After a few days of rain or otherwise cold and raw weather, it's nice and sunny out today. While I was working on dinner, Xander went out to play. I asked Jessica if she wanted to go out and play with him. No.
I was slicing up some watermelon and asked her if she wanted any. She did. Then I asked her to go outside and ask Xander if he wanted any. My theory was that once she got outside, she'd realize she wanted to play out there. She came back in and told me Xander did not want any watermelon. I thought my plan had failed but a minute later she grabbed her bowl of watermelon and told me she was going outside to play.
