When it comes to celebrity moms, Kristen Bell is definitely one of our favorites. The star of The Good Place is always full of genius parenting tricks and tips, but she also keeps it real about the struggles of child-rearing. And recently, Bell confessed she’s totally lied to her children about their birthdays.

On the September 26th episode of Today, Bell got candid about parenthood. When hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb asked her if she’d ever lied to her daughters, 5-year-old Lincoln and 3-year-old Delta, Bell said “of course,” initially admitting she sometimes lies to them about what time it is because they “can’t tell time.”

And when it comes to letting her girls wear dirty clothes, Bell had one response: “Duh.”

Watch the full clip here (in which Bell confesses several other hilarious parenting stories):

Listen, Kristen—we get it. Parenting is hard, and there’s nothing wrong with a harmless white lie every now and then.

Please never stop being you.
