Piper has always loved helping around the house, and now that she’s a little older I can give her more responsibility. When I’m wiping down counters, she loves to get her little squirt bottle of water and a hand towel and “clean” cabinets. She’s also more and more interested in what I’m doing in the kitchen, and she loves to help cook. It’s normally around witching hour, when I’m trying to get dinner made and she’s throwing a fit. I’ll let her help me make dinner, which instantly lifts her mood.

She’s also loved helping me make smoothies recently. I’ll chop the fruit and let her put it in the blender. Then, she laughs and cracks up whenever I turn the blender on. It’s the cutest. Of course, letting her help (and drink a smoothie) gets very messy very quickly. As much as I hate messes, I love the excitement Piper has when she helps in the kitchen even more. To clean up afterwards, we use Huggies Natural Care Wipes. We always have a large stock of wipes in the house, but they are for more than just diaper care. We take them when we’re out and about to clean up sticky hands, and we use them in the kitchen to clean up sticky messes.

Huggies Natural Care Wipes have also helped us teach Piper about responsibility and about being ‘helpful.’ We just taught her the word ‘helpful’ and practice saying it with her when she is doing something helpful, like helping us clean up. With Huggies wipes she can help wipe down the table and space around her in a safe, effective way. I love that these wipes are free of parabens, alcohol, and MIT, making them safe for even the littlest people. Plus, I know that they are able to handle our mess, because they are clinically proven to wipe away 99% of germs.

Because we use wipes for both diapering, cleaning messy hands and faces on the go, and cleaning messes around the house, we love to buy them in bulk. We buy ours at Sam’s Club, where you get more bang for your buck by being a member. Plus, right now there’s free shipping on wipes, so I don’t even have to leave the house. A win for all!
