You're having a good time when there's a crash from the room with the younger kids. You and the other father go running to investigate.
Entering the bedroom, you find the boys standing over a desk lamp, which had obviously been knocked off a headboard. It doesn't take much discussion to learn that your two boys had been showing off their gymnastics skills, using the bunk beds as a launch pad, and had misjudged a jump a bit.
You've lost count of how many times you've told them not to do this kind of thing indoors, and they have been spanked for it before. Your host's sons admit that they were involved as well, though he doesn't seem too upset.
While talking to you, he'd mentioned that the boys are all pretty good boys, and that he doesn't have much trouble with them, because he's actually spanked most of them at some time. Beyond that, you can't help but notice that the bedroom you're in has a paddle hanging by the door (For the Cute Little Deer with the Bear Behind).
Your two younger sons are waiting nervously for you to say something.
Do you leave them waiting?
