In between the kitchen and the dining room, we have a pocket sliding door that Lucy loves to play with. One day it was closed, and I was trying to keep Lucy out from being underfoot while I was at the stove, so I feigned helplessness and asked her to open it. “Lucy, I don’t know how to open the slider door. “
Her response:“Sure you do, Mommy!”
My attempt to prolong this distraction: “How? How do we open that door?”
She held out her hand in the position for opening the door, and then in all seriousness explained: “First turn your hand like this, like a jaguar claw. And then pull, pullllll, puuuuuuullllllllll. Just pull!”
Is our youngest watching too much Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go? You be the judge….
