First off, thank you for all the sweet comments yesterday! You guys can make a pregnant lady feel pretty good.
So, I'm sure I'm breaking all kinds of rules in parenting with what I'm about to share today, but I don't really care!
It all started innocently enough. Sweet P's hair started getting longer and is at that awkward girl mullet stage. I just don't know what to do with it so we tried pigtails a while back. I have never put a little girl's hair in pigtails and I just wasn't very gentle. After some tears, I finally managed to get some hair in those little bands. I felt bad for Sweet P so I gave her two M&Ms.
Side note, we have a jar of M&Ms in the bathroom as an incentive for her to use the potty. A friend told us it helped his girls want to potty train.
Well, we aren't using the M&Ms for potty training yet but we are going through that jar in a hurry. See, we have this deal now, one M&M per "bow" as she calls it. Yes, I understand it's bribery. And yes, I am fully aware you're not supposed to bribe your children.
But, she looks so darn cute with those little pigtails and really, what's the harm in two stinkin' M&Ms?
So now most mornings she wakes up, asks for milk and then requests bows and nem-nems - and I happily grant her these.
