    We like to joke around with our kids. For DS1's 8th birthday last year we gave him a box of jellybeans and made a big deal out of how cool his present was and how we didn't have much money, took photos - the whole works. Poor DS was so polite and was smiling and saying he loved them etc ... Then we wheeled in his new BMX. This year for DD2's 7th birthday we put her iPad mini in a cake stand box and did the same thing. Horrible parents!

    DS1 wants either a rock climbing or laser tag party this year but DH told him we'd already booked the fairy shop and he was having an elf and fairy party. DS looked so upset. We forgot about it, figured he knew we were joking. A few days later I asked of he'd decided between rock climbing or laser tag yet and he said 'But I thought you already booked the fairy shop?' Hahahaha! Poor kid.

    I love reading but hate reading to my kids. I haven't done any home readers in months.

    I go to uni earlier than I need to just so I can have a coffee and some grown up time.

    I don't cook. Ever. When DH went away for the weekend DS1 said 'So are we going to have takeaway all weekend?' We did.

    I bathed DS3 in a bucket (one of those big flexi tubs) in my shower for most of his first year because I couldn't be bothered walking up the stairs.

    Earlier this year I had a really bad couple of weeks with about 4 assignments due at the same time and all I was doing was uni work. DH tried to keep up with the housework but neither of us got around to folding washing for a week. Two adults and five children, this was the result ....

    I had full intentions of having a big cleaning day today, I'm still sitting in front of the tv watching a bold and the beautiful DVD in my pyjamas and am too scared to go outside as I can hear the hose going - which means DS is probably hosing himself or the washing I have on the line

We prank our kids all the time wrap up fake presents, fill empty lemonade bottles with water, pretend to eat their Lolly bags from kids parties, dh makes ds put on dd dress & dance before he says he can play the game console, eat ice cream in front of them, the list goes on. Despite all this we have 2 really well adjusted kids! Lol.
    I don't have kids yet but I stumbled across this post and have spent the morning wetting myself about most of these stories.
    Anyway I was just thinking as I came past to read "this" post again as its my favorite. And all I could think about and it was hard to think between all the laughing was that I can see when your son is 16 and he wants to borrow the car... "put on the dress"
    Goodness... you all sound like normal parents to me.

    Here's some more ..

    My kids are late to school on a regular basis. DS3 still feeds overnight (sometimes a lot) and I'm not a morning person at the best of times. I hate that they're always late and want to change so bad, but no matter how hard I try I just can't seem to be organised like most mums.

    My kids eat waaaay too much pre packaged food but there's that organisation issue again :/

    DS3 is looking like he is enjoying breastfeeding waaaay too much at 13 months for my liking! My others were weaning by now and I was so looking forward to having my body back.

    Our bed sheets get changed way less often than they should.

    DS3 did this the other night and even though I swept most of them up I keep finding him with rogue cheerios. I let him eat them.
