I have to be nice!!

My little sister informed Rylin yesterday that if she was nice this week on Fri she would take her to the princess movie and ice skating.  Now Rylin has was sick over the weekend and has been rather grabby so I was hoping this deal would be a positive for me.  The screaming for no reason was getting old really quick.  After my sister left the house this little girl made a huge transformation.  First she left stuff out in the living room (daddy doesn't like toys in living room) and informed me that she had to "be nice" so she picked it up.  Next  she spilt paint on the floor and immediately grabbed a towel and started cleaning it up again stating she had to "be nice".  Later in the evening she started sweeping my floor  and even went on to mop (let me tell you is was past due anyways).  After she was done mopping she told me that everyday after school she was going to do chores because she had to "be nice"!!!! To top the evening off when her brother was a butt head to her and you could tell she just wanted to scream at the top of her lungs all you heard from her was "I have to be nice"!!!!!  Gotta love incentives and witty little sisters.  Thanks Whitney love you to the moon and back!!!

  1. I guess we're all motivated by incentive....kids included. I know it sure lights a fire under my little ones :)
