You know you’re a single mother on Boxing Day when

You let your kids watch cute cats doing stupid stuff on the internet all day
You open a beer at 9.30am
You can’t see the living room floor and the presents were opened nearly 2 days ago
You think left over, dried out potato salad is all kids need to eat all day
The sun is shining but the couch and TV have reserved a place for your fat bum
The brandy custard in the fridge has your name and ‘do not touch or I will send you to boarding school’ written on the label
Your drunk redneck neighbours call your name and you think climbing over their fence for a drink at 10pm is a wise decision
Your youngest child complains about a stomach ache and you pour her a shandy
You steal your children’s Christmas presents so you can regift to the neighbours’ kids because you forgot to buy them anything
Your children are still eating Christmas candy canes at 8.30pm
You let your kids play with sparklers unsupervised in the street so you can watch endless hours of cats doing mindless funny stuff on the net

    Thanks for the clip! I needed it. While my kids are XL and I am now dealing with their hangovers, I promise it’s the ten year’s on equivalent to mindless cat videos – how about funniest Vine??

    Just cleaned the bathrooms..

      AGH!! Mine are currently obsessed with teens who have their own YouTube channels. I swear if I see one more inane YouTube clip about nothing by someone who has more followers than Jesus I will scream.

      Saintly mother, cleaning bathrooms!
