Have you told your toddler things that you know aren't true? They can be anything from 'The tooth fairy will come if you're a good girl,' to 'watching too much tv will make your eyes square,' - we've all done it but I'd love to hear what you've said and why.
Send me a message with your full name, age, roughly where you're from, your child's age and first name and I'll definitely get back to you! Thanks!
While we were on holiday to Singapore this June, my 4 year old son got bitten by mosquitos and I told him it's because he's eaten too many sweets and chocolates and his blood is so sweet that the mosquitos like the sugar and can smell it on him. It worked!

Not my kids, but someone at work - when his son was small, he asked what the motion sensor in the corner of the hall was. So his dad being thoroughly evil (!) told him it was Santa cam, and it was how Santa knew if he was naughty during the year.
Several months later, he heard his son talking away on the stairs and knew there was no-one there so he sneaked out to see if he could hear - his son was earnestly explaining to the motion sensor just why he hadn't been naughty when he stole the biscuits from the kitchen in the hopes that Santa would take pity on him!
My little girl is too young to be told stories but my nieces mum tell her that the bell on the ice cream van is telling people that they have run out.
I tell the kids in my class that the motion sensor is a camera linked to the heads office so that he can see what they are doing!!!!!
Like caroline our cousin tells her kids the noise on the icecream van is that its run out to,i think its funny.
When i was a kid i remember my mum telling the fly's were in the house to watch us and would eat us if naughty. It made her feel rather gulity and she came back to explain that it would not happen.
I havent told any lies to Hollie yet as she is too young, but im sure there will be a few told in the future.
My nephew told me once how babies were born when i was pregnant with Hollie. He said that there is a ladder in my tummy that the babyu climbs up and then it pops out of your mouth. He then went on to tell me the baby flies across the room and you have to go and pick it up and clean it and say shhhh baby its ok, dont cry. I was in absolute stitches when he told me that, he also thinks the baby comes out covered in green slime and that is why you have to clean it.
