Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!
If you haven't done so already, check out Kristen's post about parenting styles.
"All you ever needed to know about parenting was heckling you from behind or passing you a really stupid note. Yes. I swear. Third grade."
She's right, but I wanted to add an extra category to include moms like me.
The Liar: This parenting style is similar to the bratty eight-year-old who made up stories about things they've done. Kid version: "I didn't go to bed until midnight last night. My mom lets me stay up as late as I want."
Mom version: "Oh sorry honey we can't watch Baby Einstein for the 435th time. The DVD player is broken. (Not) Sorry sweetie, I lost your favorite bedtime story - you know the one we read every single night, over and over. It's gone. (Not) Oops, all the Play-Doh dried up. (Not)
What's your parenting style???
