life with laney

Lane:[supposed to be sitting quietly because she refused to take a nap] Mum, I need to go into the lounge (living room).
Me:What for?
Lane:To do my work.
Me:What work do you have to do?
Lane:I need to tidy up.
Me:[thinking that this was sounding pretty good] Okay, you can go to the lounge and tidy up.
Lane:[as she leaves the room] And then I need to make a mess again.
