Translations of "Stairs"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? When he went down the stairs with all four, caretakers usually sing a song, so I did the same. When I stopped singing in the middle of the song, he stared at me for a while and tried to finish the song. ✳︎please correct my English.🙏
A: Ah ok. I understand. The expression is “on all fours”.

You mixed tenses, so I’m not sure which one you mean. I’ll do a few examples.

When he would go down the stairs on all fours, the [daycare workers/nannies] usually sang a song, so I did the same. When I stopped singing in the middle of the song, he stared at me for a moment and then tried to finish it.

In this example, the “would go” tense indicates that the child going down the stairs on all fours + the song was a regular/habitual occurrence. It takes place in the past only. However, the next sentence indicates he is still going down the stairs on all fours. This indicates that what has changed is the other part of the habitual occurrence, i.e. the caretaker, so you are a new daycare worker/nanny.

When he goes down the stairs on all fours, the [daycare workers/nannies] usually sing a song, so I did the same. When I stopped singing in the middle of the song, he stared at me for a moment and then tried to finish it.

This tense is in the present. It’s still a habitual occurrence, but there are no changes in it. So his caretakers are still the same, you are just a new additional caretaker.

I also changed “caretaker” to “nanny” or “daycare worker”. These terms sound more natural. Just choose the appropriate term.
