I had my daughter in the studio with me today. It reminded me of how often I lie. People without kids won't get it, but good parenting requires a lot of lying.

For example, getting a three-year old to eat food can be challenging. In general, they don't like to try new things. We have a rule that she has to take three bites of something new before she's allowed to say "no thank you."

But what's A LOT easier is lying.

She likes chicken, bacon and BBQ, so everything is a form of those three things.

Fish sticks? Turkey? New kind of chicken nuggets.

Pot Roast? New kind of BBQ.

Ham? New kind of bacon.

Now she eats everything.
