In my doctor's waiting room the other day, I browsed some parenting magazines while waiting to be seen. I picked up a good nugget of advice from Parenting.
If your child doesn't like having her faced wiped clean after making a mess, get some washcloths with her favorite characters on them and tell her that Elmo wants to give her a kiss. The mess will be gone in no time and the fight will be over before it's even begun.
As moms, we receive advice from just about everyone. But some of the most solid input comes from those old hands at raising children — our own mothers.

I rarely use bibs for my baby girl, but just couldn't resist buying one of these precious dual purpose Mullins Square bib and washcloth sets ($15).
My heart was set on the longhorn set because it reminds me of my home state, but there are other whimsical and holiday themed bibs to choose from – airplanes, ladybugs, poodles, ponies, etc.
The best part about this lil find is that the washcloth is part of the bib. So the longhorn's ears come out and aid in cleaning up baby's face, hands, and tray after eating. Although I'm pretty sure that after one use and wash, I won't be able to make the set look as good as it did when I brought it home — I can try!
