Do you remem­ber how much fun it was as a kid, when a week­end treat was served as a sur­prise on a week day?

Last week, I asked my son if he would pre­fer a banana or an ice cream, after school. The ques­tion alone was such a sur­prise to him that I could see him try­ing to dis­guise his crazy luck, while simul­ta­ne­ously smil­ing and jump­ing to find the ice cream cones. Next, we shared three cheers and I added, “OK, so now grab that cone and that banana and I’d love your help with a lit­tle some­thing special.”
