    Ha ha, great thread! Will have to go back for more of a read.

    Dd1 ate a whole tim-tam at 7 months old.

    I have always left the kids in the car when paying for petrol - actually I thought everyone did until I joined BH.

    My girls play with Barbie dolls.

    I hate co-sleeping and my babies slept in their own bedroom from birth.

    My girls have had "girl only" birthday parties

    Can also relate to the washing piles!

    Am sure I'll think of more when I go back and read everyone else's posts!

    I google "starving children in Africa" photos & show them to dd when she doesn't eat her dinner. Not so she has an appreciation of how good she has it - but to show her how she'll look if she doesn't eat.

    I have a hall cupboard and a double wardrobe filled with the to-be-sorted washing. That way it is at least "out of sight".

    So I'm 8 months pregnant and have a lovely 2.5yr DS. I'm also lazy and believe in making life easy.

    I see nothing wrong with leaving DS in car to pay for petrol.
    The only vegie he eats at the moment is chickpeas.
    I send him to daycare even if I don't have to work.
    He watches ABC for kids while I shower, nap, surf the net etc.
    He loves the ipad and knows how to use it better than me.
    He doesn't bathe everyday and I often leave the bathroom while he is in the bath (still within earshot though).
    I don't care if he eats off the floor. He dropped a cupcake at a party at a park and the icing stuck to the concrete so he got down on his stomach to lick it off the ground. I didn't try to stop him.
    I don't do dishes (it's DH's job) and am really slack about even wiping down the bench or table. Might do it once a week.
    Our bedsheets probably get changed about once a month. Bath towels only changed when they start to smell.
    I think we do own an iron but on the rare occasion one of us needs to wear something that needs ironing we just get it drycleaned.
    I can't believe people actually fold laundry. I just keep buying more hampers and we have at least one each and another for linen and we just grab our clothes out of them when needed. Wrinkles disappear after a bit of wear.
    When DS drank from bottles I just kept buying more bottles and teats so I didn't have to wash them. If he just had water in the bottle it probably got reused for several days without washing. Same with his drink bottles now but they probably go weeks without washing.
    DS will sometimes wear the same nappy all day (not poopy).

    I have showed DD videos of starving African kids. Not to get her to eat but because she whinged about how she never gets anything blah blah blah. I showed her what having nothing looks like.

    Some people would probably disagree with doing that but I think she needed a reality check.

    Recently on a particularly bad morning, when the kids were driving me mental, I put them in the creche, bludged on the treadie for 30 mins, had a shower, and sat in the cafe area and read my book for an hour. I was kind of like exercise!
    When I was pregnant, I would take my daughter to the creche and go straight to the cafe at the gym. Then I would tell my husband, yep, I went to the gym today.

    Agreed. Mil rolled her eyes at me when I told her what I did. But sometimes shock value tactics works.

    I don't bath my kids everyday for the pure fact I pay $1500 a year for water and will tell them that if they ask for a bath 2 days in a row.I live in a complex and let them outside to play unsupervised,but go out and yell "CAR!!!!!" when I can hear a car coming.Today DS whos 4 had DH's powerdrill and was drilling trees while I wasn't looking (to make me feel better I was actually cleaning at said time!lol)My neighbour and I drink too much wine together too much which = kids playing skylanders half the night and eating chicken nuggets for dinner.My 8yo watches Home and Away with me every night,its at the point where he will change the channel to 7 anytime after 6pm to make sure hes not missing it.I swear like a trooper but loose my sh!t when my kids try to do it....yet I don't stop LOL.Oh and when my kids wont go to sleep I tell them Ive had enough and will throw them outside and the monsters will get them!uummm soooooo much more.....
