7 Evil Things Moms Do to Their Kids

We all love our kids. Well, most of us on most days, anyway. But still, there are sometimes when find ourselves being just a little bit deceptive when it comes to parenting those little darlings. Hey -- it's not like grown-ups get to go trick-or-treating, mmmkay? Besides, that candy was going to go bad anyway. Pretty sure.

Anyway, we've all had our less than stellar parenting moments, but you know what? Sometimes it's those little moments that help keep us sane in the bigger picture known as Surviving Motherhood. So don't beat yourself up too much, slip another $5 into the therapy jar, and lock yourself in the bathroom for a fun-sized chocolate bar. I won't tell if you won't.

What evil have you committed against your kids?

I would do all of those but taking from their piggy bank...I don't take money that's not mine.

Stacey541, sometimes there really isn't a choice.  My mom was given $5 as a child.  The following day my grandfather got a splinter in his eye and they had to use her $5 to get him treated.  

Yes my parents were that poor, and I really am that old.

I have done all thoes things. My son needed lunch money and hubby forgot to leave it when he went to work. I had no other option as I was not going to an ATM for 3 bucks. So my son paid for his own lunch that day.

I wish I would have thought about telling the one about the ice cream truck. Instead, I'm the crazy lady that's running outside, shooing the truck away HAHA

I would call any of these evil. Evil is when you harm your child in some way.

soooo glad Im not alone in this world on these!!!


Okayyyyyy....#7 cracked me up.

These are the necessary "evils" to raise kids. LOL!

P.S. Breaking into piggy bank sometimes is a necessity when it comes to trying to survive when you are broke. I have done it and do not regret a thing...plus, the kids got it back in some sort of way around Christmas, Birthdays and a just because day.
