  • Oh mama, you're so sweet. Don't feel bad. She will never know the difference and it gave her peace of mind to get some rest. I don't advocate lying but in this situation you did the right thing.

  • Sometimes as mothers we do what we gotta do! I would have done the exact same thing. Much better than her being scared all night.

  • Sadly, I lie about little things like that all the time w them. Never would lie about anything serious or big, but I've lied about the spider a few times...sometimes those little things are just too damn fast!
