Now, we recognize this may not be possible, being that Lazy Mom’s Day falls on a school day this year, which is not a time moms have traditionally been able to unwind. But if your partner’s work schedule allows, ask them to lead the school prep duties. Prepare what you can the night before and hide under the covers until the bus arrives.
If your kids haven’t started school yet, enjoy some extra zzzs this last summer Friday by laying out bowls pre-filled with your kids’ favorite cereal and covered in plastic wrap the night before. Put a cup full of milk on a low refrigerator shelf that they can pour in themselves. Then instruct them to watch TV or their iPad until you get up. Alexa-enabled remote controls can also work wonders for little ones who still don’t know how to channel surf. They can pop down and tell it to “Put on Disney Jr.” while you snooze.
