Left my daughter at a playdate until 10:00 last night. We had a miscommunication and DH thought I was getting her, I thought he was getting her. Whoops.
So, this thread got picked up a day later and I've been on vacation. DD is 3 and she was with our old neighbors playing with her little girlfriends. As I said, there are six kids total and it's not a typical "playdate" because the oldest kid (16 yo) babysits my daughter as well. She has stayed late before - but only when the 16 year old was actually "babysitting" so I guess they didn't think much of it.
I talked to the mom and teenager since -- they were watching our dog while we were away. We all laughed it off.
Specifically what happened was... I was out drinking. It was my going away party from work, I got a new job. Knowing I'd be incapacitated, I had DH drop her off between his job and night class. I expected him to get her after class too, but apparently that went over his head. He went right home thinking she was with me at the restaurant (not sure where that logic plays in, but I stopped trying to figure it out). As I was leaving, I called him to say that I was getting a ride home and to plan on bringing me to my car before work in the morning, and btw, how's DD? He thought I had her.
