Nanny and little Flossie are in the nursery trying to quiet baby Alice. Cook was supposed to bring up some hot milk, but she has not arrived.
Nanny can't leave baby Alice and little Flossie alone while she goes to the kitchen to get the milk.
The baby is becoming inconsolable and now little Flossie is starting to whine.
Nanny is realizing that very soon she will have to bundle the baby up and take little Flossie's hand and negotiate the steep back stairs to the kitchen.
Oh, where is Cook?
It is tea time in the parlour. Bridie has brought the tea tray for Mrs. Green, the twins, Gertie and Gadys, and Mabel, but she doesn't have fresh milk. Cook said she would bring it right up once she had poured some from the pail into a suitable pitcher.The tea is getting cold and the children are starting to fuss and tease each other.
Where is Cook with the milk?
Oh no! The puppy has knocked over the milk pail. He was chasing the kittens around the kitchen.
The kittens have given up the game in favour of nice fresh milk.
Doesn't Cook see what is happening. Why hasn't she shooed away the animals and cleaned up the milk?
There's Cook. She is in the kitchen after all. But she has forgotten about the milk and she hasn't noticed the naughty puppy or the kittens. She is busy trying to capture the family's fish course for tonight's dinner. It insists on crawling out of the bowl and pinches Cook when she trys to grab it.Oh dear, what can happen next?
