White Lies & Parenting (The Middle)

“Have your kids ever caught you in a lie? See how Frankie, the loving wife and mother of three from ABC’s The Middle handles her white lies when her youngest son becomes the wiser. Available for pre-order! http://bit.ly/qliHr2″

My kids haven’t caught me in a lie (yet) but I know they will, and I dread the day.  For instance- for good or bad, don’t judge- I borrowed this from a friend of mine- we kind of told the kids that when the ice cream trucks play music, it means they don’t have any more ice cream left for the day.  In our defense, we do let them have ice cream- but for the four times a year that the ice cream truck goes near our house- its very dangerous- we live on a busy road right smack in the middle of a long, straight section.  So running to the ice cream truck scares us.  We are fully aware that we will be found out, and don’t make a habit of lying to our kids, so I know we’ll face the proverbial music sooner or later.  In the meantime, we’ll get in the car and head out for ice cream when that music plays on the truck…

  • LOL! I like that white lie... I do the same to my kids sometimes. If we're in Toys R Us and they want something I tell them that it's a display and not for sale yet until next week. They usually believe me but sometimes they question me. My mom used to tell me white lies and I don't think there's anything wrong with it. :) Newest follower to your blog! If you can visit mine and follow me too that would be awesome! Thanks much! Krissy @ Mommy Miscellaneous
