My little guy and I went to scope out a new indoor photo location today. Seattle sunshine is just too unreliable. He had to have his picture taken, but he was pretty easily appeased with a lolly today. I used to feel guilty about this method until we recently ran into another dad in the ski lift line, doling out goldfish while we paid up in M&M’s. He smiled and commented, “Show me a parent who doesn’t believe in bribery, and I’ll show you an ineffective parent.” So glad I’m not the only one who feels this way!
