My Crappy Life

This is my last post of the week talking about things that have made my life as a special needs parent a little easier.

My life is full of crap...but that is not a bad thing. It means every child's digestive system is doing what it is supposed to do. Believe me, having a non-crappy life is much, much worse than a crappy one.

It seems I am constantly mixing Miralax, buying glycerine for 'bowel management', searching for the plunger, cleaning the bathroom, making sure the bidet toilet seat is functioning, shopping for the best price for incontinence products, and going through wipes and toilet tissue at an alarming rate. But again, this isn't a bad thing.

What is a bad thing is expensive, small baby wipes. I go through a lot of them, but I always wondered if there was a better solution. And there is!

I found this product called Certainty Adult Washcloths. They are just like baby wipes but bigger, softer and stronger. And the price is comparable. I can always find them at Walgreens, and they are almost always on sale.

I use them for my crappy life. I use them to wipe sticky faces and hands. I even use them to get spills out of clothes and carpet. I always have a pack with my in each child's backpack, as well as strategically placed around the house.

So, if you have a child that is not a baby but who still can benefit from wipes, I wholeheartedly recommend this product. And just for the record, Walgreens did not ask me to review their product, and provided no product or compensation to me. But I am more than willing to let them help out with my crappy life anytime they would like!

Thanks for the tip! I was saying just yesterday as I emptied nearly half the container of wipes that we go through them way too quickly, because he's not a baby anymore! I'll be looking for these!!

I would love to have a bidet for my household. I will look for these at Walgreens. I wish I could find more coupons for Goodnites, that is what we go thru like crazy.
