lies we tell our children
It’s easy to tell yourself that you’ll never lie to your child. That you’ll answer even the hardest questions with honesty, at the appropriate level. Turns out that it’s not the hard questions that you’re faced with first. Zoe’s hardest question at this point is, “cheese?” No, my first lie to Zoe has been telling her that the rice crispy treat that she got in her Easter basket is really just a pretty colored toy to carry around. Nothing to eat here, not at all.
