Dear Maura

30 Mar

Please don’t wipe your dirty hands on your clothes.

Nor on your mother’s clothes. Especially not when she’s still wearing them.


Your Mom


P.S. – I did appreciate, when I got out the baby wipes, that you did your best to clean off my shoulder with one of them.  That was very nice of you.

    just so you know – my perfectly-average-if-not-a-bit-above 7 year old STILL does that. the best is when she picks her nose with the inside of her shirt and then licks it. I think you are fighting a losing battle with this one. I keep saying i’m going to make some cloth napkins that velcro around their wrists/forearms for all the times that they use their sleeves. want a pair? lol

    Yep. Been there. STILL there. And they’re nine. At least I’ve gotten them to the point where they (usually) don’t do it in public. This is why we have baby wipes in the car.

    yup, right there w/ ya. Finally my almost 9 year old has stopped. but my 6 year old son loves to cuddle up next to me…then slyly wipe his nose on my shoulder. YUCK!
