We tried it again. You know, leaving the girls home alone. This time for an hour.
Before we left ...
Henry to Amanda: Okay, what do you do in an emergency?
Amanda: Blank stare.
Henry: If the house is on fire, what do you do?
Amanda long pause: I'm waiting ...
Oh my WORD!! What were we THINKING to leave her alone? EVER?!
Henry: Grab the phone, run outside and call 911!
Amanda all nonchalant: Okay.
Looks like we'll be employing baby-sitters for a while yet.
