Storyline

What Betty Jo wants more than anything is to be able to buy her friend Willie's motorized bicycle. Kate allows her to do so only if she is able to come up with the money, which may not be that easy for Betty Jo. After placing a job wanted ad in the World Guardian (which she could only pay for by dusting Sam's store in exchange), Betty Jo does get a babysitting offer only on the condition that Kate is around to supervise, to which Kate reluctantly agrees. With Kate doing much of the work, Betty Jo makes it through the babysitting job. The result is that many other babysitting offers and many other babies come out of the woodwork. Unfortunately for Betty Jo and the the rest of the family, the jobs are all for the same night and under the same condition of Kate supervising. Despite all the help provided by Kate and ultimately Bobbie Jo and Uncle Jo on these jobs, Betty Jo has to come to a decision if there are more important things in her life than the motorbike.
