed sanitizing. Because sometimes "it" happens. And when "it" happens, desperate times call for very desperate measures. Especially when "it's" on your child's hand. And the only thing you have within arm's reach that will do "it" and justice is a Clorox wipe. All the TP in the world wasn't going to work for us last night.
Don't judge me. I put her in the tub immediately after sanitization. And she didn't appear to be any worse for the wear when she was dressed in her bum-ruffle PJs and told me, "I wan 'nuggle." Your heart would have to be made of ice to resist that! So I held her until she fell asleep, with her pudgy germ-free hands clutching her blankie.
Continuing on my fake quest to become Martha Stewart, I made "homemade" waffles for breakfast this morning. Using Bisquick. Hey, it's a step in the right direction.
To reiterate that I do not have a reputation for my culinary prowess, Micah incredulously asked "You're making HOME.MADE waffles?!?!" With extra emphasis on the "home" and "made" that typing simply can't convey. The waffles he's used to are of the Eggo variety.
I may have to continue preparing HOME.MADE waffles for breakfast because apparently HOME.MADE waffles invoke a spirit of peace and goodwill between 2 brothers who previously could not put on their respective school clothes without arguing. Micah graciously allowed Cade to sit in "his" (Micah's self-proclaimed) seat for breakfast and no one complained that one brother got the "real" (plastic) plate while the other used the last paper plate. I'm willing to bet Martha would never serve on paper or plastic! But Rome wasn't built in a day, either!
