I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew.
I don’t think I can make it in this club. There’s a lot of books.
I have very tiny eyes. And an even smaller vocabulary.
The BabySitter Club Series by Ann M. Martin has been one of the Blond Duck’s favorites since she was small. She devoured not only the Babysitter’s Club and it’s spin-off Karen, but even Ann M. Martin’s biography.
Considering the Blond Duck read most of the Babysitter’s Club before she could actually babysit, she gained a lot of useful tips and tricks. Her favorite character was Dawn, even though she didn’t understand her penchant for health food. Carob? Tofu?
That doesn’t sound like pie.
The Blond Duck’s second favorite was Mallory. Even though Mallory was the oldest of 8 children and the Blond Duck only has Danielle, Mallory was a shy bookworm who loved to read and write and wanted to be a children’s book author. Her best friend was Jesse, a ballerina. She wasn’t allowed to get her ears pierced until 9 while the Blond Duck wasn’t allowed until 10. Mallory was very self conscious about her glasses and braces (the Blond Duck had braces and still wears glasses.)
I can’t imagine what they had in common.
There was even a movie about the series.
To celebrate the return to school and the fact that the only thing the Blond Duck babysits is other stuffed animals, I demanded she make macaroni and cheese, the only dish she ever made when she babysat.
But not the blue box. I demanded she make Trisha Yearwood’s slow cooked macaroni and cheese.
Creamy. Cheesy. Delicious.
Just what I need to read the whole series.
