It turns out I’m a Slacker Mom.
According to this snippet I found in Redbook magazine, that is. It’s all in good fun, mind you.
I do everything listed. Is that bad?
Let’s go over the things that are mentioned:
Dutch: Yup, we’ve had Dutch before. It’s rare though, as I love to eat and my stomach seems to go off every two hours.
meTunes: Definitely. There is no way I put on children’s music in my car. I get enough of the awful music from Nick, Jr. I’m not about to put it on when I run errands.
Cupfakes: I do this on the health of my children’s classmates. I wouldn’t want to accidentally poison anyone. I’m not the greatest cook. So to be safe, I always buy store brought products and hope there isn’t one of those “anal” parents in the class who spout on about health and blah blah blah, and how everyone should bring in carrots and blah blah blah. Screw carrots. Who wants to eat carrots during a special occasion?
Wardrobe Momfunction: I do get dressed when I drop Natalie off at preschool (Tommy takes the bus) but there have been days when I’ve forgotten to brush my hair. I don’t know how this happens. Probably because I’m not a morning person so the only thing my brain can remember is to do is get dressed (which I’m thankful for.) My hair is completely forgotten. Once when I did brush my hair another parent was like, “Oh, your hair looks different, did you do something with it?” I replied, “Yes. It’s brushed.”
Swathing: Er…well, sometimes after swim lessons I’m like, “No bath today! Survivor is coming on in a bit. You guys were submerged in water, that’s enough.”
So. Are you a Slacker Mom too?
