Read-a-thon was coming to a close at school, and I had an ah-ha moment. My daughter asked to wear her Halloween Alice in Wonderland heals to school if she completed it. At first, I didn’t want them to get scuffed up. Then I thought I might be a little embarrassed with the other moms. Then I said what the heck. This is yes, mommy day!
Now the reason I am proud of my decision is that I let her determine her reward, and it wasn’t material. Watching her tap dance around the concrete with her animal socks made me smile.
