The way to a little girl's heart

Magoo has been doing great at school. As soon as she gets home she morphs into her evil twin... but I'd much rather her act like that here than at school. Yesterday while she was at school, Bubba and I took a trip to Walmart. It's the cheapest place around here to get apple juice. I was very excited to find a light up Cinderella princess dress and coat that Ellie can use on Halloween, on clearance no less! Along with that I got her a Cinderella tiara, princess undies, and a Cinderella pajama set.

So what does a mother do with all things Cinderella? Hold them over their three-and-a-half year-old's head of course. I'm being mean. I'm using them as surprises to get her to stay dry all day. I showed her every item and with each new one I took out of the bag her squeals of delight became louder... then I broke the news to her that she couldn't get them until she stayed dry all day, and that she could only get them one at a time. You should have seen her face. It was like the end of the world!

I'll let you know if it works!
