Sweet Bribery



I asked my son if he'd mind if I took his photo. Look at his response....





"C'mon, it's not like I asked you to scrub the bathroom or walk the dogs or cook dinner." Please smile without rolling your eyes at me".




"There, that's a good smile. Can you give me another so I can snap one or two more pictures? I'll buy you a piece of candy if you do".





"Oh wow, mom, a whole piece of candy?" I upped the ante a bit here... "Okay, I'll take you out and look for chewy apple slices". (His favorite candy).




Just look at the smile that got me!!! Just a few sweets work as bribery for my son. Unfortunately, though, after visiting 4-5 candy shops, not one had those green,chewy, sugary apple rings. We are hard pressed to find those little buggers anymore.

But, I got my smile!

So what you're saying is that my son will never grow out of this? I have to do the same thing with mine. Bribery! :) At least the stakes aren't quite so high with a 5-year old. A couple Skittles and he's happy!
