pony up


max has never been one to sit down and be read to.
she likes to climb all over you.
up and down off of the couch.
it's really quite annoying.
so tonight in a last attempt for peace and harmony i begged brennan to let her climb all over him.
and told him i'd give him a $1 if he did.
i barely had enough air to get it out between reading the lines of the book,
with max pawing at the both of us and stumbling every which way.
"i'll give you a dollar if you let max climb and step all over you!"
and you know what?
that little champ didn't complain once after that.
she pawed him.
shoved him.
climbed on and over him.
and not a peep.
no crying that she was stepping on him.
no whining that she poked him in the eye.
it was a great last ten minutes of rumplestiltskin.
AND he forgot about the dollar.
i wonder how long that will work for...
at least until i have to pony up.
genius:)

Hahaha! That is true brotherly love. Both my kids are cuddlers and love stories. I don't know what I would do with a wiggler. Probably offer a dollar to Keith to let the child climb all over him. So smart.
