No, not an idiot... A genius! She obviously knew her son had that cut on his face and hired a babysitter to watch him... When she came back she didn't want to pay so she blamed it on the sitter. And now we are here. How smart!

In all serious though, that was rude of her. You never really know what stories comes from babysitting i guess!

maybe not so much. I read this as the Mother wanting free child care. So she picked something that, even if the OP was very very diligent, could have happened. Children run in to things often.
So, I read it as the Mom seeing the mark before and knowing she could blame the babysitter for it later... thereby getting free child care

While the mother has the absolute right to fire the babysitter, she has no right to refuse payment for services rendered. You did the work, she Must pay up.
This is a case for small case court. You can even ask for punitive damages. You might even get them.

Next time you should point out anything like that before the parent leaves.
" I noticed Timmy has a cut on his face; how did he get it and do I need to apply any Neosporin?"

#21, when you rent a car, you really should walk around it before you take it with the rental agent and point out existing damage, otherwise you'll get blamed for it and have to pay.

The OP should have done a walk-around on the kid before the mom left.

#46, no problem. You have to be 25 to rent a car in most places, so younger people can't be expected to know that. Just listen to the wisdom of the friendly, ol' silverbacks and you'll be ready when you achieve that milestone.
