In book 4, Bean's older sister Nancy is given the opportunity to babysit Bean and also Ivy who is invited to come over and play. As the older sister, I of course sympathize with Nancy. I remember watching my younger sister after school or for short periods of time. After reading Ivy & Bean Take Care of the Babysitter, I am so happy that the worse thing that my sister did was argue with me while my parents were gone.
So, that got me thinking? What was the worse thing that you did to a babysitter as a child or that happened to you as you were babysitting younger siblings? I was fortunate - probably the ickiest thing was cleaning up a shaving cream/tooth paste fight between siblings that I was watching.
