We are all guilty of exaggerating the truth on social media. Because sometimes a story about our kids is even funnier if we add just a bit of color to it.
It seems one mom who tried to get away with an "enhanced" version of something that her grandson said, didn't quite get away with it, though. That's because her son called her out online, and it was pretty much the most awesome thing that's happened all week.
Koran Hackman's mom Sonya posted to Facebook that when talking about Santa and getting gifts, her 3-year-old grandson, Chance, said he believed in God, and through him all things were possible. But as Hackman pointed out on Twitter, along with a screenshot of his mom's post, "My nephew speaks in Power Ranger quotes, he ain't say none of this."
Hackman did give his mom a slight pass about why she may have embellished the truth, telling The Huffington Post about Chance, "He's her first grandchild, so you know how that goes."
The 21-year-old had no idea so many people would appreciate his tweet; but it has been retweeted more than 133,000 times.
It seems plenty of us can relate to what Sonya did. Thank goodness Hackman can't call BS on anything I have posted to social media. Besides, just like his mom, I always have the best of intentions!
