I'm just gonna come right out and say it. Moms lie! We do -- and frankly a fib can be the difference between a good night's sleep and being sent to padded room. You see, mothers are a brilliantly dishonest bunch. And deception is one of the strongest tools in our arsenal (PS: it only works until your children figure out how to look things up on Google).
Damn you interwebs from ruining the only sanity saver I have left!
Of course we fabricate things in different ways. There are the universal lies, which I laid out in my lists of "Momisms", and there are the bold faced lies that are incredibly creative and will most definitely get us in trouble down the road. Though we're willing to take that risk for a little reprieve in the moment!
Here are some bold faced lies I've told my kids to save sanity, furniture, face, time, and money. Plus, the top lies from my Facebook Fans, who are clearly unscrupulous (and I love that about them).
