Always tell the truth.
A very important life lesson that I want my children to grow up, standing by.
So why is that when we become parents, that motto that we teach our children, seems a teeny bit hypocritical, well, for me anyway?!
But purely only for my child’s own good or indeed, perhaps, for my own sanity!
MY TEENY TINY MUMMY SECRETS
1. I secretly eat chocolate behind the cupboard door and then give you a banana.
2. When I count to 5, I don’t really know what I’m going to do if you make me get there.
3. We lie to your face to make you eat things. You won’t instantly run faster, if you eat your chicken; yes I’ve hidden veg in the Bolognaise and no, water hasn’t got magic superman powers the minute you drink it.
4. Sometimes I skip through your bedtime story to get to the end quicker, if we have had it for the 1000th time.
5. It’s not blackcurrant in my glass.
6. If it’s been a long day, yes it really is 7pm already and most definitely not only 6.15pm.
7. When the ice cream van plays music, it’s not because it’s sold out of ice cream.
8. If you’re eating Beans on Toast it’s because I can’t be bothered to cook.
9. The local soft play isn’t really shut.
10. The nurse is not really putting brave soldiers in your arm to keep you strong, when you have your jabs.
11. I haven’t really got eyes in the back of my head and I can’t really see everything.
12. When I say ‘be good at preschool through the week and you’ll get 2 days off’, you will get those 2 days, anyway. It’s called the weekend.
I know that when you are old enough to read and tell the time, my little white lies will be void but until then, please excuse Mummy’s little fibs. They are all for your own good, or mine!!
Do you have any little fibs that you tell your children??
