When you're taking care of kids, you have to make sure they're safely occupied before doing anything for yourself. If you need to go to the bathroom, get the kids busy with some kind of safe activity in their rooms first. I have a toddler and a newborn, I learned the hard way.
I have a feeling you won't be babysitting for this family again in a very long time.. And don't expect too much money on this one ! By the way, you deserve it. You should have made sure the kids were busy doing something else before leaving for 10 minutes ! ;)
this could actually happen in seconds.. one time I went pee which took like one min to go and wash my hands and get out.. in that time the kids i was watching (that were busy watching a movie they love) noticed i wasn't visible, unlocked the front door, left the apartment, walked down the 3 flights of stairs, and down the block.. they were a 2 yr old and 3 yr old.. so lesson learned.. you CANT do ANYTHING EVER when watching kids. don't even try.
