Sadly, it was raining, sixty degrees, and dinner time, so she was denied

This afternoon, Nora saw me coming in from my run and gave me a big grin. Then she started shrieking and pointing, so I said, "Come over here if you want something." She took a few steps then dropped to her hands and knees to crawl the rest of the way. I got on the floor and held my arms out, because of course she wanted ME, she had missed ME while I was out. But she crawled right past me and came back with a sandal, which she handed to me and held out her little foot with a "Eh." So I put it on. Then I put on the other one.

"She wants her sandals on," I said, getting up off the floor.

"She wants them on because she likes to take them off," replied Andrew.

But we were both wrong, because we turned to see her at the back door, reaching up for the doorknob which she can just touch if she stretches.

She wanted to go outside to play.

awww, poor Nora! Sawyer does the same thing with his shoes and the door knob-it's so sad when you have to say no:(
