She Can Be Bought

G-man loves to play Wii. More specifically, he loves to play Lego Star Wars on the Wii. I'd say he's pretty obsessed. I think since he loves it so much, Kiwi really wants to play too. Unfortunately, she is only 4 and struggles to play the game. But, if G is playing, she wants to play too. It creates some contention, although not as much as it could since G knows if they start fighting the Wii gets turned off.
On Friday they were playing and I started hearing the beginnings of a whine fest. G-man asked Kiwi to drop out of their game because she was struggling to do what he wanted her to. Kiwi refused to drop out and I heard the beginnings of an argument, but then it quickly ended and G was able to play on his own.
Five minutes later I heard how they resolved their problem. G came to me and said Kiwi didn't want to drop out so he offered to pay her a dollar if she would. She did and is now one gold dollar coin richer. I guess it pays to be an annoying younger sister.
