HA!

Anyone who knows me well knows that my middle son, Turner, has sleep issues. He just doesn't need much, much to his mama's chagrin. We have tried everything we can think of to encourage his sleeping, and trust me when I say we're not above bribery!

So the following conversation takes place at the lunch table today:

Dh: Ok, guys. We're having cookies for snack when you get up from your naps. Anyone who takes the LONGEST nap, will get three cookies, everyone else will just get two.
T: I'll take two!
Dh: You're not even going to try for the three, Turner?
T: No. I just want two.

*sigh* So much for bribery!

Too funny! My son is very practical also! Once when he was around 10 I took his computer out of his room for misbehavior. He response "that's OK, I have lots of books" What's a Mom to do!
