Being a mom is not easy. No matter how well you try to plan ahead, it always seems as though there just aren't enough hours in the day.
But 1 mother from Brisbane, Australia, has come up with a rather strange solution to her parenting woes. Lisa Lamond, star of Aussie home renovation show House Rules, has hit headlines with her claims that she puts her kids to bed wearing their clothes for the next day. Speaking to Whimn, she called her trick, "the best piece of advice I’ve been given" - but the internet is unconvinced.
Motherhood is kind of magical.The feeling of love you have for your kids is totally unique - and totally amazing.
And there's a lot of great parts to it.The fun and happiness of sharing your life with your little bundles of joy are basically unbeatable.
Which isn't to say motherhood is one long walk in the park.No matter how rewarding it is, it can also be the most stressful experience on the planet. Forgive us for stating the obvious, but kids are not easy.
And one area where this is particularly true?In terms of time. As any busy mother will tell you, there simply aren't enough hours in the day to get everything needed done.
But one mom has come up with an innovative solution.
She spoke to Whimn about her tips for motherhood.
Her kids are at the age where they crave independence."My daughters like to dress themselves from head to toe," Lisa told Whimn.
And as fun as that is...For those under time constraints, it's just not realistic. "On days I’m working in particular, I don’t have a spare hour while they pull up one sock."
So she shared her (slightly odd) tip."The best piece of advice I’ve been given is to dress your kids the night before in the clothes you want them to go out in."
She claims this advice has absolutely changed her life.She just needs to wake up, change a couple of nappies, put on some shoes, and she's good to go. "It works wonders for me and where I'm at in life at the moment."
Amazing, right?What mom couldn't use some extra time in the morning to do the million other things they need to get on with?
It's the perfect compromise.It allows the kids to still feel as though they're doing what they please - but without messing up Mom's entirely too stressful morning routine.
Although not everyone is pleased.
@celebliverpool @LivEchonews Lazy parenting. Basically translates to she needs more time to slap on her makeup— Mr.Bump (@Mr.Bump)1572613671.0
