It’s been a while since we’ve had a good Lazy Mom Confession around here, so I thought I’d prime the pump a little and post one so that more of you will spill the beans on your own selves.
One can hope that you would spill the beans on your own selves anyway.
Now, about this confession. It seriously may be a perfect Lazy Mom Confession. Why, you ask? Just read it…
I’ve been buying frozen breakfast sandwiches and taught my kids how to heat them up. I tell people it’s so they can learn how to be independent, but it’s really so that my kids will let me sleep in after The Mister has gone to work. ~ Elaine
Hahaha, ho ho, hehehehe. LOVE IT.
So here’s why I think this is a perfect Lazy Mom Confession….
First of all, If you’ve been reading our Parenting the Lazy Mom Way series (which I hope to post the next one tomorrow), then you already know that being a lazy mom isn’t necessarily about being lazy. (Although, it does have it’s lazy moments, okay, a lot of them). But it’s more about teaching our kids how to do things for themselves so that we aren’t the type of moms that do everything for their kids. This confession, captures that.
She gets 10 Lazy Mom bonus points for that alone.
Second of all, this confession makes other moms feel better about themselves. Am I right? I mean, Elaine bought the frozen breakfast sandwiches so that her kids would learn how to do something for themselves (another 10 Lazy Mom bonus points for that) BUT they were also so she could get some more sleep (let’s go ahead and give Elaine 20 bonus points for that) because who says getting more sleep makes her a bad mom? NOT ME.
In fact, I think she may downright be a smart mom. Plus, here’s another “get more sleep idea” I fully support and recommend for your sleeping pleasure.
Third of all, er, thirdly, Elaine has just done something I truly appreciate… kept it real. I’m all. about. that. She has taken off her “super mom mask” and told us how it really is. Here’s a post where I do just that. Because Elaine did this, that gets her, get ready for it, 50 Lazy Mom bonus points!
Wow. That brings her Lazy Mom bonus points to 90! (Right? I’ve never been good at
Now, who else wants
a bunch of useless bonus points??? Submit your Lazy Mom Confessions and bare your souls in front of us all. Muahahaha!
