Confessions of a Lazy Mom

1. I only make the beds when we're having company.
2. I don't make my 4-year-old keep his room clean.
3. Clean, folded laundry often sits in the laundry baskets until I need the baskets to do more laundry.

Here's hoping these confessions make someone feel superior, because that's always fun (for you, anyway)! I have more (worse) confessions of a Lazy Mom, but you have to confess something to me first. ;)

LOL,sounds like me!! Here is my confession, there are times when the boys will wear the same clothes, or shirt for like 2 days, meaning to bed too!. I mean, if they fall asleep with their clothes on, I am not going to wake them up just to put them in PJs, and then if the outfit isn't that dirty, why dirty a new one if we arn't going anywhere! LOL. I know, totally lazy. :-P

I don't even make the beds when we have company company....I just don't care.

At almost all times, I have 3 loads of laundry waiting to be folded on my couch. When company comes, I throw it on the bed and cover it with the unmade covers.

I haven't mopped my kitchen floor in almost 3 weeks. No lie. I just don't have the time, but it's on my list for tomorrow, if I can keep it swept that long.


I can't even tell you that last time *my* room was cleaned, but I do make the kids clean theirs. I am SUCH a hyprocrite like that.

You learned from the master.
I often don't make my bed unless I have company that is staying overnight, or who may get a tour of my new house. Hey, if the company is going near the bedrooms...
I often leave clean UNFOLDED laundry in the basket until I need it.
I don't do dishes until I run out of some item, such as bowls or spoons. In the past I bought more bowls and spoons so I didn't have to do dishes as often.

I definitely always have my clean folded laundry in the basket until I absolutely need to use the basket, and I like Kathryn let Piper wear the same clothes for 2 days and I also never mop my floors enough...usually once a month....sometimes less....don't tell anyone. I vaccuum every couple days though to get up all the hairballs!
