Mum puts kids to bed in next day's clothes, says it "works wonders"

"It works wonders for me and where I’m at in life at the moment.”

We are all for mom hacks that make life easier.

And if you've got kids, this one is sure to make your life a whole lot smoother and will save you so much time in the morning. So much so that I think you could wake up a whole 10 minutes later than usual.

Imagine!

One mom in Australia gets her kids dressed for the next day before she puts them to bed so they don't have to get dressed in the morning. Genius.

This was always a plan of mine as a kid but when I woke up, my mum would make me change into new clothes anyway.

Lisa Lamond, star of Australian renovation show House Rules, shared her revolutionary parenting tips recently in an interview with Whimn.

“My daughters like to dress themselves from head to toe," she said. "On days I’m working in particular, I don’t have a spare hour while they pull up one sock.

"So 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."

"When they wake up, I get them dressed, change their nappy, put their shoes on and we are out the door. It works wonders for me and where I’m at in life at the moment.”

We could all benefit from a bit more time in the morning, although in lockdown most of us are already kind of wearing the same outfit to bed that I wear the next day. My life is tracksuits and they are also doubling up as PJs.

Lisa also talked about anxiety with routine, explaining: "One of my daughters was quite attached and struggling going to kindy, with the fear of the unknown, so we’ve established a morning and evening routine.

"It’s printed out with words and pictures of things like brushing hair, packing a bag, eating breakfast, and then at night, eating dinner, having a bath, story time – and it’s been awesome. Kids are so big on routine it helps them preempt stuff when they feel anxious.”
