  • I convinced my sons that tapioca pudding was made out of fish eggs, even read the ingredients and told them that 'tapioca' was spanish for fish eggs. Told them that if they didn't chew it completely the little fishes would grow in their tummies. They really thought it was funny.
    When my oldest lost one of his teeth last year (he was 7) I wasn't able to do the whole 'tooth fairy' thing that night, so we had my sister call him on the phone and pretend she was the tooth fairy. He was soo excited that the tooth fairy called him.

  • i've got my daughter convinced she has a magic teddy bear that can get hugs from daddy and give hugs to daddy even though daddy is deployed. so she hugs it every night and every morning and its giving her a hug from daddy and holding onto a hug from her to send to daddy.

  • When my oldest son, who is now 24 was about 5, he lost his first tooth. We put it under his pillow, for the tooth fairy, and when I thought he was asleep,I snuck into his room. He wasn't all the way asleep, and woke up and saw me. He didn't say anything till morning,though. He said "mom,the tooth fairy looks just like you." I told him, "well, yeah, of course she would. She makes herself look like Mommy,so if you wake up and see her, you won't be scared." He believed me,and I never had any problems after that.

  • My almost 13 yr old that I signed a contract when he was born to be a "mean" mommy. My friends 11 and 14 yr olds believe this too.

    My SO just said that if a boy plays with his penis too much hair will grow on his palms. And that a girl can only get pregnant from sucking on a man's penis. (Told by parents to children).
