I was in the kitchen getting some chili ready for the crockpot during Cate’s nap when I heard…”Hi mommy!”
Cate finally learned that she can open the door to her room and leave. Her doorknob is a little stiffer than the rest in the house so even though she’s been able to open doors for a long time, she’s never left her room. Until today.
Good news is that whoever lived here before us must’ve had a similar problem because the doorknob is turned inside-out, meaning you can lock it from the outside. I put her back in her room and hit the lock (sounds mean, huh?) She didn’t ever go to sleep. She just beat on the door, angrily, because now she knows it should be able to open.
