lightening mcqueen is IN your mouth.

tonight we told brennan that lightening mcqueen was in his mouth.
i covered my mouth and in a low voice said,
"brennan, this is lightening mcqueen {his eyes lit up}.
i am IN your mouth! {his mouth dropped open in amazement}
i need you to eat a bite of fish to win the big race. can you do it?! {mouth opens, food is shoveled in}"
then it was a tie.
you get where this is going.
parents-1 point.
kids-2 million.
i wonder how long i can use this one...
he of course needed no bribery to eat his candy apple.
a man after my own heart.
oh, and he asks for peanut butter at every meal.
i love this kid.
i am emily.
and i use bribery.
every.
day.
bless me.
