Daughter and Son in Law went to see Billy Joel last night at Madison Square Garden. 16 year old baby sitter is the daughter of a good friend a few doors down, the real estate agent that sold them their home and her Dad is a Sargent on the local police force.
When they left she not only had a friend over but the friend brought her boyfriend. They had Dominos Pizza and trashed the boxes under the neighbors car, smoked at least one cigar in the house (they found the wrapper in the garbage), ate a box of Girl Scout cookies belonging to someone that ordered them from Caroline and drank all the sodas in the house. This morning Caroline realized her GameBoy and the cartridge in it were gone from the charger in the living room.
The sitter will probably not see the light of day until she is 21 and the father is on the case of the friend, boyfriend and the missing Gameboy.
We are the usually principal baby sitters but we were booked for Donald and Sabrina in the morning and Madelyn last night.
This is the daughter of a trusted friend, an immediate neighbor whose father is a policeman. Imagine how bad it could have gotten. There could have been more theft, damage, what if the boy had entered Caroline's room (or Philip's)? I shudder to think.
This kid pet sits for them when they are gone and has the keys to the house and alarm codes. Wonder what goes on when they are on vacation?
I guess she won't be doing that any more.
