The Biggest Lie On The Planet

I know you think you've heard this one. The biggest lie is, "The check is in the mail," right? Well, there's another one, but since this is sort of a family blog, I'm not going to say the other one.

I submit though, that neither of those are true.

In my house, the biggest lie ever is:

"Don't worry Mom...I'll clean it up, I promise!"

I'm glad I'm not in the habit of holding my breath while I wait for things to happen.

What's the biggest lie in your house?

"I promise I'll give the shirt/jacket/purse/wrap/dress/etc. back as soon as I'm done."

Us: Homework done?
Them: Yes!

"I will!" and "I did." those are tied for first place as the biggest lies in my little world.

And they keep popping up too. Like weeds with deep roots and lots of sunshine.

"I don't know who broke it/who ate it/who left it there/etc"

And a favorite since they learned to talk- "Not me!"

Replace mom with Megan and you have that lie down for my hubby. Ugh!
