Or, more specifically, the ones with children still in a crib.
Here’s a question for you: When’s the last time you looked at your child’s crib slats from inside the crib? If you’re anything like me, you haven’t done it in quite a while, or even possibly since your child was born (ahem, yeah, that would be me).
Well, I happened to take a glance this morning. And oh my goodness. Grossness galore.
I don’t want to have to tell you what I saw, but let’s just say it starts with a “b” and ends with “oogers”. Along with lots of dried slobber, some pieces of food that had apparently not been completely wiped off his hands, and of course some dirt and grime, because what young child wouldn’t have dirt and grime on his hands unless you had just happened to wipe them less than 30 seconds ago.
All this disgustingness was plastered all over his crib slats. The ones that he grabs to pull himself up multiple times daily. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
So I want to challenge you moms out there who still have cribs in the house to grab an antibacterial wipe or similar cleaning device, head to your child’s room, and start wiping. Wipe all sides of the slats, top to bottom, and then wipe the bar across the top. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
Because, personally, I really like knowing that this little guy
has a clean place to lay his sweet head.
