15 Clever Parenting Shortcuts for Lazy Moms and Dads Everywhere

By

Parenting is super hard, and moms and dads everywhere deserve a break. There are teeny tiny things you can do in your everyday life to make things easier. Anything is worth it if it results in less bending down, fewer trips to the kitchen for paper towels, and fewer messes to begin with, right? 

We'll kick this off with a genius dad who'd just worked a long shift and came up with the best idea to entertain his kids while he fell fast asleep.

It's like a Renaissance tableau. Monica Weber recently posted this picture of her husband and kids on Facebook, where it went totally viral. "He has them doing 'realism art' while he 'poses' AKA naps. The winner gets a chocolate, but let's be honest, [he] is the one winning lmao." 

Seriously, this dad has nailed it. And he really does look like he's posing for a painting while asleep. As long as he doesn't snore or twitch in his sleep, his kids will never be the wiser. Of course, Monica got some backlash for this picture, but she clarified that her husband had just come off a 12-hour shift as an OR nurse, and he was there and easy to wake up if there had been a problem. This is the case of a dad finding a creative solution to keeping his kids engaged while he gets some shuteye, and I am here for it.
