Breakfast is the most winning meal around here, so there’s a lot of pressure to perform. My boys usually turn to their mom for sweets but I got this one handled. My boys killed off two each of these Raspberry Muffins, then asked for more.
Being the big pushover that I am, I let them split another one. With that third muffin I managed to rope them into helping me with some house chores, like cleaning up the backyard and garage. I may be a pushover, but I definitely know the power of a good bribe.
Not everyone would agree with this parenting style, but it certainly helps to have a few extra hands to finish things up quickly. It was a win-win all the way around–I got to lighten my load while my boys got more pool time out of it. And another muffin.
