The power of candy

This last week while Ella was playing in her room she managed to lock the door and locked herself in. We tried and tried to get the door unlocked, but we just couldn't get in open. Ella was starting to get desperate and kept saying "Mom/Dad help me!" I had to capture this cute, funny, scary moment. When we couldn't get it open we told her to put her hands on the nob and pull down. This lock is one where you just push the button in, so just a little movement would have opened the door. She tried so hard, but just couldn't get it. At one point she had given up and started playing with her toys instead. Then I had a brilliant idea - CANDY! Ella is definitely my little girl, because she loves candy. I put a piece on the floor and told her to look at it (under the door). She kept saying that she wanted it, but I told her she had to twist the handle in order to get it. Low and behold she opened the door! All it took was a little piece of candy.

I don't know if you can tell what these pictures are but the first one is Ella sitting against the door, totally frustrated by us. The second is Ella looking under the door at us, waiting for help. The last is my favorite! She is standing by the door trying to figure out how to twist this tough handle.
