My life with a 5-yr old, in a nutshell

Me:  Lillian, you need to clean your bedroom and the bathroom counter this morning.  Which one do you want to do first?
Lillian:  I just want to do them both at the same time!
Me:  I don't think your arms are long enough to do both at the same time!
Lillian:  I just want to get them both done in 1 second.  How can I do that?
Me:  I don't think you can get them done in 1 second, but if you want to get them done as fast as possible, going and working is the best way.  As President Monson says, "Work will win when wishy-washy wishing wont!"
Lillian:  I don't think that's true.

I know, Lillian, I know.
