I know there are a lot of honest people in the world, but even the best of us have to bend the truth just a little bit sometimes!

Earlier this week, Brain told a story on the air about a small lie he told his kids recently. He left the house to meet his wife and some friends at a local restaurant, but when they asked where he was going, he decided not to reveal the truth. He knew that they would want to come with him, so instead of having to deal with all of their questions, he chose to take the easy route and make something up. It's a route that most parents have taken from time to time!

Brain's little lie inspired us to ask other parents about theirs. We took to Facebook this week and requested that parents share with us some of the funny lies they've told their children over the years. Sometimes the lies serve a purpose, and other times? Well, I think it's just fun to trick your kids for no other reason than to see how long you can keep it up! You'll find no judgement here!

Here are some of the hilarious stories that parents (or the kids of lying parents!) shared with us on social media:
