“Mama, you didn’t have to fib to me”.

Oh dear.

Big parenting fail.

Thomas needed to go to a dentist yesterday who specialises in kiddy pain-free dentistry. He just has a magic touch and he also has privileges at a hospital which our normal dentist does not have.

We went. Thomas survived it.

I lied to him about where we were going.

He found me out.

And as we were sitting on the couch yesterday afternoon, he said the following.

“Mama, you didn’t have to fib to me. I am a big boy now.”

Not nice to be given a bollocking by your 3yo kid.

    I did. Profusely. And made sure he understands that it was wrong and I promised not to do it again.
