    I would just call and ask what their favorite topping is. (If there is a Papa Murphy's Pizza near you, I would go with that!)

    I would make sure the fridge and pantry are FULL or leave about $20 for takeout.

    Every time I babysat and it was over dinner, the family left a frozen pizza. Their oldest son was old enough to eat that, so we shared it.

    I have never been left money for dinner, and I wouldn't leave it for someone else.

    I dont think I was ever bought dinner when I babysat, usually they said help yourself to fridge and cupboards. Otherwise your paying at least double to have them babysit....

    I usually just eat what the kids eat. I wouldn't want to order pizza. But I'm shy and always make DH order over the phone.

    I have always said that if they find it, they can eat it. Food is the one thing that I have plenty of so if they eat it wont break us.

    I don't recall being fed either. I was always offered to eat whatever was in the house.

    When my older kids were younger and we'd have a babysitter I'd make dinner for both kids and her and have it hot when she got there. I'd probably do the same thing now if I was to have a sitter.
