Bribery Will Get You Everywhere :)

Saturday morning.

Do you bribe your kids?

I sure do.

It works.

Giving Maeve this Pez dispenser filled with pure sugar candies bought me at least 10 minutes.

I got 10 minutes to drink coffee and browse the internet, undisturbed.

The consequences of bribing your children is that the candy (in this case) will eventually run out. Then you're stuck with a sugar-high, 2 year old...

and as you can see.... that's just not a whole lot of fun.

Still though, that 10 minutes of uninterpreted coffee-drinking, internet browsing, QUIET time was worth it... Thank you candy dish :)
