Erin, that's crazy! About your job, your aunt, Atlanta, all of it! I missed you though, so I hope you are back at work in the new position soon so I can see your posts again. And other stuff, too, you know.
Chrissy, I do think it's fairly common for parents to forget a kid when they are out of their routine. The difference is with childcare - that is their business. They were hired specifically to watch that kid. Meaning, watch it. And keep it occupied productively. Not to do whatever else they were doing and bring the kid along. It's like our janitor who never cakes the trash out if he can help it. I won't pretend I'm perfect about taking my trash out, but dude. You're a janitor. You are on the clock and being paid to take the trash out. Go take it out! If that analogy makes any sense at all!
