    Lies you told your kids

    This might seem really childish to some people, but I can't be the only one that's told a porky to a child? most of the time, my brothers know I'm lying because whatever I'm saying is deliberately outrageous, and we have a good giggle about it. But every now and then, a real corker slips through their radar and I'm feeling a bit too mischievous to tell them.

    We (I say we, I don't know who actually came up with it. Wasn't me, but I'm not exactly giving it away either) told my youngest brother that the reason the tooth fairy forgot to leave some money under his pillow for two (TWO!) nights in a row was because the earthquake in Japan shook a lot of people's teeth out and she was busy I'm actually shocked Mum's letting this one continue.

    I also managed to convince him that my passionfruit halves (with all the goodness scooped out and eaten) was a geode, and he was rather panicked when Mum threw it away.

    A friend of mine was convinced by her older sisters that if you put some ham in the VCR it would play a short film about pigs.

    I have physically LOL'd. Thanks

    Dunno if they were lies or things i/my friends thought, but from when i was a kid -

    The TV broke because all the dead people piled up in the back and the TV man had to come and clean them out

    The proverbial eat a seed of something and said seed will grow into the tree of said something.

    If you unscrew your belly button, your bum will fall off.

    People who died in films etc on TV were actually criminals who were sentenced to death for their crimes, so they put them in a film and killed them so they didn't have to kill actors.
    I've got plenty of baggage and i don't expect anyone to carry it for me. But you can have a good rummage through it if you'd like.

    I heard that one! Not as a child, fortunately. It's pure evil genius.

    Oh god my parents told me hundreds of stories, my dad still does!!

    The classic: elephants nest in trees. How do we know this? Well why else do they have long trunks, so they can swing about and hang onto branches

    My brothers also told me that tomato seeds were actually spiders eggs. Didnt stop me eating them though!

    Daddy loves you.
    I know why the caged bird sings, Only joy comes from song
    She's so rare and beautiful to others, Why not just set her free
    So she can fly, fly, fly
    Spreadin' her wings and her song
    Let her fly, fly fly
    For the whole world to see

    I've heard that one too, I never believed it though.

    Once when I was little we went to a restaurant with a fountain and there were frogs. I wanted to sit next to it but my mum didn't, and my big brother said the following to me:

    If a frog jumps on your shoulder and kisses you, you'll get sick.

    I believed it.

    I spoilt a suberb bit of parenting the other day.

    If you eat too much pure sugar, e.g. sugar cubes, you'll get worms.

    Bless him, he was 18 and still genuinely believed it, even felt the need to tell the rest of us out of concern for our welfare. Took a lot of persuasion it was rubbish.

    it wont give you worms, but it provides more of an enticing environment for them to stay.
    Kids who eat too much sugar are more likely to keep getting worms, or find them harder to get rid of

    No, this was definitely, eat sugar lumps, get worms.

    Made the rest of us giggle, a lot, when we eventually persuaded him otherwise.
