All children are on the same page about one firm truth: None of their toys are quite as exciting as something new.
It doesn’t matter if the kids have a basement full of toys that could keep a whole classroom entertained. When you show up to babysit, the last thing they want to do is play with their “boring” old toys. And you can only build so many couch forts before the kids start begging for the TV remote or iPad. Finding something to do while mom and dad are gone ends up being so much more painful than it should be.
