Circle of life

When we survive family trips to Target (and we often do), I reward the kids with stickers or candy.

In the long term, I'm hoping for a Pavlovian response that will eventually cause a manifestation of good behavior at the mere sight of the Target logo.

In the short term, I can bribe them with the promise of rewards to keep them quiet as we navigate the aisles.

On this particular visit, Abby requested the "cute little kitty cats and the adorable little mice" stickers, so she could make a story book when she got home.

"Snack Time for Cats" was not what I expected.

Maybe I need to stop referring to cats only in terms of their usefulness for killing backyard rodents.
