dirty little secrets

I pay my kids a dime each day for taking a vitamin.

Wow! I want to be your kid. I could make some money easily. What kind of vitamins do you give? We haven't done vitamins in a long time. I probably should again, huh??

My kids despise any kind of vitamins/medicine so I'm pretty non-consistent about them. We've tried the gummies, the thin strips that melt and the sugary/sour Flinstone ones. But once the school year started again with coughs, I put my foot down. "You WILL take your vitamins....and to make it more appealing -I'll pay ya!" So they gag down their Barney Rubble with a glass of lemonade and I hand them a dime. (Though the first day, I doled out quarters because I didn't have any dimes)

All because of you, I went to Target today and bought vitamins. I'll let you know how it goes. Oh, and I read on Kimmie's blog that you're not a pet person. I knew I loved you. I'm so allergic I never got used to animals. Tonight at the mall we stopped at the pet store and the girls sighed all over the place that we can't have a dog.
