Pmsl At exploded sprite guts
Ummm im pretty sure ive lied about stuff (santa) etc
But with both of the boys on the spectrum they believe something and then its very very hard to get them to change their minds about it. So a lie could end up disastrous in this house depending on what it is.
They need to be set straight. So they just get told no and i deal with the horror that follows. In the hopes that one day when they are big they wont raise an eyelid when something doesn't go their way.
There was this time tho we told ds#1 that dh was in a movie (because he looks very very similar to a character from a movie) andddd he believed it and Then we felt slack so told him the truth but he didn't believe it lol so kept on thinking dh was a moviestar and then started quizzing us about where the money is (from the movie) hahah. Now he is older he sometimes forgets it was a lie and brings it up and gets really cut when we remind him we lied.
Moral of the story? Lies are bad mmmkay
