    Our tv is on all day. They dony sit and watch it all day, but its always on.

    My kids eat far too much packaged foods and DS2 eats so many nutella sandwiches that im sure he'll turn into one one day.

    We dont always eat together as a family. DS1 & DS2 eat together in front of their tv and DH and I eat after they've gone to bed.

    I have so much unfolded washing that their drawers are almost completely empty - its all clean but just dumped on the floor of my walk in robe.

    There is so much more.

    Dd is currently eating cup noodles for dinner, last night was bacon and eggs, the night before was latina pasta and sauce... pregnancy is really making me too lazy to cook at night.

    Dd (2 1/2) goes to bed with a bottle. It's her comfort and I feel bad taking it away.

    I leave my kids in the car while I pay for petrol or duck into the post office.

    I put the tv on so DH and I can DTD in the middle of the day.

    DS gets more than his recommended one hour of screen time a day. He also eats too much sugar and French fries.

    I am bribing him with jellybeans to use the toilet.

    I let him climb on the couch and play semi-unsupervised on the deck or in his sandpit if I'm busy.

    Kids in the car when paying for petrol.
    DD knows how to use the foxtelIQ.
    Easy Mac and 'the M shop' are featured regularly on the menu - at least twice a week for the whole 1st and 3rd trimesters.
    Some nights we run out of time for a bath/shower for kids.
    Almost all meals in front of the telly.
    I can go to bed and sleep soundly with dirty dishes on the bench.

    Where to start.

    I struggle to maintain a clean house all the time.
    Ds eats a fair bit of packaged food at the moment because we have a tiny kitchen that makes baking difficult.
    I'm another who doesn't have insurance on anything.

    I'll come back for more. DS just finished gymnastics.

    I love this!
    My dd (2) has spaghetti and Cheerios for dinner more often than I'd ever admit.

    She can operate an iPhone/iPad

    She bargains with me to watch cartoons - my turn - then your turn (she reckons)

    I'm glad to share my exceptional parenting strategies. Ditto the vacuum cleaner & just today the hair dryer.

    My kidlets watch a fair bit of tv and even when they are not watching it its still on.

    Eat at the table.... Pfft hardly ever!

    I bribe my kids with treats I do!

    And yep my kids don't always get bathed daily

    I'm sure there's more
