We tell people that we left DD with money for pizza.  I mean really, she's four.  How could we leave her with money for pizza?  She can't open the front door  :D

TootsNYC:
This is so funny! (and fun)

I didn't realize there would be so many of us!

Luci:
Hate to tell you this: We did the same thing, and it really was satisfying and fun.  >:D

I will say that the amusement we got out of making up these outlandish statements really went a LONG way toward removing the irritation.

Every now and then someone would try to stay on the original serious topic (babysitters are dangerous), but we'd just keep going.

(irritation both at the "explain yourself to me, the distant relative, so I can be sure you're a proper parent" implication and irritation at the "what, is the only thing you can think of to say to us about our babysitting arrangements?" reaction)

"We're crate training her/him."  >:D
