From potty training toddlers to independent big kids, we’re always worrying about their hygiene. But what do you do when your kid won’t wipe their butt? You can wipe their butts for them, but you can’t do it forever and honestly, who wants to wipe someone else’s butt? It’s time to take a stand and just say no!

It doesn’t seem like a big deal. Washing your hands, brushing your teeth and wiping your butt. This is just part of the daily routine but for kids, this task seems nearly impossible. Can we be surprised? My eldest kid still can’t remember where he put his shoes. And he’s 20 years old. Come with us to the Butt Wiping Support Group, where moms like you and me can vent about this phenomenon and figure out a solution to this age old problem. Because who wants a dirty B?

We’ve all looked into our children’s eyes and asked “Did you wipe your B-hole?” Time and again, they’ll stare right back and say yes when we know they didn’t. They’ll lie as if we can’t figure it out. As if we don’t know the telltale signs of skipping a butt wipe. We were kids once too. From the butt scratching to the underpant skidmarks, the clues are abundant. So, what do you do? Trust them? Of course not!

It’s time to institute Random Butt Checks! That’s right because our kids better have some class and wipe their ass!
