The baby stopped crying and looked at her.

"I will tell you what. Now you will go to sleep, so that in a few hours from now you (rest) for quite a while. Then we will take a walk outside, okay?"

"That's great mom," Angela said. "In a few weeks you (work out) for over a month. That's more than I could manage!"

"Yes, this is true," her mother agreed. "You (work out) for maximum 2 weeks before you got too lazy."
