I feel like I’m an honest person. Or, at least, I was until I had a child. Now we can’t play with the skateboard “because it’s resting,” the playground was closed today for some strange reason and we are SERIOUSLY all out of cookies.
This is just the tip of my iceberg of my lies from today.
I’m starting to wonder, what will I do when he begins to question me? Will I break? Will I become an evil mastermind of small child manipulation? I’m optimistically leaning toward evil mastermind. All bets are off when he starts to read though. I rely heavily on his inability to read the texts when I show him so-and-so’s mommy messaged back and his friend is getting ready for bed like a good little boy. No really, that’s what it says.
I’m only looking out for his best interests. He was getting crazy with the skateboard, it was 100 degrees out today and the kid does NOT need any more sweets. It’s a bit of a crutch to get creative with the truth instead of face a full-on meltdown tantrum of massive proportions, but sometimes it’s all you can do to get through the day.
I know I’ll have to face the truth some day. But today, I got away with it… bwahahahahaha (that’s my diabolical evil laugh)
So, fellow Moms (and dads) what little lies have you told your children today? Come on, fess up.
