A little chuckle...
Simone and Andrew were sleeping, so only Jack was going to go to the Y with Steve. We realized Childwatch wasn't open yet, but we'd already told Jack he was going. I wanted Steve to work out while the little ones were asleep, so I offered to give Jack a present instead of going to the Y. [Yes, I often resort to bribery, especially to assuage disappointment I'm responsible for causing...].
Jack, a little while later: "So why wasn't the childcare place open at Daddy's gym?"
Me: "Because the babysitter wasn't there yet."
Jack: "Could we have hired another babysitter to take with us? Then you could do your work."
Me: "Well, that's why I gave you a new slinky to keep you occupied."
Jack, with a thoughtful look: "Oh. I see. So the slinky is babysitting me. I gotcha."
