    No I wouldnt leave the boys home alone- it will be dark and possibly scary for them.
    The 14 yr old no way- not because shes not responsible but two toddlers is a huge responsibility and putting that on one 14 yr old is asking too much. Maybe see if she has a friend or even her mum to come over until both kids are asleep. OR pay a professional mature babysitter to come and babysit all kids at ur house

    Umm, yeah I don't think I can be compared to the dropkick in that story. Anyway, we went and all is well. The 14 year olds mum who we are friends with, was with her for a while. The little ones were sound asleep before we went. My neighbor ended up going home at half time anyway since she is pregnant and was tired. My boys were completely fine, I called every 20 minutes and they were just watching tv. So, we had a great time and all was well.

    Glad you had a good night
    FWIW I was babysitting at 14, and in your situation with her mother nearby I would not have a problem with it.

    I'm glad you had a good night. I don't see the issue with having a 14yo stay in the house with sleeping toddlers with her mum next door. If she had to feed them, bath them and put them to bed it might be a problem but her parents were just metres away really.
