not above bribery…

I’m not above bribing my kids… today we went to Wal-Mart and all three kids had their “own” money.

I had visions of getting in to Wal-Mart… getting my shopping done… and getting out.  There isn’t a Mom on this planet who doesn’t know what it is like to go to Wal-Mart (or KMart… or Toys R Us… or the mall… or… or… or…) with kids who have their “own” money…. multiple trips between the toy section, the clothing section, the candy section and the craft supplies section… makes me exhausted just typing about it.  Multiply 3 kids with their own money and a mom who hates Wal-Mart and you’ve a disaster in the making.

Is it okay to praise the LORD for bribes?  hmmm….  that may be a doctrinal question for another time.  Today, though, I was seriously saying THANK YOU LORD!  

This is what is right next to Wal-Mart…

Eric reminded me of this fun fact about Steak ‘n Shake…

This mom had an “ahhhh” moment and offered a bribe…

if we can get in and out of Wal-Mart in 35 minutes, we can have Happy Hour

I don’t think I’ve ever had a faster, more enjoyable shopping experience with 3 kids, their own money and Wal-Mart!

So glad I’m not above bribery!

  1. lol! I've totally done that only with Sonic. My daughter loves to get vanilla Cokes at Sonic, so it works perfectly. 😉

  2. Oh, bribery is God's gifts to mothers. I would so do that!! Have done that would be more accurate.

  3. Very creative thinking, I think congratulations are in order for that one!!

I'd love to know what you think...
