What you are about to read will hopefully amuse you. If you don't have kids, not so much.
I just wanted to share that Emma went poop on her potty for the first time today. After refusing many many times, I finally managed to get her to try with a lot of sweet talking that may or may not have included upping the M&M mini allotment for a numero dos. I may have done a rousing cheer or two. And stickers... lots and lots of stickers.
Yes, I bribe my kids. Shocking but true. I basically consider bribing my child to poop as a hostage negotiation.
"Send out one of the hostages as a test of good faith, and we'll see about sending in that chocolate you have on your list of demands! If you let all of the hostages go unharmed to the designated area, we'll thrown in a trip to Dairy Queen in an unmarked vehicle!"
I'm all for negotiating, but it's better to have it end on my terms, right?
It's all good in the 'hood. Plus I get an ice cream out of the deal, too. ;)
