I am in a grumbly mood today. Last night, Lu went to babysit for the single gentleman down the street (the widower with three little boys). He said he would need her from 4:00-10:00pm. Okay, I thought... 10:00 is a little late for a school night, but it should be ok.
At 10:40, after his not answering Lu's texts and calls, I went over to the house and sent her home to go to bed.
The gentleman shows up at... drumroll, please... 12:30am.
He was a bit surprised to see me in his house. I let him know that Lu cannot be out that late on a school night babysitting, and that she will not be able to sit for him again if he cannot be home at a decent hour.
He was apologetic, and vowed that it would never happen again.
What would you have done in this situation? And should I let her sit for this gentleman again on a school night?
