8 Lies My Kids Told Me Recently
5. My teacher said it didn’t have to be exactly twenty minutes of reading.
You mean, right here on the directions where it says, in bold, “at least twenty minutes”? That’s a lie? How strange that a grown up would lie to children like that.Â You should talk to her.
6. I don’t like cheese.
I’m sorry,have we met? I’m your mother. The woman who has seen you order a cheeseburger and eat only the cheese. I don’t know if there’s a vegetable in there or maybe a flake of parsley, but I am going to get to the bottom of this lie.
7. You made a rule that we could have three popsicles a day.

8. I am looking for a birthday gift for my friend.
