Desperate times call for desperate measures

So I had to do it. I had to bribe my son with lot's of candy for him to wear his halloween costume.

He just didn't want to put it on. This was our conversation:

Me: Can you please put your costume on?
D: No!
Me: I will take your picture
D: No!
Me: You will look so handsome
D: No!
Me: How about a show?
D: No!
Me: How about a treat:
D: (he is thinking)...What kind of treat?
Mom: How about fruit snacks?
D: Ummm, I think I will do it for candy
Mom: What! (shocked that he was negotiating with me, and he totally knew I was desperate) Okay, how about some candy corns
D: Okay, sounds good

I can't believe my son to be three years old can be the best negotiator, but it worked, I gave in. Oh well, what are you going to do. He ate bundles and bundles of candy corns (which now he tells me is his favorite), but I finally got every last article of clothing to make his costume complete, well except for the crown. But he looked so cute anyways. I will have to post pics later.
