Lulu dressed herself this morning. She didn't want to put on a skirt over her tights. I insisted and she resisted. I finally told her that her bottom was so cute, other people would want to pinch it so she should have an extra layer for protection. She thought about it and then agreed with my logic and chose to wear this skirt.
Nobody ever told me I'd start telling such ridiculous lies to get my kid to move faster in the mornings. Nobody also told me, I'd lie about the weirdest things as a parent (e.g. the Owl Man will get you if you don't hurry up and go to sleep or The Force can see everything you do, so do good). Better yet, nobody told me the lies would work so well (they really do)! What ridiculous things do you tell your child to get them out the door faster?!
