Sometimes, moms and dads out there just need to tell some little white lies to their kids to make things run a little more smoothly. Know what I mean?

When I was picky about food, my mom used to say, “You loved it last time you ate it!” That seemed to do the trick. If you’re a parent, you know exactly what I’m talkin’ ’bout.

And these tweets sure do nail it. Let’s take a look at some parents who admitted the funny lies they tell their kids.

1. Father of the Year.

2. This is a fun lie. 

3. You would hate these.

4. You are a LIAR!

5. Did what you had to do.

6. Sorry, we’re all out!

7. Smooth move.

8. Locked up for the season.

9. Adults only.

10. You should teach a class.

11. You’ll become a princess.

12. Here you go!

13. No toys, sorry.

14. Keep his spirits up.

15. I love raisins!

Those are a barrel of laughs, aren’t they?

It’s time to ‘fess up: do you lie to your kids sometimes?

Tell us about it in the comments! And be honest!
