Congratulations to Gideon!

I love my kids' gymnastics class! Their coach works them hard from the second they walk in to the gym, to the second they leave. he has them doing push ups and chin ups and hand stands and cartwheels and all sorts of stuff. At the end of every class, when they're worn out and exhausted, he has them climb a rope to the top of the gym. We've been going for a couple months now, but neither of the kids could get to the top, to ring the bell. They're always so close, but they quit right before they make it. Every day after gymnastics, i take the kids to get $1 chicken sandwiches at Jack In The Box. So last week, I told Chloe and Gideon that if they rang the bell, they could get **whatever they wanted** at JITB. This never happens, because if it did, i'd be broke. So... they both tried with all their might. Chloe got *so* close, but didn't quite make it. But Gideon, after much struggling, MADE IT TO THE TOP!!! Yay, Gideon!! so we went to JITB and celebrated with a strawberry milkshake, curly fries, and two tacos (which he didn't eat beacause they were too spicy).

Isn't it lovely when bribery actually works for good?
