bribery

see the photos in my photo blog...look at erika's sour face

little girls change every day...erika used to love to pose for pictures...then suddenly she hates it! fickle, fickle! wasn't surprise as a little girl is entitled to change her mind. after all she is a WOMAN.

so taking photos of her is either mommy sneaking behind her back and trying to capture the "moment"...or if i was caught by her...(as you can see from the photos - proof) erika will be give a long, black face or worse...turn her head away or run away from the camera...or in retaliation...she will demand that I hand over the camera to her! (see the photos where she stretch out her hands...she was demanding i pass the camera to her!)

nomadicmom said, "ya lah..Erika look soooo angry leh. Even in those that she wasn't looking into the camera ones. Maybe you should try some bribes..heee hee.."you smile I give you sweets"...hee hee"

do i want to resort to bribery? should i? or should i just let her have a phase of "angry photos" to show. sometimes i do bribe her...who doesn't do that to their children? but i know it's not a solution lah. oh well, when she grows up...she can enjoy her "angry photos".

maybe she may outgrow this phase and change her mind AGAIN! lui yan...lui yan...

Or maybe a threat... For me, most times are threats rather than bribery with my boys. "If you don't smile properly, no gameboy!". Does the trick all the time. Kekeke...
