The Joys of Bribery


To celebrate Father’s Day, we took my Dad & Margie to the lake trailer this weekend. We had tons of fun playing on the water, grilling out & eating loads of s’mores.

First thing this morning Christopher asked for yet another marshmallow. I casually took him outside & quietly said: “You can have ONE marshmallow, but ONLY if you say Happy Father’s Day to Grandpa & Daddy.”

Christopher ran inside, delightfully wishing Happy Father’s Day to everyone (including Emmy). I snuck him a marshmallow & a wink.

My dad saw Chris with the marshmallow in his hand & said “Chris, may I have one of those?”

Joyfully nodding he responded, “Yeah, but you have to say ‘Happy Fathers Day’ to get one.”
