The List

When Baby Boy was 10-months old, Darling Husband and I took off for a long weekend getaway.

My brother and his wife watched him. I typed up 7 single-spaced pages of minute-by-minute instructions plus a whole trouble shooting glossary.

It took 6-hours to write. I made them 4 copies laminated in color coded binders. I had a $650 phone bill by the time we returned.

Skip ahead three years.

DH and I are going away to celebrate our 5-year wedding anniversary.

This is the list I am leaving the sitter:

"Don't let him fall into the lake."

Ah, the slippery slope of motherhood.
