Lazy Moms find ways to make life simpler. We have to. We’re lazy.
So I’m instituting a new feature on the Lazy Mom blog –> Lazy Mom Tips. These are tips that make life easier for lazy moms (not for perfect moms, because if we were all perfect moms we wouldn’t need these tips because we would have everything together and never ever need to simplify anything).
So the first Lazy Mom Tip is for those times that you feed your kids in the car. You know, that little thing that perfect moms would never do, but lazy moms do quite regularly? Yeah, that.
A friend showed me a great item to keep in the car for those lazy moments of car feeding. These handy dandy trays:
These trays make car feedings go A LOT more smoothly than ever before. Buy you a stack of these bad boys and say goodbye to fumbling with flimsy cheeseburger wrappers for good! These trays not only provide a sturdy place for the burger, they also have room for the french fries, the drink and … (hold your breath)… even the ketchup! *GASP*
I keep a stack of these little beauties in-between my seats to pull out at a moments notice. I even bought a tray in each of my Little Darlings’ favorite colors, to keep the arguing down (I know. I’m brilliant). I can’t tell you enough how much I love this Lazy Mom Tip. It makes me so happy I want to scream with delight!
Oops, that one escaped me because of the sheer happiness I’m feeling in just telling you about this! Sorry.
So where do you buy these amazing trays? You can find them at Walmart and the Dollar General usually. They run about $1 each. I love my trays so much I bought two more sets for each Little Darling to eat off of at home. I think it’s the compartments that make me like it. I love compartments. Compartments make life easier, don’t you agree?
Anyway. For clean up I occasionally take them inside and throw them in the dishwasher, but the real lazy mom way to clean them is the way I normally do it 99% of the time – buy you some handy dandy anti-bacterial wipes and give them a once over before you plate the food up.
So go forth and buy you some car feeding trays! You can thank me later.
