Ivy & Bean Day Blog-a-Bration Week 4

And the count down to the 1st Annual International Ivy & Bean Day continues.  This week Chronicle Books is giving away a copy of Ivy & Bean Book 4: Take Care of the Babysitter to one lucky winner and a set of mini-note cards to 3 other winners. Click here to check out the Ivy & Bean official page.

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.
