We’ve talked before I’m sure about bribing Hayden to do things like go potty, get his hair washed, change his diaper etc. Bribing kids tends to be pretty successful and part of modern parenting these days.
Well I guess Hayden has caught on to this. He was eating his breakfast (his third or fourth breakfast of the day! this boy is a food monster!) and I had my laptop up at the table. I had already asked him if I could have a grape or anything out of his fruit bowl and he can given me a clear “No” and a then shown a protective motion to cover his food. However whenever I’m on my laptop he knows there is a chance he can watch Ambulances (firetrucks, police cars, sail boats, etc) on YouTube. So he was asking if he could have an Ambulance. Now I asked him if I could have a grape, he instantly gave me one, but it didn’t stop there, he must have given me 4 or 5 and then asked if he could have an ambulance now? I like the way the boys brain is working!!
There was a limit to the price he wanted to pay though. He gave me only grapes, no raspberries, and after he’d given me the grapes he gave me a look and said “I want to eat the rest daddy!”
Just this morning he took this to a new level. After he woke we were playing around and I was pretending to be this basketball learning game he has by imitating it’s sounds. “Daddy you’re funny” he told me. Couple of seconds later after he buttered me up he was asking me if he could watch Cars for about the 100th time. I think I was duped!
