Problem-solving, in dialog

Simone: "I am going to take off my muddy shoes."

Me: "Good idea."

SImone: "Can this be a house where we have to take off our shoes?"

Me: "You can pretend we're a house like that, yes."

Simone: "No, I mean for real."

Me: "Well, the problem is, Mommy has to wear her shoes inside. My doctor told me I had to wear shoes all the time, even inside. So we can't make this a house where you have to take off your shoes indoors because I need to wear my shoes."

SImone: "Oh. How about we make this a house where kids have to take off their shoes but adults don't?"

Me: "Check with your sister."

[Sister said OK.]
