    I wish I wasn't so OCD about how my washing gets folded or I could pay the kids to do it.

    They don't do the greatest job, but they're improving. I like to tell them I am equipping them with basic life skills, and that they will thank me for it! I also pay them to weed the garden, sweep, take out rubbish/recycling and dust

    I send my DS to school with a butter sandwich :-/

    For the last two weeks I've let the kids sleep in my bed and watch movies to go sleep. I needed the snuggles.

    They watch far too much tv and YouTube but do plenty of sport so I don't mind too much.

    Ds1 goes through two jars of nutella a fortnight as he has it on bread every morning for breakfast and usually as an after school snack....... it's white bread too.

    I like wine. Lots.

    Sometimes I do the school run on Monday and Friday in my pjs and slippers, Ds2 is in his pjs too.

    Ds2 is in daycare three days a week so I can 'study' via distance but the course is so easy I maybe only study 2 days out of 9.

    Right now I'm on here instead of watching Ds1 do his swimming lesson :-/

    Sometimes if my kids have a fever I'll give them nurofen and send them to day care anyway. ...

    I am loving the washing photos! I seriously hate folding washing - despise it with a passion - so I just think - as long as clothes are clean then I am happy. Which translates to me leaving them in the laundry hamper and just using clothes straight from it. I have 4 full ones of clean clothes in the living room - and was even thinking I could someone how make some type of cupboard, that would fit laundry hampers in them? Just so I could hide them away cause they are annoying....but not clearly annoying enough for me to actually fold the clothes and put them away. Doh!

    We have an outside laundry so folding up always ends up in the lounge room. Once the pile was so high the next morning when DS got up he was angry his 'mountain' was gone.

    Ok well we eat junk,
    My Dd would live on yogurt if I let her, they play the iPad way to much, I shoo them outside to play so I can eat during the day without them stealing it, I gave my 6 month old a potato chip... He didn't eat it but just squished it.
    I struggle to keep up with the house work and as a result our washing is never folded and the dryer is my best friend.
    I love wild turkey
    I let my 4 and 3 yr old run around outside with out me with no shoes on
    I'm addicted to eBay

    That's all I can think of right now lol

    Edit: potato chip- hot chips
