How Would You Say This Passive-Aggressively?

"I signed us up for training classes on Sunday at 3:00 starting February 8th. Please call your dad and ask him to watch the girls for us on Sunday afternoons."

I've worked so hard on just saying what I want that I couldn't even think of a way to say that passive-aggressively. Can you do it? Show me in comments...

How about... "There is a training class for Howie on Sundays. Too bad we can't find anybody to watch the girls. You don't think your dad would do that, do you? I'd hate to impose on him, but then, I really do think it is important that we focus on training with Howie, and you seem to be much more satisfied with him when he behaves well. But, never mind, I'll just keep trying to do it myself, even though I know I would be a lot more successful if we - both of us - had more guidance on it...", and then SIGH REALLY BIG.

Would that work?

(I am frightened by how easily I typed that)

"(I)went ahead and signed us up for training classes. And then pepper in a lot of what PSP said in her comment and then... Sooo I wondering... What do YOU suggest we do about the kids?"

Pass-Agg translation:
I did my part. The ball is in your court now.

Thanks, guys. I think I may have to use what you've come up with because HG didn't respond to the direct approach...
