Attempting bribery once again, I thought that if I had hot and gooey cookies waiting for the kids when they got home from school yesterday, then it would brighten everyone's spirits, and the "homework hour" wouldn't be such an ordeal.
The Verdict: Uh, there was really no change. Kamy still had tears when we worked on her math (long division), Keaton was still bothered by Georgie, who kept interrupting him when he was trying to read, and Kolby still had fits when asked to write his spelling words 3x's each.
However, our bellies thanked us for the super yummy cookies, as we licked the chocolate off our faces and fingers.
And would ya look at Keaton's fingers? Clean as a whistle. I was super impressed...enough to give everyone seconds. Clean hands=less germs=less sickness for us and Kimble.
