    Really? Where do I start?
    DS owns way too much technology- he's probably the most cashed up kid I know, and I'm thinking of adding to it for his upcoming birthday and christmas!
    He has a birthday party every year.
    We don't always get through his homework.
    He doesn't have a shower/bath every day.
    His school shirts have stains on them that I have given up on getting out.
    I allow DS to watch some youtube videos with swearing in it.

    Geez- I'm painting such a good picture, arn't I!

    Ds3 covered himself and the couch in sudocream yesterday.... His big brother brought him into me in the lounge room... I considered giving it back to him as it was sooo peaceful for 10 minutes while I was drinking my morning coffee...ive also given him packets of tissues or wipes for 5 minutes peace...

    Ooh I'd love a bit of drunken smokering. Nothing like a bit of morning breath smoker's regret to make you remember why you quit.
    Not only do I love to have a tipple, I love to have a tipple at the pub. I wish I lived near one of those "acceptable" places you can take the kids to and have a drink. RSLs and the like.
    I miss being my own person dreadfully, are we allowed to do that as parents? I genuinely cannot wait until my kids grow up a bit and become more autonomous.
    I like to take an occasional punt on horse and or dog racing. Animal cruelty, gambling and a poor role model rolled in to one. When the kids are older I will definitely take them to the track for big race meets. (Flame away!).
    I tell my two year old I'm "doing Uni" when I'm really doing this.
    Oh and NOTHING is insured, oh the humanity! *sob*

    Lol, love this thread!

    Ds1 has always been a sh!t sleeper, we still have to laydown with him until he falls asleep.
    Ds2 is equally as sh!t at it, so I usually sleep on the lounge with him because I cbf being up all night putting him back into his cot.
    Dd has way too many techno gadgets and spends too much time on them.
    We too terrorise our kids for laughs. Weve taught ds1 to pick his nose and chase dd around the house with booger on his finger.
    I love wine, and this shows usually twice a week.
    I also smoke, gives me a 5 minute break outside.
    I have often caught ds1 wandering around the backyard poking dog poo with a stick.

    I leave the kids in the car while I pay for petrol/ go into the post office/ return the shopping trolley/ really quickly run into the supermarket.

    DH encourages 2yr old DS to swear. I hate it, DH thinks it's cute.

    We have junk food occasionally.

    We eat in front of the TV every night.

    The kids watch way too much TV.

    Sometimes I don't change DS nappy straight away after he's done #2. If he's happy playing I leave him be.

    I quite often change DS nappy on the floor in the public toilets if there is no change table.

    This morning I have let the dog come inside for dd to play with so I can have some peace and quiet.

    I often will put tv on and get dd water/milk and some fruit in the mornings so I can go back to bed.

    Sometimes if its cold/wet I wont take dd to her swimming lesson because I just want to stay home and do nothing

    Glad I am not alone in drunk smoking. The regret the next morning is generally enough to remind me why I am no longer a real smoker and only a drunk smoker too.

    I doubt bh would endorse a drunk smoking catchup, hehe, but it does sound mighty appealing.

    We could all leave our kids in the car eating horse carrots while we have a drunken smokering catch up at a Maccas car park?
