DD2 stuck in the toy box. If its funny & the kids aren't in immediate danger, I will always take a photo before helping them.
DS got a day off today after spending half an hour on the toilet because I couldn't be bothered taking DD1&2 with me to fill out a late form.
School related stuff bores the hell out of me & I tell DS that the babies make it hard for me to be involved.
We have 2 laundry baskets in each bedroom, one for clean clothes & one for dirty and just get clothes out of the clean basket.
I go to a friends house every Friday night so I can get out of the house & I get resentful if I can't go for any reason.

-DD is 21 months old and asks for "chocolate and biccies" every day...yes she pronounces chocolate correctly. (She doesnt get chocolate every day).
-We have takeaway at least one a week and DD loves cheeseburgers.
-She has to have a little bit of my cup of tea before i finish it or world war 3 starts.
-When we are home the tv is on all day and not on cartoons because i dont like them.
-Both DH and I work full time so DD is at daycare for 9 hours a day (45 hours a week)
-I leave DD in the car to pay for petrol.
-I bribe her with my phone to get her to stay still so i can change her nappy.
-She has a small amout of cordial or juice mixed with water in her drink bottle.
-DH and i are currently teaching her to call her poppy a monkey just because we think its funny.

Does anyone else loathe putting kids/babies to bed? The whole drama of getting them down for a sleep (day or night)? Both of mine are quite hard to get down and I have come to hate it. I'd almost rather they just stayed up. The other night I'd put the baby to bed and DH was about to take the toddler in for his bedtime routine, as usual. I said "I can put him to bed if you want to watch the rugby". But I think my flat, unenthusiastic tone told him that really wasn't going to happen! Yes, I'm not just a great mother but an awesome wife too!!!
Does anyone's child actually get the amount of sleep the experts reckon they are 'supposed' to have???

Also I cant wait until DS3 can stay awake for longer between naps - so many naps makes school drop off and pick ups hell.

I used to tell my kids that the reason the ice cream trucks ring their bell is to tell people they have no ice cream left.

-DD has had Macca's fries and tasted soft drink from my glass. She has also had (and loves, not surprisingly) chocolate and has diluted juice.
-I throw her full nappies straight out of the bedroom door (from my bed, they land down the hall) after her change during the night because I can't be bothered walking to the kitchen bin. I collect them the next morning, lol. (never pooey ones though!)
-ABC kids on TV on A LOT. But I don't see a problem with this one; we play all day long, she looks at the telly occasionally and really enjoys her shows, dances to the songs etc, claps when her fave show comes on etc.. she learns from them.
-I, like many others, have a massive pile of clean, unfolded washing. DH and DS call it the mountain. DS: "Mum, where's my T-shirt?" DH: "Check mum's mountain".
-I give DD my car keys to play with and pretend I don't see her sucking them (she loves them!) especially when we're shopping and she's screaming in the trolley seat.. "here, have my keys.."
-I haven't cleaned DS's bedroom since he was, like 8. I say it's teaching him responsibilty etc.. but it's really because I cbf doing it. He does such a half as$ed job and I only thoroughly clean it for him when we're having company over.
- Ironing. Hahahaha. Ironing... only when the item of clothing is about to be worn do I iron it (if it needs it). I can't believe people iron habitually before folding and putting clothes away.
-I put a layer of foil on the bottom of the oven so all I have to do when cleaning it is remove the old foil and put a fresh sheet down.
