How an Attorney's son learns to tie his shoes:


The Parties
  1. Roy D. Pyatt, the Dad (“Dad”); and

  1. D------- Pyatt, a seven year old boy (“D”)


Whereas Dad desires D to learn to tie his own shoes, independently, and without the assistance of Dad or any other adult;

Whereas D desires to earn money to pay tithing, save, and have fun; and

Whereas D desires the aid of “Red Lace, Yellow Lace”;

The parties hereby agree to be bound as follows:


The Recitals are intended to be part of this Agreement and are incorporated herein.  The parties agree that if D learns to tie his own shoes, as described above, on or before Christmas Day, December 25, 2011, Dad will pay D the sum of FIVE and no/100s dollars ($5.00).  The parties agree that said amount constitutes full and fair consideration.

D desires an extension beyond Christmas Day in order to fulfill his obligations under this Agreement.  D is concerned that the book “Red Lace, Yellow Lace”—which teaches children how to tie their own shoes, and upon which he has placed a hold with the Library—will not be available from the library in sufficient time as to allow him to both check out the book and learn how to tie his shoes.  The parties agree to extend the timeframe in which D must learn to tie his owns shoes to January 1, 2012.  In return for this additional consideration, D agrees to make Dad and Mom’s bed for seven days in a row, beginning Saturday, December 17, 2011, and ending Friday, December 23, 2011.  

If, for any reason, D fails to make Dad and Mom’s bed for the seven days described above, the original date of December 25, 2011 will be the time in which D must fully perform his obligation under this Agreement.

Dad agrees to issue payment to D within twenty-four (24) hours after D proves, to the satisfaction of an objectively reasonable person, that he has fulfilled his obligation under this Agreement.  For purposes of this Agreement, the parties appoint Sheena A. Pyatt to serve as the objectively reasonable person for evaluating D’s performance.  Should Sheena A. Pyatt refuse to serve as requested, the parties agree to appoint Jenn Harbertson or Ryan Harbertson to said position, in that order of preference.

DATED this 16th day of December, 2011 by the parties’ respective signatures.
