I guess I knew that things would get messy when I had kids, but no one told me just how messy things would get.
The applesauce incident
This was one of those days that I just had to laugh because things were so ridiculous. I was feeding the baby, back turned to my son when I realized something was going on back there. I looked over my shoulder to find my darling 2 year old spooning applesauce into my pants pocket. Because, why not, right?
I never got a photo of the applesauce, but it wasn’t long before my daughter was creating her own messes at the dinner table. Even when she was trying her best to get every last drop of yogurt, the table, chair, and everything else around her would need a thorough disinfecting and cleaning afterwards.
When things aren’t actually as washable as they say
The great thing about being a parent this century is that there are a lot of “washable” art supplies for kids to work with. And that’s awesome, it certainly makes things easier, but real-life “washable” doesn’t mean so much when there is a toddler involved.
Painting day always ends up looking something like this…
Which is why PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant is pretty much the only option available. We always craft at the kitchen table, so we need something that is food safe. This magical beauty? You won’t even have to rinse it off. So. Easy.
Okay, can we be honest for a minute? We’re all messy moms here, right? Since the kids started walking there started to be this little layer of grime all on the walls from their hand-height down on the walls. Oh goodness, the grime. I have no idea how they can wash their hands so often and yet still be so messy 1,000% of time time. but my walls have become acquainted with the grime, and I’ve learned that wall-washing will be a time-consuming part of my life until they are grown ups.
Again with our friend, PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant. Spray everything from 3 feet down and scrub-scrub-scrub! It’s a worry-free way to disinfect and clean off that grime and hide the fact that kids collect dirt like it’s candy and spread it all over the house.
When cleaning supplies become messy
Okay forreal, you know that something nutty is going on with the kids when they can turn something that is made for cleaning, into a mess. Like this paper towel roll incident with my oldest.
