decoding childspeak

child: Can I play in Lucy’s room?

translation: Can I carry every conceivable toy and piece of bedding out of my room into Lucy’s room, thereby making a huge mess and at some point causing my sister to scream about not getting to use ANY of the toys etc. that I’ve dropped into her room?

Parent to lazy to get out of bed: Sure.
