I Confess: I’ve lied to my kids about when their birthdays are.

A confession from Hello Bello's Mom (aka Kristen Bell)

When kids are really young they have little to no concept of time and, yes, I’ve taken advantage of that and lied to them about bedtime – and even about their birthdays. Like, if it’s a Wednesday, and we can’t celebrate and we’re both working late, then guess what? Your birthday is on Saturday. They don’t know! And it’s just a little white lie, right?
