{ Here we go! }

One early summer morning, Betsy got a phone call from some family friends asking if she would be able to last minute babysit all day. The parents [Stan and Jan] had to rush out of town for a family emergency, so Betsy agreed to help them out! Little did she know, little Michael and Jane were absolute terrors...

When she got to the cute little white house with baby blue shutters, she got the scoop from Jan [the kids sounded like little angels!], and then they headed out the door. As soon as the door closed Michael turned to Betsy and said...


Happy Mingling!


  1. "I got new paintbrushes, wanna see 'em?" "Um, sure", said Betsy. As they walked down the hall towards the kitchen, she noticed Jane already filling up cups. Since Jane was only 3, she had a hard time keeping all the water IN the cups.
    Just as she walked over to help Jane keep the water in the sink, she heard a LOUD noise.

  2. Turning around, Betsy saw that the computer had been pushed off the desk and was now smashed on the tile floor. "What the.." she exclaimed as she turned back towards Jane who had an evil grin on her face, her brother Micheal was nowhere to be found.

    Suddenly he popped up from behind his sister and yelled..

  3. Whoops, almost forgot!

  4. ..."Oops! I made Daddy's computer fall!" Michael definitely wasn't sincerely sorry. In fact, he looked pretty pleased with himself & then ran down the hall toward the bedrooms. Betsy could hear him climb onto a bed & begin jumping up & down. "What have I gotten myself into?", thought Betsy! "This can't get worse! What am I supposed to do about this broken computer?!". As she walked over to the desk to try to salvage the laptop, she heard Jane quietly giggling from the kitchen...

    {Who ever knows where these stories will go! haha How fun!}

  5. Little Jane, sat in the floor of the kitchen, proudly admiring her handiwork. Someone had left peanut butter sitting on the table and Jane had painted the kitchen cabinets with it. Betsy picked up Jane and began to wash off her hands when...

  6. she heard a loud THUMP and then a cry from the other room. She rushed to the bedroom, peanut butter covered Jane under her arm. When she got there she couldn't believe her eyes...

  7. ...Michael had bounced off the bad and smacked his little noggin on the floor. He was okay, but the family dog, Hannah, was acting very bizarre. Then, a tiny little yelp came out from under the bed.

    "PUPPIES?!? WTF am I going to do now?!" thought Betsy. Betsy tried to remember what her aunt did when her aunt's dog had puppies three summer's ago. She just couldn't remember. "That's okay," thought Betsy as she tried to breathe slowly, "I'll just google it!" Betsy ran back toward the computer when she remembered what Michael had done. Just as Betsy was about to start crying out of sheer desperation, the doorbell rang.

    "What now," sighed Betsy. "Maybe their parents forgot something and came back!" With a little bit of hope, she opened the front door. Looking up at her were three children with devilish smiles. The oldest looking one spoke,"Micheal and Jane invited us over. Can we come in?" Befroe they waited for an answer, they ran past Betsy into the house. She turned around just in time to see...

  10. of the puppies pooping on the carpet! "STOP!" Betsy immediately yelled, but it was too late, and the puppy was already scampering off to hide in the corner.

    Knowing she had little time to get it cleaned up before it stained the carpet, she ran to the kitchen to find the proper cleaning supplies, only to realize that there were five small children all running around the house, yet she heard NOTHING. Knowing this could only mean horrific things, she immediately dropped the cleaning supplies only to realize... :)

  11. "Look here lady! We are known for our reputation in the neighbor hood. So if you would like to continue on in these parts, you better tell "THE" parents how good we were, regardless of how we act!" Betsey couldn't believe what she had just heard. Could this really be? A 7 year monster in the body of a harmless looking child? Betsey then replied "I am sure that we are going to-" but she was intertupted by Janes' screech as she mattress slides down the main staircase, "WEEEEEEEEEE!" "Oh My God!" yells Betsey, as she.........

    I could go on and on but I will leave the rest up to your imaginations! Fun thing you have going on here!

  12. dashed to the bottom of the staircase to catch Jane while tripping over three boys who were piled on the floor giggling after their own slide down the staircase. "That's IT! Betsy yelled!"

    "I've had it up to here... If you are going to destroy this house, then I at least get to ride down the stairs on the mattress one time before I'm fired." She jumped on the mattress and started down the stairs when....

  14. Suddenly the phone started blasting it's ring tone. Betsy continued sliding down the staircase in all her glory as the kids stared at her blankly dumbfounded by this act, but then continued cheering her on. The one continued to ring off the hook, so Betsy finally ran to retrieve it.
    "Hello, " she blurted out while catching her breath.
    "Hello," said a deep yet gently voice.
    "Who is calling?" asked Betsy when she could not recognize the mysterious Mans voice.
    "Betsy there's no time to explain. There is something you need to know about one of the kids in that house!"
