Oh how I miss being lazy!
Kids are just such high maintenance – “I want lunch”, “wipe my bum”, “unhook me from the washing line”, “let me in the house – it’s raining”.
Today my boys asked for macaroni for lunch, well the one that could speak did.
He was quite upset when I gave him a bowl of pasta, without cheese sauce.
I tried to explain it was Fug All Friday – he didn’t get it – strange that.
I wish someone would invent a kids feeding system like they have for cats, where they tap a container and food rolls out the bottom.
Even a toddler-sized cat flap would be handy – especially one with a lock
I find Fridays extremely annoying after a long week, I just want to do diddly squat but kids make that impossible.
A few months ago I wrote about my F*%K All Friday policy – where I do nothing all day (it explains the rules and ’tis quite amusing).
It’s kinda hard to let go – but with practise you too can transform your Friday into a day of sloth.
Start with letting the kids do whatever they want!
This frees you up to do useless shit such as playing on your phone, blogging, and taking lots of selfies with your kids.
Usually they’re keen to oblige as are high on the bucket loads of sugar you gave them to keep them away from you for five minutes.
If you’ve succeeded in hiding from the
ferals wee darlings for 10 minutes (usually by locking yourself in the toilet) – use this time wisely.
Whatever you do don’t waste it by doing the dishes, the washing or removing porridge stuck to your child’s forehead.
Try your hardest to ignore any thoughts of what to cook for dinner and DO NOT pick up any toys.
I figure that surely one day a week I can do fug all without feeling guilty.
And realistically it’s not as though I’ve done nothing all day.
This is what I’ve done:
1. Fed, dressed and wiped three kids’ bums all before 8am.
2. WALKED to school, at one stage all three were on the stroller as we were late and I had to run – what a sight!
3. Cooked pasta, put spoons in bowls, cut apple and unwrapped lollipops.
4. Opened the back door and encouraged them to go outside – they didn’t want to – even after I told them rain would make them grow strong!
5. Stood in front of fridge and cupboard for five minutes so the boys couldn’t raid it for more lollies.
See I haven’t been completely useless!
And I will TOTALLY tell the Husband I’ve spent all day chasing after kids, tidying up and that the mess was made five minutes before he walked in the door.
Did you have a lazy Friday? Are you capable of doing nothing and not feel guilty?
Finally a blog just for FYBF!!!
