I feel like a mean mummy but last night DH and I were enjoying some ice cream and DS1 comes out of his room to say he wants a mummy cuddle.. We tried to sneakily hide the ice cream from sight (boys aren't allowed ice cream or sugar, only on very rare occasions) and he says "I smell something yummy! What is that?" And I said its chocolate flavoured coffee haha! He fell for it but he still wanted to try it and I said he isn't allowed to eat anything after brushing teeth. Anyway. He went back to sleep without a fuss but I feel bad for lying to him.
What white lies do you tell your kids?
