Okay, by now you should all know that being a Lazy Mom is not really about being lazy, right?
Yes, around here we have a little “fun” with the Lazy Mom name.
However, I do believe I’m the exception to the rule…. I am a Lazy Mom through and through. I believe in raising my children to be responsible, independent, wonderful people. But unfortantely, as I’m doing that, I have found out that along the way that I really am a lazy Lazy Mom, too!
Case in point…. Notice anything wrong with this picture?
Well, what about this one?
Did you notice that those shirts are hung up inside out??? Cause they are!!
Yes, my latest lazy habit (not Lazy habit, mind you) is hanging the clothes up as they come out of the dryer.
I have turned over a new leaf in the laundry department of our house. However you send down your dirty clothes in the chute, is how you will get them back. If they are inside out, or have one sleeve tucked down itself, or whatever, there you go… back at’cha the same way!
And just so you don’t think anyone is immune…
School shirts aren’t safe anymore….
Little girl shirts aren’t safe anymore….
Church shirts aren’t safe….
Husband shirts aren’t safe…..
Yes, even MY shirts aren’t safe anymore…. (hey, I believe in being fair!)
Now, in my defense, I have (up until yesterday) been very religous about turning the clothes the right side out and fixing any drowning sleeves and such. So for almost 10 years of marriage I’ve been doing this for everyone in the household as they’ve each joined the scene.
And just so you realize that even though my new lazy habit is not just that…. lazy, I’d like to point out, that this will also help aid me in my Lazy Mom endeavors.
Now each child (and adult) will be responsible for putting their clothes down the chute the way they want them back. See?! There is a method to my madness. For real. I just don’t do things for the heck of it. I have a point. And the point is that my kids (and husband) are old enough to turn their clothes right side out before launching them down the laundry chute. IF they want to get them back that way.
If they don’t, then who cares?! I certainly won’t. Remember this story?
The clothes are still clean and hung up (or folded — well, most of the time anyway). So does it REALLY matter how they come back to them?
Only if they do.
