I try to make a point of bringing Singing Biscuit a treat whenever I pick him up early from his after-school program. The reason for doing this is that I often remind him to get his homework done so that all we will have to do at home is a review, and I know he sometimes feels really bad if he does not manage to complete his homework. We have an hour & change commute home in the evenings and anything that keeps his spirits and blood sugar up during the nighttime routine is worthwhile investment.
Of late, I’ve been bringing him two slices from his favorite pizzeria. As I walked back to the car with his slices en route to picking him up, I couldn’t help but laugh at myself. Here I am bringing the kid a treat for picking him up early.
Have I gone soft?
Is this bribery?
I don’t know what it is, but I will say this much, when I reached the car and the pizza’s aroma began filling up the air, I was way too tempted to down those slices myself…
