what the hell is the attraction?

omg if i have to pick up one more wipe. my daughter will find them no matter where they are and take everyone of them out of the container. what is the attraction with the wipes? does your child have an infatuation with them or is it just mine?

  • My middle child is obsessed with them. If I don't hide them from her we will go through a package of wipes in a few days. She cleans the house with them... She's an odd child. =)

  • I know alot of babys that do it, I think they see us taking them out, so they think its what your suppose to do, so they do it too...

  • oh no you're not alone. mine does it with wipes and box of tissues. i kept telling him that they cost a lot of money, but i think he thought i was cheering him to go faster.

  • OMG yes!! My son likes to pull them out and wipe his mouth which I guess is good if it is dirty but it is not so why? UGH I know I have them on the counter because he could get them in his room. But now he has learned to stand on a chair and get onto the counter. I am going to have to put a lock on them. LOL

  • mine loves them too! luckily she hasn't figured out how to open the container, but i have to close it as soon as i'm done taking wipes out or she will wiggle her booty over to them as fast as lightening!

  • Whenever I change my son's diaper I hand him a wipe and he will keep still, then when we are done he goes throughout the house and proceeds to dust with the wipe, he wipes down the fridge, the stove, the dishwasher and the entertainment center. I think he thinks they have more than one purpose since he has seen me wipe down the entertainment center with a dust wipe thing. I buy them in bulk so I don't mind sharing, I do mind when he begans tearing them into little pieces all over the place.
