Having kids is a built in font of pre-made believable excuses. That isn't to say that you shouldn't be honest in your daily doings, but it does mean that sometimes saying, "Sorry, Johnny isn't feeling great" is easier than saying, "Your sofa makes me itchy and your cat always jumps on my head and I don't really feel like wearing heels tonight."
How about you? Have you used your kids to help extend a little white lie? Do you use them to help get you out of parties, invites or social obligations because you'd need to get a sitter, you're tired or watching Grey's Anatomy in your pajamas is more appealing?
