The Oscars are a big deal at our house. For several years now my mom, dad, sister and I bet on who will win each category. The loser has to buy everyone else ice cream. This is a fun and great tradition (probably more fun since I’ve not had to buy one round yet). But, even more – I love now that my teen kids who don’t always want to hang out and watch TV with me for a full evening are into it to. I guess the old bribery of “if you do this I’ll give you ice cream or a cookie” doesn’t make me as bad a parent as I once thought.
