I sent my 2.5 year old dd to daycare today and picked her up at 1:30, her WHITE coat was covered in blue and red paint! I guess they made snow sculptures in her backyard and painted them.
That coat cost almost $80. Can I sue??

Just wash it, it should come out. It won't even fit her next year. Don't sweat the petty things in life.

LOL.

Can you sue? Sure, people can sue for anything.

But, this is the definition of "sue happy" that people talk about. 

I'm sorry about your kids coat, but this is ridiculous. Simply ask the babysitter to pay for the new coat. If she doesn't, and it's that important to you, find a new babysitter.

If she is going to be getting stuff messed up why are you continuing to send her in nicer stuff?

You want to sue someonefor $80?  Someone who you trust with your child, but obviously not a coat.  Who the hell buys their TODDLER an $80 white coat!
