Turkey Day Game

They play football on Thanksgiving so I think it’s ok if I play a little game of my own.

I put together a little Thanksgiving Mini Book and AFTER I finished it the thought struck me that my wonderful children might not think my book is as adorable as I do, who would have thunk it?  I pondered for a minute, I thought what is mother to do?  Then I remembered what I’ve been doing since the beginning….BRIBERY.  It worked for potty training, cleaning rooms, and curfew so surely it’ll work for this silly little book.

In each envelope is a prompt, one says Blessings, one says Remember This, one says Grateful etc.  They are similar to the one I love the most which I put in the book already.

Now you are probably wondering what am I going to bribe them with, well I thought about making them play before dinner…no game….no food.  Just kidding.  By bribe will be scratch off lottery tickets, $1 a kid. 

These two cute girls will probably do it just to take their momma happy.

This boy will have to be bribed, guilted, and maybe even threatened.  Since I try to keep my blog G Rated I won’t share his thoughts, but I will let you know if he can be bought for a $1.

    Bribery is a form of mothering. We all do it and should not feel one bit bad while we are doing it. If not for bribery, grades would be in the toilet, clothes would be on the lawn, the dog would starve, etc. ….. You Go MOM!!
