To Tell the Truth

I was making a little speech about how I feel children should be treated like real people, instead of talked down to.

“I never lie to my kids,” I declared.

My husband, observing this bit of pomposity on my part, coughed dryly into his hand and muttered, “Santa Claus.”

Well, that puts me in my place, doesn’t it?
