We’re all telling lies to our kids. Sometimes because we can’t tell the truth, sometimes for fun. I just stumbled upon Lies I’ve told my 3 year old recently.

I had never thought “I’ll always be there for you” was one.

I feel sad, all of a sudden, to be reminded of my own mortality and to think of those twinkling, amazingly wide blue eyes looking at me and asking “Dad, will you always be there? Will you always love me?”
