Usually when someone asks me how old my baby is, I simply say, "she's a little over 6 months". I have been saying that since she was about 9 months and I will continue to say this for as long as I can get away with it.
I feel a little bad about lying, but if I don't tell people this, the conversation will continue with more questions and comments about why she is so little, and if I am feeding her enough. If I realize how small she is. This can go on for quite a few minutes.
And so I tell this little white lie. Tell me I am not alone? Tell me there are others out there who tell their own little white lies?
