One of the top 10 reasons for living in D.C.
(Check out Boo's cherry blossom jeans, too!)
I recently read an article in Newsweek, "Liar, Liar Parents on Fire" that talks about how we lie to our kids (the article was written after the author's 7-year-old asked why it was "embarrassing that former New York governor Eliot Spitzer was involved with a cowgirl ring"). Basically according to the pros it is okay to lie to our children (Santa, Easter Bunny, etc) and to teach them to lie to spare someone's feelings. It is a "developmental milestone" because they have empathy. Well, here is our little white lie about this statue of Einstein--he is the Little Einstein's great-grandfather. Hopefully our children won't be in therapy in 20 years after that one.
