We have a bowl of peanut M&Ms in the house. Just to grab. And reward our kiddos when they’re good, or even just because.
I tossed Luik one today. He smiled. Then I tossed him a second. He was ecstatic.
But it was a test. I wanted to see if he’d share one with his older sister upstairs. I ran up a few seconds after him only to find he’d stuffed both in his own mouth. No loss; I expected him to do that much. But there was the off chance he had thought of more than just himself. Next time.
The main reason we don’t give more often than we do? We’re only thinking about the 2 peanut M&Ms in our hand, rather than the whole bowl our Dad owns. ch:
