Family law attorneys call it a first: a babysitter winning custody of a child. Now the mother's lawyer has won a rehearing -- just in time for the holidays. In an emergency hearing, the same judge who last month gave a babysitter custody of a 2-year-old boy vacated the guardianship order at the request of the child's parents. The toddler will stay with the babysitter pending a Jan. 20 status hearing, aside from Thanksgiving and Christmas stays with his parents and grandmother.
