Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Ep 38 Jess Cries & Almost Dies

Baby-Sitters Club #12 Kristy and the Snobs The episode Jess has been dreading the most! CW for dog death. This is an EMOTIONAL one, y’all! This one mainly deals with the decline of Kristy’s collie, Louie, and we frankly can not handle that. But at least Stacey really weirds some bratty kids out, and then there are other baby-sitting chapters that are entirely unnecessary. BUT MAINLY ANIMAL SADZ. We were too emotional to remember to do our current reads (apologies)…

Ep 35 Ghost Fight!

We begin this week by going slightly off the rails into baby showers and Chik-Fil-A. But we get back on track for Christina’s Ghost by Betty Ren Wright, our most controversial book yet! At least between the two of us. In the book we deal with grumpy uncles, big old houses, missing stamps, and scary ghosts. As it turns out, Steven gets pretty mad about ghosts!
