Mom Puts Children to Bed Wearing Next Day’s Clothes and Says It ‘Works Wonders’

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.

The feeling of love you have for your kids is totally unique – and totally amazing.

The fun and happiness of sharing your life with your little bundles of joy are basically unbeatable.

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.

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.

Lisa Lamond is a star of the Aussie home renovation show House Rules. She also runs a popular mothering Instagram account.

Lamond has two daughters, Arabella, 3, and Ruby, 2, and has faced all the classic problems mothers of youngsters fear.

“My daughters like to dress themselves from head to toe,” Lisa told Whimn.

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.”

“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 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.”

What mom couldn’t use some extra time in the morning to do the million other things they need to get on with?

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.

As ever, some have hit back at Lamond’s clever idea. Can mom’s ever do anything right?

We think your plan is pretty incredible.

Amen, Lisa. And for another incredible mom-pajama hack, keep scrolling. This idea may be even more ingenious than Lamond’s.
