Learn Something New Every Day. The Sixth.

Today I learned that a little bribery can go a long way.

Now R is 9 (just), I have decided that he should receive regular pocket money and, being the mean Mummy I am, he has been given 3 rules to follow to earn it: Get ready for school without a fuss, eat tea properly and do your homework to the best of your ability.
This morning, on the first day back at school, R was dressed in his uniform beore I got out of the shower. I think P might have swapped him on the ferry home yesterday! I know it won't last, but it was a good start to the term.

AH no mean Mummy if you ask me..we still have rules about helping out and Miss D is too old to qualify for pocket money now!! I think it helps. Good luck with every other morning though!!
