For reference: The Pit is an area in our basement between the stairwell and a very nearby wall. There's just enough room for a lot of stuff and even a small child to fall into, but a total pain to retrieve things from. I don't remember what she lost, but apparently she was upset. Note that this is pretty much the epitome of "Katie Upset". You can understand why we're flummoxed by the boys' temper tantrums.
