Owen completed his Big Puzzle yesterday without assistance. When Kris’ parent last visited they brought him this and he plays with it almost every day. He usually asks for help but yesterday I had my hands in dishwater and I suspected that he could do it without help. I told him to try to do it without me and he balked, so with the ace in my pocket of knowing he wanted a cookie, I offered one as incentive. He took the bait and plunged in. Before I was done with the dishes he had completed the entire puzzle all by himself.
