    Yep I wouldn't leave a 3 year old, mine would freak out if I weren't there.

    An almost 3 yr old in a bed - nup. He could get into lots of trouble in that 10 minute window completely unsupervised.

    I think it makes more sense for your eldest to walk up the driveway alone than to leave the youngest alone.
    He isn't allowed to, because he is in kindy he needs to be met at the bus stop.

    It depends - at home our bus stops at the end of the driveway but our driveway is over a kilometre long so I always wake the sleeper - but 50m away, if he'd not been sleeping long it'd be less likely that he'd wake up so I'd be tempted to leave him snoozing, if he'd been sleeping a while, I'd wake him up.
    Do you know the bus driver? Ours is pretty good in that if you aren't waiting at the end of the driveway she'll come up to the house and one of the older kids will walk the kids up to the door and check that someone is home - that's been handy on a couple of occasions when I've been stuck.

    What did I do? I left him asleep and he was still asleep when I got home. We have a lovely bus driver (he drove when dh was at school) who would put him off the bus if he could see me at the top of the drive but ds1 has a heavy bag a lot of the time and can't ride with it on.

    The way I see it is that it's no different to going outside to hang washing or walk up to the shearing shed - both of which I'll leave the kids in the house to do.
