I do many of the mentioned things. Only bathe ds ever few nights. It's good for his skin right?
Never sort washing. It all goes in together..
About to hire a cleaner even though I'll only be working 3 days a week. I could technically do it all on my day off but want to cuddle ds instead
I hardly ever clean the shower. My showers are like 3 minutes long so I don't have time to notice it.
Sometimes I hang back at the gym whilst ds is in the crèche just playing on my phone.

Oh yes, everything goes in my dishwasher too, weather it says it's dishwasher safe or not. If it gets ruined, I say we shouldn't own it anyway. Same with any clothes that get ruined in the dryer. If they can't go through the dryer, don't buy them.

I dunno if any of this classifies people as a "lazy Mum", just a Mum who needs a break and doesn't worry all the time about being perfect!
BUT if all of these things make me a lazy Mum, then I'm happy to own the title:
- DD often watches TV if I need to concentrate on other things
- I bought her a mini-laptop so she would stop bugging me, sit next to me and pretend to "work" while I do actual work on my days at home (on my working from home days she's usually home with me)
- have never been to any local playgroups (but sometimes go to Mum's group)
- still drinks a bottle of milk before bed at night ("I'm still a baby Mummy!")
- not toilet trained at 2.5 years - struggling to comprehend how we will find a solid block of time at home to make that happen, guess I will have to take some annual leave and hope like heck it works during that time!
- refuse to sit next to her while eating ANY meals as she has this habit of grabbing and leaning on my arm every time I try raising my fork to my mouth, resulting in near eye-poking!
- still sleeps in a cot (trust me, this one's necessary), even though she's about the size of the average 5 year old.

I no longer have the strength to argue with DS about his love of dog biscuits. When he sneaks in and grabs a handful, I usually let him eat them.

Oh, my 13 month old also sleeps on a queen size mattress on the floor of his bedroom, shoved between the wall and the lower part of the ensemble so he can't fall out. That way when he wakes up, I can go in there and sleep with him for the night, rather than having to get up every single time he wakes. I only have to get up once.

I am also a lazy mum - maybe not lazy mum, but a lazy house wife?!!!
My house is trashed, I have a little motivation to clean / tidy it but no energy - today I still need to so some washing, tidy, the dishes, floors and bathrooms... and now I'm going to make a coffee...
I have today taken DD2 to swimming!
ETA: my kids eat fast food, packet food, chicken nuggets and most days I forget to do their hair and brush their teeth... I do try, I promise!

yeah, I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a lazy mum, but I am definitely a lazy wife, lazy housekeeper, lazy cook, lazy lazy lazy. Haha
