Bribery or just good motivation?

When leaving a playdate recently with some of Griff's best girlfriends....and some of mine, we had a hard time getting motivated to "go home."  So, I grabbed a Reese egg that was at my friends house and told him if he got his dipe changed, shoes and jacket on and got in the car he could have it.  I have never seen Griff move so fast.   Well, I mean move so fast at something productive and not just running around like a maniac.
 
So he got in his carseat, and I gave it to him.  I talked to him the whole way home and it didn't even cross my mind that he didn't just pop the whole thing in his mouth and be done with it.  Oh no, he decided to hold it in his palm and slowly lick the chocolate egg until it was gone.  When I opened the door to get him out, this is what I found.
I never thought I'd be one of those moms who bribed their kids, let alone bribes of candy.  But, let me tell you.....it works. :)

Happy Friday!
