Real Moms Confess to Their ‘Little White Lies’.

Mom life isn’t easy. As parents and role models, we teach our kids the values of honesty and being truthful but sometimes, we do resort to little white lies to prevent an epic meltdown or simply to save us from answering the question ‘why’ for the hundredth time. This Mother’s Day, we celebrate moms by talking to real moms who confess to their ‘little white lies’.

Disclaimer: We are not promoting lying to kids, or to anyone. This post is intended for pure humor.

“I tell my 11-year-old son if he is on time for school this week he can stay home all of next week.”
—Misty, Mother of 4

“I tell my 6-year-old daughter that when the ice cream truck plays music, it means they are out of ice cream.”
—Tiffany, Mother of 1

“I told my 2-year-old that Halloween was about collecting candy for mommy and daddy.”
—Nikki, Mom of 1

“All the animals are sleeping right now so we can’t go to the zoo in winter. We unplug the TV or let the batteries run down on the tablet and tell him it’s broken.”
—Melissa, Mom of 1

“If you play with your Willy it will fall off.”
—Christine, Mom of 1

When my son was three or four years old, whenever he asked for candy or cookies, I would tell him I’d check the package and see if he could have it. And then I would say, “Oh no, it says you have to be 12 years old.” Or if it was something he was allowed but within a limit, I would say, “Oh okay, it says you have to eat three veggies and brush your teeth right after.”
—Katherine, Mom of 1

“My son thinks that Toys R Us is just a toy testing place. You can’t buy or bring home toys. You can only look.”
Zoe, Mom of 2

“All my kids grew up thinking that a red dot appeared on their foreheads that only mom and dad could see if they lied. I also told my middle son that Nutella was poo sauce.”
Kara, Mom of 3

Daddy takes the TV remote batteries to work. Sorry, we can’t watch it during the day!”
Shelley, Mom of 1

“If you lie, your nose will grow and you’ll have a huge old man nose by the time you start kindergarten. My 4-year-old then tells the truth while touching her nose.”
Elizabeth, Mom of 2

“Jesus can see you in the washroom and tells me if you washed your hands.”
Elisa, Mom of twins

“The Youtube app doesn’t work on the iPad.”
Adriana, Mom of 1

“If you kiss on the lips you’ll get a cold sore.”
Enea, Mom of 2

“In summer, while playing with water, I tell them the water ran out and now we have to wait for it to fill up again. I also shut off the Wi-FI and say that someone else is using it, we all have to take turns.”
Linda, Mom of 2

“If you pick your nose or eat boogers, it will make you smaller.”
Elise, Mom of 2

“It is dangerous to go into Mommy’s room.”
