I screen my calls and pretend I'm not home to avoid certain people.
I sneak my sons Easter eggs - but he gets given waaayyyy too many and never notices
If I've had a rough night with bub sometimes I put him in his cot to sleep then have a sleep myself while my almost 4 year old entertains himself - It doesn't happen often but once he'd even eaten 3 bananas and got himself a drunk cos he said he was hungry and didn't want to wake me!!
This is just awesome! I do about 90% of these
My personal fave is telling my DH that it is his turn to change DD2 every time she poos. He's started to catch on, and it's getting harder to convince him that "No, I changed one while you were at the shops /asleep last night / in the toilet." But honestly, he works away for 5 weeks at a time, so when he gets home I think they're ALL his turn anyway!
Oh and with my new pregnancy exhaustion, I've been making DD2 go for a nap early so I can sleep too. School days this is okay, but on weekends I feel bad because I leave my DD1 (5yo) with something to eat in front of the tv while I pass out for a while. Bad parenting, self.
If we don't have heaps of something yummy for dinner I'll serve up more for me and push the pile of whatever in so it looks like I have less than him.
I eat chocolate in the bath. And stash the wrapper so he doesn't know. Sometimes I cough loudly when I'm scrunching it up so he doesn't know.
I secretly watch trashy TV.
I don't shave my legs often. And shave my armpits about once a month in winter.
I am sometimes stalker ish and watch my baby sleep with a smile on my face because I'm so in love with him!
Dp, Dd1 & Dd2 are all away for the weekend.
I gave 11 month old DD3 a bottle for dinner instead of cooking food. I ate sticky date pudding and caramel ice cream.
The house looks feral and I have no intention of cleaning it till monday aftternoon when they are due home.
I am now drinking coke out of the big bottle instead of a glass, eating tiramisu and watching tv.
Oh and I haven't had a shower today and not going to. Lol. Stinker.
This thread is awesome!!!!!
My DH has mild OCD I am deliberately bad at cleaning, so he cleans the house from top to bottom once a week.... I haven't cleaned in 3 years .
I over play the pregnant card.
Even to the point I get DH to do my washing ( my washing is the only thing I usually do).
I sit in a hot bath just so DH will leave me alone.
I always say things are old even if they are new, or they were way cheaper then they were.
I brought a juicer and said my mum gave me the money.
I say I'm going to study at uni then go to lunch with my girlfriends. And then I ignore my phone.
i dont fold any washing and it never ends up in draws... i hate it.
i put 2 sugars in my hot choc
i dont remember how to iron
im addicted to pokemon and sailor moon
i secretly buy stuff of ebay all the time, and when they arrive say their from mum and dad.
i really couldnt care when i see the inlaws again as i havnt seen them in almost a yr. they live 20 mins away.
i hate cleaning so before do gets home i just run around doing crazy stuff to try and make it look like iv done something.
i have laybys on that dp dosnt know about for this ttc baby because for once i want some new stuff, both for dd and ds we used second hand stuff, but i want some stuff just for this one
i record my little pony "for the kids" but they never end up watching it for long so i sit their watching it
i dont wash the bed sheets for ages becuase they take ages to dry as we dont have a clothes line, just those clothes hoists.
ummmm what else, this has made me feel good hahaha
sometimes shovel stuff in my mout coz im in a rush to eat it before dp gets home coz i dont want him seeing me eating them. then when he is home i limit what i eat
