Scene: Backyard BBQ on a lovely warm Spring Saturday. People are standing around chatting with snacks and drinks. There is a large bowl of bright orange puffed corn “cheese” snack on the table. Ima is indulging in this bad snack.
Curly, eyeing the bowl curiously: “Ima, what’s that?”
Ima, thinking fast: “They’re worms.”
Ima, crunching and licking the orange powder from her fingers: “Yes, crispy fried worms. Do you want one?”
Curly: “NO, eww.”
I’m betting when he figures out they’re not actually worms, he’s going to be pretty mad. But maybe he’ll still never want to eat them.
LOL….that was a great one.
love this! kids are so funny (and so easily duped!). the other day when i was mixing up my latest cake batter, Bird asked what I was making. if i had answered truthfully, she’d have been all over it. so, instead i replied “this is my progesterone-injection-reward.” she said “i no like that” and scampered off. teehee 🙂
Wait until he brings you a worm and asks you to make it like the ones you were eating!
Haha! How creative 🙂
ha ha ha!
When one of us needs to miss bedtime, we tell Kai that Mommy or Mama has a “meeting”.
I LOVE this–perhaps because I too have lied about how disgusting forbidden food items are.
I love it! I once met a mom who hadn’t had french fries in 2 years because she didn’t want her kids to kind out what they were. I like your idea much better.
awesome! it’s amazing he didn’t want to try some worms 🙂
Oh the sweet lies we tell. I dont’ think they will ever remember. 😉 Can I have your password?
I just realized I don’t have your password. Will you please share it with me? Thanks in advance.
Love that story 🙂 Could I pretty please have the password too – I thought I already did but I can’t seem to find it – thanks 🙂
