Lazy Momming

Life is extremely entertaining, that is if you want it to be. A week after I took these pictures both my boys decided they don’t want to take Taekwondo anymore. Not sure what the right parenting move is at this point. Do I tell them, we don’t quit or do I say, eh it’s cool, you do you. As of now I’m going with “you do you”.

What’s funny to me though is that all of you probably think I’m a soccer mom with kids who are involved in all sorts of extra curriculars. Am I giving myself too much credit? Have y’all figured me out? I promised my kids 3 days ago that I would clean their play area with them and here I am “on Instagram again” as my younger one would put it. Yes, it’s the other way around in our house. My kids get upset with me for being on Instagram. I mean my work is mostly social media and internet related. Point being I’m a lazy mom. That has its benefits though. They have been cleaning it themselves. The process has been slower but they are working on it. They are making decisions on what goes where. Small decisions like one box for cars, one box for action figures, etc. This is teaching them how to organize their stuff, something that I used to do beyond their school bags. Lazy parenting has its benefits. I will go in the end when they’ve done most of the work and they have a sense of accomplishment to finish it up. and give it my final touches. Even now I go and just give them some ideas in a way that they think it’s their own and let them do the work. I started out with a different point, which was that not everything is as it seems. My kids are not high achievers. I am not a “have everything together” kind of mom. The activities I may have so proudly talked about are long gone because we don’t take life too seriously.

If anyone is showing you a perfect version of themselves and their life with their kids where they and their kids are making no mistakes they are not telling you the truth. Don’t let that discourage you. However you are choosing to raise your children is the right way, there are no bad kids and no bad moms just horrible humans who make other humans feel bad. ags.
