I saw scooters on sale at 1/2 price not too long ago and since Lucy has been literally nagging me about a scooter for more months than I can recount, I snapped them up. We got them a few weeks ago but rather than just gifting them, I had the girls work on their responsibility charts to earn them. Together we set a goal and mapped out the way for them to achieve their stickers to earn the scooters. I think it helped that I set the scooters up for display so they served as a visual reminder when things started going awry behavior-wise.
Bribery? Yes. A relatively peaceful week? Yes. A win for mama.
