Normally by this point in the year we’re on the countdown to Christmas but this year, in Harper’s opinion, we’ve got something much bigger to countdown to… the release of the My Little Pony film. Yes my folks, those little unicorns are on the big screen next month. So in preparation we’ve been making unicorn popcorn as an after-school treat and having a Friday-night movie night. Anyone else do this as an end of the week treat when they were kids?
For the last few months I’ve had a situation on my hands that I wasn’t sure how to solve. Harper has had a case of the fibs over washing her hands after using the toilet. It’s been the classic case of fibbing where she swears she washed her hands when I know she hasn’t. So, like all good parents, I needed to think of a way to bribe her – but I’d exhausted the use of stickers and reward charts. Then, like an evil genius, I had a cunning plan to put her toys into soap because she’d want to wash her hands to get them out!
