I have been dealing with little white lies since my oldest could understand: "after I'm done, we'll go to the park" or when I want to watch my show, I'll tell my kids there are no cartoons on right now. I don't see any harm to it; my kids are 8 and 5 and pretty normal. But now, I see myself having him say the little white lies for me. I feel utterly guilty, because, of course, I don't want to teach him that. I can't help it!! For instance, if I get a chance to nap and all of a sudden my husbands sister decides to call, I would tell him to tell her I'm in the shower and I'll call her later. Or if my twins' teacher asks me to volunteer I'd tell them to tell her, I have a doctors appointment. I hate that it happens but sometimes I just want to be left alone, even if it mean my children have to lie for me! Another issue i have is, he never questions that I am doing something wrong. Could it be that he now thinks its normal? I have certainly made a vow to myself that I will stop putting him in the middle, however, I have a feeling it will happen again! Maybe I just shouldn't over due it!

This is a website I came across for detoxing your body. Now I haven't tried any of the recipes, because I am scared, but I would sooo good for our bodies. I'm going to buy all kinds of different ingredients and take it one step at a time. I think we should all try to eat healthy and take care ourselves, but gosh darn it, its hard!!! Well if anyone tries anything before PLEASE let me know how it went; I can use all the support I can get. Maybe i'll get my kids to this first ;)
