    I'm currently on the couch in my dressing gown with a cuppa while DS plays YouTube vids on the computer. I only use my dryer. The kids diet is very plain and repetitive.

    I sometimes take a day off from work and send the kids to Childcare still so I can have a day to myself and just laze around.

    These ones are all really great ideas (smart - not lazy!), thanks!

    Yep I'm lazy
    I do do a lot of activities with the kids, but am lazy with housework and food.
    I try to give them some fruit and veggies every day, but they definitely eat way too many chippies/popcorn/rice crackers etc because they're so easy.
    House work is my main lazy. As clothes get dirty I put them straight in the machine, turn it on once it's full, and then the clean load goes straight in the dryer. Once it's dry I pull it out and seperate it into piles of which belongs to who, and that's how it stays. I never ever fold and put away clothes.
    I vaccume our lounge room, A LOT. Like multiple times a day. But the tiled areas get very little love. My mop is lucky to come out twice a year. I often spot clean the floor with wipes.

    By the way I really love this thread. Sometimes I feel like I'm truly the only person on the planet that does these sorts of things and doesn't feed my kids organic home cooked meals, and bake goodies every day, and hang out washing and spend my evenings folding and putting away clothes.

    Hi I'm Nomsie and I'm a long-time lazy mum, first time admitter!

    So I do things like sleep with dd for every sleep because I don't want to face up to sleep training.

    My house is always in need of some form of cleaning, but a usual day is only one run of the dishwasher, one run of the washing machine and a sweep of the floors in the kitchen/ dining.

    I'm worried the workers at the maccas/ KFC drive thrus know me by name.

    I let my boys play too much wii/ ds. But it means I don't have to play with them so it makes me happy.

    Dd will often crawl off out of sight an it could be a good 10-15 mins before I go to find her. It's nice to have respite from her. If the boys are home ill call out to them every few mins to check on her.

    Dd eats a lot of bread, rice cakes and arrowroot biscuits because I'm tired of giving her fruit and veg only to pick it all up off the floor for the next 10 mins until I give up.

    None of my kids are in any sort of organised activities, and with the exception of mums group when the boys were babies, never have been. Can't be bothered.

    I actually don't think any of this is too bad-i'm a single mum so I plead my case that I should get to cut a few corners!
    I love the bbg in the park idea, brilliant!

    So I have one that might cause some judgement.

    The next 2 days are sports carnival days at DD and DS1's school but instead of making them go I am letting them stay home so I can stay in bed.

    P.S I love that little mini BBQ in the park! It's a brilliant idea not lazy and something your kids will always remember

    - DD3 watches too much ABC kids

    Oh I've got another one, which some people might see as the opposite of lazy, but I feel otherwise. I let kids wander around with snacks and food rather than making them sit at a table and eat it. I just find it easier to run a quick vaccume around after they're done, then to deal with having to keep telling them to sit back at the table or whatever over and over. and then have to clean up the table. I love my Dyson.

    Also the Dyson stays permanently plugged in with the chord unwound. It is never EVER put away. Takes pride of place in the lounge room.
