This is my favorite new site. I loved the Baby-sitter’s Club books so much. They were all I read for at least two or three years starting around 4th or 5th grade. I had BSC everything. Posters all over my room, the calendar, the game. I even went all OCD and starting keeping an inventory of all my books and when I read them. I don’t remember what number I was up to when I stopped, but it was up there.
My favorite character was Stacy. I would have given anything to be Stacy. But I also liked Mary Anne since she was pretty much like me. It’s so funny to read that website, though, because Stacy is SUCH a bitch. I never once saw that. But, man, she really is a snobby bitch.
Even though I don’t really like kids, I started my own Baby-sitter’s Club (I think I was the only member, though. I was friends with a couple of girls in my neighborhood, but I don’t remember them being part of the club). I put up posters at our neighborhood pool and everything. I even made a Kid Kit (basically a big bag of toys and games that you bring with you). I remember I regularly babysat for two little girls that I actually really liked but I don’t think there were any other little kids in the neighborhood.
I stopped reading BSC books sometime after we moved to Tennessee and I started 7th grade. I remember having an “I <3 the bsc" pin on my bookbag and one of classmates noticed it made some comment about them being baby books or something like that. i think probably stopped reading that day. ahh, peer pressure. i still tried babysitting a few more times that's when realized i'm not really kid person. last job remember going to was for little boy had read him bed time story, which in itself would have been fine. but sore throat hurting out loud. just needed freaking glass water. no idea why didn't go get one, dumb. anyway, voice scared because they never asked me back. after started pet-sitting instead, liked much better. cats dogs are simpler than children. my digital cable has hbo showtime demand you can browse all movies showing watch whenever want. so day months ago, uber bored looking lo behold baby-sitter's club movie. movie way time, saw it. kind wanted to, but, alas, too uncool (sigh). curiosity got best watched man. crap-crappity-crap. larisa oleynik (of alex mack fame) completely miscast as dawn. glad missed first since pretty horrid. even look real slight step up from bsc videos used those were bad quality. anyway, can't home again, right? at least this site and laugh at my tween self.
