You put cereal in individual Ziploc bags for your kids in the evening and turn the TV channel to PBS on a low volume… so that when your kids get up in the morning you can have an extra half hour to sleep!
This is a perfect Lazy Mom Confession for a Saturday morning submitted by lazy mom Alanya.
I too am guilty of this little guilty pleasure. If you remember, I like to sleep so when a fellow mom told me about the above trick I knew it was for me! Execpt, this mom would leave a bowl of cereal out on the counter and a small cup of milk in the fridge for them to pour on their cereal when they got up! The kids would watch cartoons and the mom and dad would sleep in a little longer!
I actually love this small act of laziness! My kids are all old enough to get out of bed and turn on the TV. If it’s turned down low then it won’t wake the others… or myself. And if their “breakfast” is ready then they can eat while they are entertained. The girls will wake me when they need something… or damage control needs to be done (aka- fighting).
Isn’t that just brilliant?! And perfectly lazy. I love it!
