Strange child...

I thought the boys could use a little motivation to swim all the way across the pool without touching the bottom, or the side of the pool. So, I told each of them that I would give them a "prize" when they accomplished the goal. Jack got all of the way across today and was quite proud and very excited about his "prize". I had not actually gotten a prize yet so, I told him that I was doing some shopping later and would pick out his prize while I was out shopping. He was a little anxious and curious about his prize.

A little while later, he was talking to Spencer and wondering about his "prize". He told Spencer that he hoped that his prize would be a "gift card to an ice cream shop".


Huh?? That is his biggest wish?!?! What 7 year old wants a gift card? And, to an ice cream shop....like we have ever taken him to and ice cream shop and made him buy his own ice cream!!
In case you were wondering, unfortunately, I did not know about this request until after I had already purchased him a bag of Swedish Fish. I guess the poor child will have to suffer with his bag of Swedish Fish and the 6 gallons of ice cream that we have in the freezer.
