Re: Lost toy at sitter's house, advice?
I'm in the lesson learned camp.
My niece always had to bring a toy in when she came over and then (as a single child) would get upset and not want to share. Once she left a xylophone that she had gotten on her way up at an antique store. In our massive play area I didn't even realize it had been left and of course my kids got to it and a piece got broken off. My sister didn't expect me to "replace" it. Once same niece broke a *very* special toy of my son's and though I was upset over the toy it was my fault for having it out while she was there.
