I just had the most fun babysitting I think I've ever had. I fed the boys dinner, they made shrinky-dinks, we made chocolate chip cookies, (the Nestle Tollhouse kind -- I don't need to post the recipe, do I?) and they decided to pack up the extra cookies on a plate and hide them for their parents. There was flour, sugar, and walnuts ALL over their kitchen, but it was totally worth it! They created this whole treasure/scavenger hunt thing -- they left clues all over the house in a sequence, leading up to the plate of cookies at the end! It was so sweet, and their parents were thrilled when they got home.
Plus, I made fifty bucks! In my mind, any event that involves chocolate chip cookies and fifty bucks is a success.
