I think she'll go far in life

I told the boys to clean their room a little while ago, and they did. A few minutes later we were all downstairs, and I told Lauren she needed to go clean her room. Here's the conversation that ensued:

Lauren in a conspiratorial tone: Hey, guys! Let's go clean our rooms and surprise mom with it.

Josh: We already cleaned our room.

Lauren: Weeeell, let's go clean my room together. It'll be fun, won't it?!

Josh: No, you have to clean your room.

Lauren: I know . . . how about we all clean it and see who can clean it the fastest??!!

Josh: No.

Lauren: I've got it, Josh! If we all clean my room, I bet mom will give you a reward for being so nice . . . don't you want a reward, Josh?

Me: Lauren, go clean your room.

Lauren: But mom, I'm trying to help Josh and Ethan get a reward.

Isn't she an angel?
