Lies My Mother Told Me

My mother was a quick thinking woman who came up with some good lies on the spur of the moment. These are my two favorites:

Mouse Mattresses. When I was little I found a maxi pad. I asked my mother what it was and she told me it was a mouse mattress. That at night mice would have a nice place to sleep if they wandered into her closet. We still call them mouse mattresses to this day.

I was bought from the grocery store with Green Stamps. When I asked her where babies came from she told me I was bought from the supermarket with green stamps. When I found a book of new ones in her draw when I was around five I went into a tail spin thinking we were getting a new baby in the house. She calls me Suzie Green Stamps now for my middle name.

I hope to be as creative and quick in the lies I tell my children. I have some big shoes to fill for sure.

I don't think I will have any Internet access this week but I will be posting daily (thank you post scheduler). I'll be sure to respond to all comments when I return next Monday.

That's hilarious! Your mom is pretty sharp. If only I could come up with one for tampons...
