Amy: LIES we tell our kids

I will collect the lies we tell our kids, for their own good or otherwise.
Let's get philosophical.

Day 18:

big wait for a little race

Misleading, perhaps, rather than a total and complete, bare-faced lie.

We live a kilometer or so from the tour de france route, so today we wandered down to watch the cyclists go by, on their way to the champs elysee.

There's something of a cavalcade. Every time another group of motorbikes came around the corner we were both saying, "Here they come!" Anything to keep the kids from giving up on waiting, from fighting over the one water bottle, from running or rolling down the hill, and onto the road.
