Lying to your kids...
...isn't such a bad thing when all else fails. I remember one time I was in Colombia and Vivian's 4 year old cousin had a major embarrassingly HUGE meltdown in Blockbuster because she wanted to see a movie that the rest of the family didn't want to see. After her father unsuccessfully tried to calm her down truthfully in the store, her mother walked over, grabbed the empty case along with her daughter and asked the cashier if they could rent the movie that her daughter wanted to see. What she didn't see was that her mom winked with her unseen eye at the cashier who followed along and said I am sorry but that movie is not in the case because it's already rented. And within 2 seconds she stopped crying. Lying solved everything... and little did she know that Blockbuster had several stock in the back just waiting for little girls to rent. That was my first lesson in when and how to lie successfully to your kids.
so I took that experience and and here is what I came up with...
Because hurricane Irene spoiled our plans for Jaxon's 2nd birthday party in the park, and the family and I were stuck in doors all day and night, I decided to set a lie in motion that makes Vivian and me look like we are the best parents a 2 year old could ever have.
