A few Sundays back, we took a trip to the local pumpkin patch.  Needless to say, Olivia was less than thrilled for pictures, so I broke out the mommy card: I bribed.  Yes, I did.  This is what took place:

Me: Olivia, all we want are just a few good pictures.  I’ll buy you ice cream if you smile pretty.

Some other mom: *Gasp* You’re bribing her with ice cream for a picture with pumpkins?

Me: Yup.  M&Ms stopped working a long time ago.  Say ‘cheese’!

Enjoy the pictures.
