Morning funnies: When your kid refuses to let you lie



Read this hilarious piece by pop music writer Sean Daly on how his 6 year old refused to let him lie about his kid's age to get on a ride at the mom_jeter1.jpgzoo. As he notes, "It was a bittersweet feeling being sold down the river by my morally superior 6-year-old daughter."

It's kind of like Yankees star Derek Jeter saying he got hit with the ball at Wednesday's game when clearly he wasn't. What example do we want to set for our kids? Or do we need to tell little lies sometimes?

We always say we love it that kids are so honest, but do we? Fess up. When is it okay to lie and say your kid is really under 3 and should get in free or he's really over 4 and should be able to go on this fun theme park ride?
