You Don't Say

The scene:  I am working in the upstairs office.  Dad and the kids are downstairs.  I hear Dad tell Secondo and Terzo, "Stay here with the baby while I go upstairs and put the laundry in the dryer."

Two minutes later, I hear footsteps coming up the stairs and Secondo and Terzo saying to each other, "Let's tell Mom!"  Also, the baby is screaming.

Dad enters the scene to ask, "WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?  WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?"

Secondo:  "I want to tell her about the Wii!"

Dad:  "WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?"

Secondo:  "We're supposed to stay with the baby!  But we got CARRIED AWAY."
