We’ve got one week left before I pick the finalists for the #bigmesslittlekid contest. The winner will get an $1000 Target gift card plus a bunch of Seventh Generation products to clean up future messes.
Will the kid covered in lipstick make it? The kid who decorated his room with diaper cream? One thing’s for sure, the finalists will not include the baby who wiped his poop all over his crib. Or the kids where the sh*t literally hit the fan. (And yes, I am using “literally” correctly in that last sentence.)
I thought about it, but I just could not make the leap to put an actual picture of poop on my blog. Sorry, kids.
Plus, we have even worse messes that don’t make me want to vomit.

I’ve been giving Mazzy and Harlow the Seventh Generation Baby Wipes to help me wipe up messes, which is great because they are made from plant-derived ingredients, hypoallergenic and free of fragrances, dyes, parabens and phthalates. I’m not sure what all that means exactly except it’s totally fine for my kids to touch them.
Mazzy and Harlow actually love to help clean with the wipes and I learned that something thick and soft enough to wipe a baby’s bottom also works excellent on windows!
