Mommy lies...

One Saturday afternoon, My daughter was looking at my Facebook wall when she suddenly shrieked "mommy this is mine!..and this, and another one! all mine!..bakit po suot ng mga bata mommy? "

She was referring to the tutus she modeled for my customers. I let her model some of my creations kase para makita yung designs when worn however every time I will ask her to wear a tutu she would first ask me if It's hers and I would tell her yes just to convince her . maling mali pala coz' children believe everything we say. 

"saan po tutu ko mommy?  saken un mommy diba?" 

At first I answered her , "Don't worry nak, Mommy will make another one for you ok? "  I felt guilty seeing her so upset.

Here's some of the tutus she modeled..hehe

Ano ang learning mga mommies?

Do not lie.

I have to remind myself that telling lies is bad, even to a toddler! even over small things. It will confuse them, It can give them mix messages and worst they'd think that lying can be right. 

We all want to teach our kids to be honest and trustworthy. We want to raise honest children so let's be a good example.

Now, when I ask her to fit some dresses I tell her first that those are not hers and they belong to someone else, that mommy sells those clothes. I also tell her that if she wants the same dress I can make one for her. I also make sure that I keep my promises.

I have a very matanong na anak. She's a curious little girl so I try to explain everything in the simplest way I can. We , however, have to tell our child age appropriate information.

Do not try to explain complex information to a toddler. sige try mong i-ispluk ang PORK BARREL sa 3 year old child mo..haha hope magkaintindihan kayo , GO! lolz.

and about white lie? I'll explain it to her when she's a bit older. =)

Here's my FB page pala if you want to check out more designs
