Tonight, folks, after two hours of him jack-in-a-boxing in and out of bed, I bribed my son to sleep. It was not without its amusing moments.
'If you go to sleep, tomorrow we can go for ice-cream!'
'From the ice cream van!'
'Yes, we'll have ice cream from the ice cream van. What else shall we do?'
'Go to the park!'
'Yes, good idea, we can go to the park. What else would you like to do?'
'Get some money!'
'OK...... what else can we do?'
'Pay the lady'
'Aha.... but what else can we do?'
'Buy a white ice-cream'
'I see. So we get some money, go to the park, find the ice-cream van, pay the lady and buy a white ice-cream'
'What else can we do?'
'Buy a yellow ice cream.'
