You gotta help clean up. I know you understands. You gotta help mommy clean up. Come on. Speaker2- No, no. Speaker1- Come on here. I'll help-- I'll start. Pick up the diapers. See how mommy's picking up the diapers and you put them in the drawer. Speaker2- No, no. Speaker1- Yes. Speaker2- No, no. Speaker1- Pick up the diapers. Speaker2- No. Speaker1- Grant, pick up the diapers and put them in the drawer. Speaker2- No. Speaker1- Yes. We have to clean up the room. We can't have the room being messy like this. It's not safe. Speaker2- No. Speaker1- And it just doesn't look good. How are we supposed to get your clothes if they're all over the floor. Come on. Speaker2- No.
