Adventures In Babysitting

Letting the neighbors' kids wait for the school bus in your house is illegal. Turns out it counts as running an unlicensed day care center.

The State of Michigan does seem to be on this one, and making moves in the direction of common sense and community spirit, but Oy frickin Gevalt. This whole thing started because some other neighbor lodged a complaint. I wonder what the hell that complaint said.

Most of us have taken care of, or at least extensively interacted with, kids at some point in our lives. How do you handle 'em? My nieces and nephews usually bombard me with whatever's cool that day, and I look at what they've got and ask questions and let 'em know I'm interested and paying attention. Sometimes it's a very quick thing, but my brother's oldest boy can go for a half-hour without taking a breath.
