If you're a parent, I'm guessing you've told yourself the following 23 lies at least once — maybe just this week.

  1. It's just a phase.
  2. I'm not tired.
  3. Kids don't need to bathe every day.
  4. Or every other day.
  5. Come to think of it, I don't need to shower either.
  6. I'm not going to eat the leftover macaroni and cheese straight from the pot.
  7. I'm not going to eat all of the leftover macaroni and cheese straight from the pot.

  3. Calcium builds strong bones, so cheese as 90 percent of my kid's diet is totally fine.
  4. No one will remember that I wore this outfit to school drop-off yesterday.
  5. I'm just going to close my eyes for a minute.
  6. I don't need to go to the gym if I'm chasing kids around all day.
