I forgot to give the baby sitter the key, so they were locked out for three hours, late at night. (Ok, that's _not_ the brag!)

The babysitter is constitutionally incapable of underballing anyone's capacity for anything. She asked DS (almost 2) what he would like to do. So they went to the playground untill she was too cold, at which point she told him she was too cold, and could he show her how to get to the pizza place (which she knew was walking distance from our house, and that he often picks up pizza from on our games night, but which she had never seen before). It's about 5 blocks from the park, on boring residental streets with exactly one corner store per corner with very few exceptions.

He did. He took a wrong turn at one point and apparently said "oopsie," so she asked if he'd taken a wrong turn, and he said yes, looked around, and got back on track.

Did I mention this was the first time this particular person has ever babysat for us?

We arrived home in terror, having discovered the error, to find them trotting happily down the street with dinner for us (!).

Apparently they both found it all VERY funny.
