As a parent to a young kid, nights out are pretty rare. But every now and then, my daughter's "Auntie Ellen" will throw us a bone and watch our daughter overnight so we can hit the town. We're very grateful, of course, but more often than not, our daughter returns home in full-on crazy mode. We can never be entirely sure the reasons - apparently, much like the Las Vegas ads, "What Happens at Auntie Ellen's, Stays at Auntie Ellens" - but we suspect the crazies were brought on by free-flowing sugar binges and a very late bedtime.
Luckily, sugar highs and sleep deprivation in a kid whose childcare was "outsourced" to one of her favorite aunts are pretty easy to remedy. The same cannot be said, however, for faulty software builds that were outsourced to an offshore team.
