I needed their rooms cleaned up.
I wanted them to practice their piano.
Showers are required.
Litter box must be cleaned.
Please girls, do your chores.
Girls, remember I asked you to clean the litter box?
SweetGirl YOU are the one with the piano lesson tomorrow, not me.

Is this my life now?
Let the bribery begin.
Clean your room and you can have ice cream for desert.
(You have never seen a room cleaned so fast in your life)
Who wants McDonald’s? Oh gee, wait a second. Did you clean the litter box and practice your piano yet? We can’t possibly go for a treat like McDonalds until you take care of those things first!
What’s that? You want to stay up and watch a little extra TV? Hmmm well sure, but how about jumping in the shower first.
Is this wrong? Maybe, but frankly it’s been a long flippin week here in the Suburbs and it is only Tuesday. If bribing your kids is wrong, I don’t want to be right!
Oh and PS. If you meet a Mama in the Suburbs who says she has never bribed her babies. Yeah, she is a liar.
