An ode to wetwipes

If you ever told me to write
an ode to a wet wipe
Before I became a mum
I wouldn’t think its much fun

But here I am
Mum to 3-year-old Little Man
All set to type
My heartfelt thanks to a wet wipe

For it has served me well
Protecting from messes and smells
Cleaning those poo-ridden bums
And something sticky on the tum!

I have a pack here and there
Yes, practically everywhere
All around the house and in the car
Never ever too far

In the nappy bag and the pram
It’s just the way I am
So whenever there’s a mess
I don’t have too much stress

There’s loads of variety
Fragranced and fragrance-free
Useful for cleaning this, that and the other
You’ll understand, if you’re a mother

You still ask why all the hype
about a simple wet wipe?
It cleans, it sheens
It’s my instant washing machine!

From tables and chairs
To practically anything, anywhere
If it needs a clean swipe
Swish out a wet wipe!


Who knew that little white wet thing
Could ever be such a blessing?
