mom confessionsIt's time for a Mom Confession — because, let's face it, we're real mothers and sometimes it doesn't work the way the parenting books say it should.

This Week's Confession:

I use my kid's flushable toilet wipes.

We bought some of those flushable Kandoo toilet wipes for our toddler son who was, well, not doing a very good wipe job on his own. They work marvelously, and we always keep a supply on the back of the toilet for him.

One afternoon, I was using the toilet and realized we were out of toilet paper, and there was none in the cupboard either. So I reached for one of my son's wipes. Well, it was pretty nice — all moist and soft, and I felt so clean! Now I use his wipes the time. -- anonymous
