I'm trying to convince myself that it isn't bribery, it's a reward system!  Positive reinforcement!  But I'm also trying to choose carefully--leading off with going out and buying a present probably wasn't the smartest move on my part.

So yesterday, I dialed it down a bit.  Willow darling, if you take your nap, we get to play with fingerpaints.  Doesn't that sounds like fun?  Don't you want to go to sleep?

Turns out, it did sound like fun.  She did want to go to sleep.  She went to sleep in fifteen minutes, and woke up saying "Now let's play with fingerpaints."

Absolutely, my love, here we are, play like a little angel, because what could be more wholesome and childlike than fingerpaints?

Except for how, apparently, we're doing creepy zombie parts demon-summoning spellwork instead.

Don't ask me what happened to my fingerpaints.  So they got masticated bits of flesh in them--it wasn't on my watch.  Who knows what dark powers Willow calls up in her sleep?

Ack! It's like a Peckinpah movie!

She's adorable, though. :)

In an evil, demonic sort of way.
