Ginger sitting

For Christmas we gave Braeden and Emma tickets to go see Les Miserables with us at the Village Theater. 

Tonight's the night of the show and I am excited.  As the time approached, we talked about different ideas of what to do with Mark while we were gone (we didn't get him a ticket because we didn't think he'd like it all that much).  He's eleven so we leave him home alone from time to time in small spurts and mostly in the daytime but this is late at night...

He thinks he's too old for a babysitter and I agree that I'm not going to get a twelve year old girl to come over!

So Braeden and Emma came up with a new name for it:  Ginger sitting.

Leif will be the ginger sitter.  He's more than old enough to be fine late at night and still young at heart enough for Mark to feel like he's having a play date.  It couldn't be more perfect.  Our favorite ginger is excited and feels like being left behind with a sixteen year old boy/idol is a big treat.

Also I may get treats to make the night even more festive.

What do you serve for a ginger sitting?  Ginger ale?  Gingersnaps?  Gingerbread?

Mark probably just wants chocolate.
