So please, join me, you deserve a five-minute break (maybe even 10).
This week’s Momup! Topic is: Little lies Moms tell their Children (for a good reason of course)
Watch the clip and comment below.
The little lies we tell our children, often times for their safety, or our own sanity? I know I am guilty of telling a little lie or two to my kiddos.
One that comes to mind is the good old we need an appointment lie. Whenever the children say they would like to go somewhere like Chuck E. Cheese, Build-a-Bear, Sylvania Playland, or any other child friendly and fun location that cost money, that is not in our budget, I tell them that we need to make an appointment. I then explain that we can call and make an appointment for a future date when “they” have a time slot available. It has been doing the trick for the last 3 years. I do worry however, our eldest is a smart cookie and one day one of her friends are going to say that they don’t require an appointment and blow the lid off my entire story. Oh well, I will worry about that when the time comes. Till then I am making appointments.
What little lie have you told your child or perhaps your child overheard you tell someone?
