10 Lies We Tell Our Kids Because It s Not Our Fault They Are Dummies  lies 253x200 jpgI’ve admitted before that I lie to my kids. Constantly. This has been met with comments from people like “ZOMG you are a HORRIBLE mom and your are SCARRING your kids for LYFE (Because the people who usually say this kinda stuff also aren’t so great at spelling) and they will grow up and hate you FOREVER.”

Yeah, yeah, whatever, I still lie to my kids, and if they grow up and one day discover that I haven’t been telling them the truth about every single thing on this list and they hate me forever for it… OH WELL.

Listen, I can’t help it that kids are dumb. They just are. They are born that way!

Circle of life, people!

My kids bring home so many graded assignments and drawings and if I saved every single one I would have to rent a storage shed to put them all in. Sure, I save the best ones, but the rest get filed under “G” (For garbage)

This 19 dollar Pamigano-Reggiano cheese is not the cheese you like. The cheese you like is in the back of the refrigerator in the green can.

So many parents have confessed to this little fib. The cell phone? The iPad? The Kindle? All the batteries are dead. They all need to be charged. You cannot play right now.

So many parents have also admitted to this one. From places like Chuck E. Cheese to toy stores to parks that are just too far away. our kids favorite places keep very specific opening hours and sometimes just magically go out of business for no reason.

Of course I miss my kids when they are at school or at a sleepover or playdate, but come on! I am too busy enjoying taking a bath without interruptions or enjoying the peace and quiet to really miss them. It’s not like that three hours they were gone is the same as them running off to join the Peace Corps for a few years.
