I left my kids home alone ETA

Because I had to work today and my sitter wasn't available. I have no back ups. They have a phone and have been texting and calling me and they know how to make their own food. I will be home in an hour for lunch and finish my shift. I left at 915, will be back by 1230 leave again at 135 and be back shortly after 4. They are 6 & 7 and in the state of Texas, there are no laws on ages for children staying home alone. It is up to the parent as to how much they trust the children and how well they can care for themselves.

And so I can stop repeating myself: I cannot call out of work, I'm in the military.

My confession, let the comments begin....


ETA: PHOTO PAGE 13 of what I came home to!
