encouraging progress

Yesterday morning, I discovered that the scale was stuck at about 20 pounds COUNTERclockwise from zero. While I wasn't certain of the cause of its demise, I had a good idea who the responsible party might be. When questioned later that day, I was very pleased that for perhaps one of the first times ever, he admitted that it was he who had played with it till it was jammed (permanently). I rewarded him for telling the truth in hopes of encouraging more of this behavior!!! (the truth-telling, not the scale destroying...)

  1. wtg about rewarding the truth telling. It's a very good way to have it happen again I think. :)

    You're about the only person I really miss there in Flag. (I guess there's one or two more...) I'm so, so happy that you're blogging now.
