We eat all our meals on the couch (me and DH) and the kids have kiddie ikea table and chairs next to us and eat there. I don't think we've ever used our dining table and chairs unless we've had family over.
I just woke up and ran to my phone to check out the updates on this thread.. It's 5.30am and I'm sitting here shaking and snorting with laughter
I feed dd an apple a day, not cause its healthy but because they keep her quiet / occupied for ages - and I put her in front of the tv to do so.
She has my old galaxy with no sim that I give her in bed next to me in the morning to play on so I get more sleep.
When she starts nagging me for breakfast I sometimes give her some in her highchair and put a movie on and go back to bed till she starts calling for me
On the weekends dh and I to get a sleep in give her snacks before brekkie and set her up in the lounge with a movie while we sleep in
Shes toilet trained but wears nappies for naps / bedtime still so If I think shes gonna fall asleep in the car on the way home from somewhere ( a short journey) I sometimes put a nappy on outside of her clothes to catch wee cause I cant b bothered taking her clothes off then putting them on again
I take her to indoor playgrounds and relax with a cuppa and buy myself a gourmet lunch but bring her a vegemite and cheese sandwich from home
I give her chuppa chups and a roll from bakers delight everytime we go food shopping.
I put her in occasional care once a fortnight at the local kindy just for some peace and quiet.
I yell sometimes too. ( not great but I reach end of my teather at times)
Ill think of more im sure.....

I'm far too lazy to itemise my average parent moments.
Omg I am loving this thread.
Ds is awake in his cot but I refuse to get him up because it isn't 7 and I want some me time.
I put ds (10 months) in front of the tv with abc2 on so I can clean or even juwt get some peace if we are having a really whingy day.
I am too lazy to clean the left over food from ds so I let the dog in to lick it up.
Most of the time I DON'T then wipe said highchair down even though I tell people I do.
The dog gives ds kisses, ds opens his mouth and sticks his tongue out. I don't try to stop it I just sit back and laugh.
Probably way more but I can't think of them right now.
DS when he hears the ice cream van will be like hey mum you hear that? I always say no darling I don't you must be crazy. Haha he just walks off.
I use my daughter as a personal 'getterer' like 'dd can you get me the remote/your brothers dummy/a tissue/a drink of water'
