No really… you’re babysitter is Dion… Dion Warwick!

Ok… so, we have an awesome babysitter named Dion! Obviously, it’s not Dion Warwick, but my kids don’t know that! Yes… I know that it is highly frowned upon to lie to your kids in this day and age, but frankly, I could give a *******! As a parent, it is your right to have moments of laughter at the expense of your kids!

Tonight, when our babysitter, Dion, arrived I whispered to my kids “You know that’s Dion Warwick… the famous singer.” At first my kids had no reaction, but I was getting ready to leave for an evening out with other adults (who I will have you know lie to their kids as well), as I overheard my kids saying “I can’t wait to tell my friends tomorrow that Dion Warwick came over to babysit us!” I couldn’t even contain my laughter as I sneaked out the back door to get into my car.

My Question: Is it wrong to lie to your kids for the simple purpose of humoring yourself (and no one gets hurt in the process)?
