That would be ME. One of the parents in my class used this term to describe herself to me, and the term has stuck with me. What's interesting is she is absolutely not a "Slacker Mom", but isn't that so typical of us moms to be so hard on ourselves?
So, she lost her tooth and put it under her pillow. Fast Forward 12 hours-6:20 a.m. Holly comes in my room-very disappointed-because the tooth fairy did not come. UGHH.
I distract her with some nonsense that I can't even recall and run to my wallet-EMPTY (as usual)...so...I go to HER wallet, yes, I said HER wallet. S.L.A.C.K.E.R. I score 5 bucks, run to her room and stick the $5 in her pillowcase (where it could be easily overlooked).
I call her into the bedroom and assure her that she didn't look everywhere, and whatdoyaknow? $5 in the pillowcase. I shared with her that the tooth fairy probably didn't take her tooth because it was so tiny. At which she assured me that the tooth fairy is a tiny, tiny fairy and the tooth is not that tiny to her. oops.
Yes, I will pay back the $5 before she ever realizes it was gone. Yes, I do feel guilty about the whole lie, I mean incident.
Hi, My name is Kris and I'm a "Slacker Mom".
