This incident involved a kitchen and food, but no cooking. My wife and I had gone out to eat leaving our 11 year old daughter in the hands of a 15 year old sitter and sitter’s 12 year old sister. Everything seemd ok when we got home, we paid the sitter and went to bed.
The next morning we noticed green stains on the ceiling and odd marks on the floor and walls. Under cross examination our daughter told a tale of one of the girls eating green apple sauce on the counter and falling with it. We bought the story, until our daughter had an assignment in school to write about a tall tale they might have told.
Unfortunately for her she left her assignment out where we could read it…the truth was they had an all out green apple sauce food fight and spent the night trying to clean it up, but couldn’t reach the ceiling.
