Kids are sweet when they lie

I asked my 12-year-old nephew if he will still let me kiss him and pinch his cheeks when he’s 30. He gave me a WTF look, but he nodded his head and said yes. What man, at the prime of life would want an old crazy chick pinching his cheeks in front of a “chickadee”? But he couldn’t hurt my feelings. Kids are so sweet when they lie …

In trying to get my niece and nephew to eat more vegetables, I gave them a tall glass of spinach and parsley smoothie. When I asked them if it was good, they both chimed in and said “it’s really good Auntie Lafemme” even though they both looked like they were about to HURL. But they drank it all up anyway :) Kids are so sweet when they lie …

I asked my niece if she’d prefer to sleep in on Saturday or go to the farmer’s market with me at 8am. I got another WTF look, but told her that it would be a good “bonding” experience for us since I don’t get to see her too often. She sighed and said, “I sleep too much anyway.” Kids are so sweet when they lie …

The kids caught me shaking my tush to Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.” I heard a few chuckles and gasps … I guess my dance moves weren’t up to par with the young folks, but I kept going until the song ended. Then I took a deep breath and asked them if they thought their Auntie Lafemme was a good dancer. After a long pause, the oldest niece (16) looked me in the eye and said “You are for someone your age.” Then I asked her if she would like for me to teach her some of my crazy dance moves. She said, “I don’t think my mom will let me shake my butt like that.” Kids are so sweet when they lie …

Then I asked the younger ones if they thought their Auntie Lafemme is crazy, the littlest one (5 years old) said “I think you’re a crazy chick.” Kids are so sweet when they lie … BUT THEY ARE FREAKIN’ AWESOME WHEN THEY’RE TELLING THE TRUTH!

    Out of the mouth of babes…..

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Absolutely! :)

  3. Your nephew isn’t old enough to know that by age 16 he won’t even allow you to touch him in public, much less when his friends are around.

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Ha! That’s what you think he loves me so much that he’ll be willing to “humiliate” himself in public for me. Besides if he can “lie” to me now, he can lie to his friends and say that I’m just an “old crazy chick” who think he’s the cat’s pajamas … he LOVES me that much!!!!!!! I still love you though Squammie Always love your comments

    HAHAAHAAAA! That was funny…my dance moves are in need of being updating so I guess we’re in the same boat. At least you’re nieces and nephew know what “tact” is Lol

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Yes we are, but just because our dance moves aren’t the fashion doesn’t they they don’t ROCK!!!!!! The kids lie to me ’cause they love me … so ironic that lying = loving.

  5. So cute! The other day I was driving my 3-year old grandson to pre-school. He looked at me and said, “Nanny, you’re old.” LOL. Out of the mouths of babes ….

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Oh Nancy kids are soooo cute with their forthrightness :) I bet your grandson is going to have quite the personality when he grows up! Nothing wrong with being old and I bet he doesn’t think so either :)

  6. Hahahha….you gotta love em…

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      And I dooooo love them soooo much :) !

  7. becca3416 says:

    I wonder what my soon to be godchild will lie to me about :). Cute post.

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Thanks Becca :) Whatever he lies about … I’m sure he’ll do it with love in mind :)

  8. I think kids are more likely to tell the truth than lie–especially the real little ones. They only start to lie when they get bigger and want something from you (or want to avoid getting into trouble)! :)

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      The kids want to spare my feelings and my pouting … ’cause at my age I ain’t past the pouting … My nieces and nephews would probably rather get into trouble than have to endure my pouting when I’m with them :)

  9. Funny read. Unfortunately “sweet when they lie” was not cute for me with my two now adult girl and boy. I changed their names to Suspect #1 and Suspect #2. I’ll allow you to speculate what that means

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Oh Carl you are hilarious! No wonder I love your blog :)

    That was really funny! Reminds me of when my son was around 8th or 9th grade. I was belting out some Foreigner or Def Leopard tunes and he asked me “Mom, why is all your high school music about sex and drugs?” We still laugh about that now and again!

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      Denise … this is for you! :)

  11. Auntie Lafem
    lol

    • Lafemmeroar says:

      That’s “me” name … :)
