my mother has been saying i am lazy. only because i dont have the time or patience to make my son's dinner plate look like a tree or a rainbow  or to do half this crap pintrest moms do. i feel like its a was of effort to make his plate look hella fance when he a) doesnt eat most of it. b) half of it will end up in his lap. and usually around dinner time i am feeding my 5 month old food or a bottle and if im not focused mostly on the baby ww3 brakes out in the dining room. 

so the question is, does this make me a lazy mom bc i dont make my childs meals/snacks  look like pictures on his plates?

I would just ignore your mom.  Just a petty thing to worry about honestly in regards to children.  She should look at whether or not you're taking care of your children properly, spending quality time with them, what you're feeding them,etc.

To me it doesn't matter how it looks, as long as it is a well balanced and healthy meal.  I would just ignore her.

 Sorry but in my honest opinion...I think your mom is weird.  Its food, not art class.

I've never done that or thought about it.  I guess I am one of those "don't play with your food" kind of moms lol

A five month old shouldn't be eating food and dinner should not look like a picture.

I think she was talking about her older son. She says in her post that this is while she is trying to feed her 5 month old a bottle.

No, I wouldn't say that makes you lazy. Did your mom make your dinner plates fancy?
