WHY don't people wipe their kids' noses?? It's disgusting. It's unsanitary. It makes YOU look dirty and lazy, because if you're willing to let your kid run around like that, who knows what other hygienic corners you're willing to cut?
It's really not that complicated. Step one: keep a tissue wadded up in your pocket. I think it's a law that moms have to have at least one half-used tissue wad on their person at all times. Don't break the law.
Step two: occasionally, glance at your child. I know, that text convo you're having is fascinating and I sure do get sucked in to the "breast vs formula feeding" debates on cm mobile, too, but every now and then, come up for air and slide those orbits offspring-ward. They're probably busy hitting some other kid and stealing a toy. You can avoid dealing with that situation by running over and conscientiously wiping your kids' nose. Ta-da! Instant awesome, responsible parent! Good job.
