An Ode to Boogie Wipes

Pre-children me had so many ideas of how things were going to be. I like to laugh at pre-children me. I should have learned my lesson after having one child but I am not always the brightest bulb in the pack.

When Enterprise was a baby, so many people were using these things called Boogie Wipes. Somehow I got it in my head that boogie wipes were bourgeois and if regular old tissues were good enough for me, they were good enough for my child. So I flat out refused to even consider using them. Thankfully Enterprise was a relatively healthy baby.

Enter Discovery, who not only has to fight his normal daycare germs, but also has to fight off all the germs Enterprise brings home. His nose just can’t catch a break. I find it pretty ironic that most of my salary goes to daycare and whatever is left goes to the doctor to fight the daycare germs. I’d give up but work is my only relief from my children (who I love but sometimes it’s nice to pee in private).

Enter the boogie wipes. Sometime around 5 months or so Discovery got the worst stuffy nose. I’m still not sure how such a tiny nose can produce such gigantic boogers. His poor nose was so raw that I made a special trip to get tissues with lotion. The boogie wipes (smart product placement) were sitting right next to the tissues so I figured why not.

I am not at all exaggerating when I say my life has been changed. Halleluiah!

Those suckers are magic, somehow they actually dissolve the booger. Discovery’s nose had never been so clean. And don’t tell me I’m the only one that gets immense satisfaction out of getting huge boogers out of kids noses. (crickets … Ok fine, I’m a little weird). Not only are they good nose cleaners, they smell incredibly good and babies find the packaging fascinating. The crinkly package can keep Discovery busy for a good 10 minutes. That alone is worth getting some.

Anyway, I am now not only a convert but a proselytizer. This was not a sponsored post, just a product that I really really love and want to make aware to others. The one and only link in the post is an affiliate link, but it’s a good price. I wouldn’t link to something if it’s not a good deal.

~ Enterprise is 3 years 5 months, Discovery is 11 months and both have noses you could eat off of.

  1. This winter made me a boogie wipe convert as well. And its an ongoing joke in our house how much I love the feeling of accomplishment when all the boogers are cleared. You are not alone in your weirdness. :)

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one. I’m not sure where he’s keeping them but I swear some of those suckers are bigger than his nose!
