She just wants to direct

The Girl Child hopped out of bed last night to keep her mother and me company as we brushed our teeth. These little visits are usually quite welcome. One of the things the Girl Child likes to do during her time with us is to jump up into our bed and hang out for awhile until we're done. But she's a nice girl and she always asks:

GC: Mamma? Can I go opp i sengen din? [mixing Norwegian and English]

[long pause as Mamma's mouth is filled with tooth brush and tooth paste]

[GC appears to grow a bit impatient with not getting an answer but seems to know that Mamma is not going to respond with a full mouth]

GC: [Tone: Bright and cheerful] Just nod your head yes, Mamma!

Which my wife did as I hid my face so the Girl Child did not see me laugh.

Okay, I'll bite. What's "opp i sengen din" mean?!

Hang out with you. Wild guess.

Funny stuff as always with the GC

My bad, guys, I thought it was clear from context otherwise would have translated -- sorry! It means -- up in your bed.

Ya know, if you threw around more Norwegian on your blog, we could all learn it in no time!

I understood it. At least Swedish and Norwegian intermingle well :)
