The other night Emily was pleading with me to do something for her. I was busy and told her it would be "a minute." Her patience wore thin, she was dying to have the markers and wanted me to get them for her. I was busily getting dinner ready and did not want markers on the table anyway. All of a sudden a light went off in her little head and she said, "Please mommy, I'll give you $.25 cents if you get it for me." How could I resist a monetary bribe and those big green eyes?
