From the mouths of babes

Prompted by my 5 year old: "Mummy, why is the baby-sitter called a baby-sitter, when we are actually children?"

Thought Wikipedia might just have the answer to that one, but sadly not. It does have other interesting facts though including the term Baby-Sit first appeared in 1937. Makes you wonder what they called it before 1937.

Hi Baba - glad you love the blog. To get red dog poo bins I think you need to be nice to your councillors or live somewhere where dog mess has not been previously cleaned up by their owners. x
