Bribery taken too far.

Me: "Anna will you quit peeling your green beans apart and just eat them?"

Anna: "But I wanna get the widdle green beans out da middle."

Me: (thinking to myself) "It wouldn't take you an HOUR to eat if you'd just EAT!"

Me: "Just finish eating your green beans please."

Anna:  "But what do I get for the green beans?"

Me: "What do you mean?"

Anna: "What do I get for eating da green beans?  Um, I get aaaahhhh... (her eyes looking to the ceiling for an answer) ...a popsicle?"

Me:  "No popsicle.  You just get a nice full tummy for eating your green beans."

Anna:  "Awwh man."

Anna: "But I can get a popsicle after I take a good nap!"

Me: "Maybe...(sigh)."
