Left younger, childless brother in charge of kids.

He turned up on time. Monkey Boy was at gymnastics, so car seats were sorted and directions given.

“Yeah, whatever, can you just make sure you tape Desperate Housewives tonight. Make sure the video is set to channel 7 and just tape it, OK? Thanks.”

Got home, kids asleep, brother asleep on couch.
