What *lies* (little and white, or otherwise) have you told other parents about your kids or parenting?

Off the top of my head, I can't really think of anything.

I still sleep with my 3.5 year old off an on (start out in my bed them move to hers).


I always get ""OMG, that is way too old."" and other snide remarks. I just walk away. I dont often tell the person the truth. If the person knows me well enough that I care what they think, then they already know the truth.


My daughter has been hooked up to feeding tubes, O2, apnea moniters most of her early life, so I had to sleep with her. She is still up 10 times a night or more now that she is off all that stuff.

I think I have that fat kid tendency to make fun of myself before others can so I kind of use that about my parenting too - when someone boasts about how fabulously talented at dance their kid is I usually say something like - well Liza is gorgeously stunngingly average.

 

Yes. We. Did.
