Little White Lies....

Nine out of ten parents admit to telling little white lies on a daily basis to try and keep naughty kids well behaved....
I will admit I lie to my girls all the time....Which is naughty because at the the same time I tell them not to lie as it's wrong....I think it's a case of do as I say not as I do.....

 It's a wonder Ellie like's fairies...They have been awful to her....The pesky little things took her dummies away and her bottles when we were trying to get her off them....When she was being toilet trained the fairies came back and took her nappies away.....Now the tooth fairy comes and takes her teeth away....Now this lie has come and bitten us in the bum....If Ellie does something naughty like drawing on the walls, pinching yoghurts out of the fridge at 3am she blames the fairies....

No matter how hard we try some little white lies just seem to roll of the tongue as though they were gospel...Most we have also heard from our own parents....

Here's a few of the best....
  • Eating carrots makes you see in the dark....hahaha Used it on Sunday!! Becky questioned how come I can't see in the dark...I eat my carrots....We had a quick change of subject!
  • If you sit too close to the television it will make your eyes go square.....Used to use it, my 2 have learnt now not to sit so close to th tv!

  • Spit out the seeds or a tree will grow in your stomach....Yes!! I won't eat any seeds...Just incase! Thanks dad!
  • If you swallow gum, it’ll stay in your stomach for seven years....I actually said that to Stu the other day believing it was true!
  • If you eat your crusts your hair will go curly....That explains my hair then!! I'm a softie I cut the crusts off for my girls....
  • You had better be careful; if you pick your nose you might put a hole in your brain.....Ohhh yes! I say it to Ellie on a daily basis! She's a chronic nose picker!
  • If you tell me the truth you won't get into trouble....Becky is wise to this one....She knows if she's done wrong and tells the truth she's in trouble, if she lie's she's in trouble...A no win situation!
  • For as long as these soft serve ice cream vans have been driving around our neighbourhoods parents have come up with the same lie, that is 'the van only plays music to let you know it has run out of ice cream....My dad used to say it to me and I say it to my girls...lol Nasty mammy!
  • If you pull a face like that again, the wind might change and you'll stay like that forever.....I say it and I get worse faces then what they were actually pulling!!
  • You'll be washed down the plughole if they stay in the bath too long....I use this lie sort of....I tell the girls I'm pulling the plug out and if they don't get out they'll be washed down the plug hole....
  • Mummy and daddy are taking a nap....Errr yes!
  • And the biggie....Santa!! There's a whole heap of lies about Christmas....He won’t come unless you’re asleep before midnight on Christmas Eve...If you’re naughty, you’ll get a lump of coal for Christmas...remember he only brings presents for good children...Yes, yes, yes & yes! Also when the girls are being naughty I'll say he's watching and if he's really naughty I'll sneakily get my mobile phone and ring the house phone answer it and pretend Santa is on the phone....hahaha

  1. It's our parents' faults for telling these things to us! There is nothing wrong with a harmless white lie for a peaceful life! ;)
