The implication was that none who had worked for her—and me—would be willing to return lo the job She hinted thai possibly I'd flml it more lo my liking to sit with the baby myself. "I'd love to," I agreed, "when I'm home, anyway. But I can't make any promises to stay home because sometimes I change my plnns on the spur of the moment I've got to be free to do that," said, annoyed at being on th< defensive, "But when I'm settlec Tor Ihc night, or la?heii to U washing machine. I'll he delightet to take care of Caroline." Betty got a new girl. She (iidn 1 Int. and she didn't have d;mcing j parties. But she must have had a • tapeworm. The refrigerator door ranged on the hour and on the [ hour like a faithful old clock. rhe sixlh or so time il bunged, 1 couldn't control myself. I took off 'or the kitchen, my kitchen. Standing by the sink, loaning over I so the juice wouldn't run down ler front, was the siller, eating a slice of watermelon. I opened and shut my mouth a few times, priming Ihe pump, before any words came. "Why are you eating out o( my refrigerator?" I asked. Tin hungry/ 1 she replied accusingly. "Didn'l Mrs. Morgan tell you what to have for your lunch?" "Sure, I ale thai." **This is my icebox. You're not supposed to be in my kitehr-n ,it iK-Iicn nor help themselves lo y food. "Oh. denr," she cried. "I don't relieve I'll ever be able lo find a sitter to suit you.

Surely there must be someone you can make imriersland thai thi.c two-family house now and that our hnlf is nnl for her lo make use of." "Well, I'll try," Belly said, "bul I'm about out of names." She found one more girl to put up with me—a child of about 13. She arrived alone, but within a mailer of minutes hnd spirited three liltle companions into the bas-cment. 1 saw them slink np the garden walk, piping all Ihc windows on thai side of the house, bul though they looked cautiously, they did not sro me behind a Ve- nelinn blind. Tlicy Up-toed down the basement stairs, quiet as mice The house began to rock on its foundation. I allowed four five tremors lo pass unnoted then proceeded lo the basement The children were making si much noise they didn't hear me a I called to them, and when 1 ctidn' Ilnd them in the laundry or sittinj room, I continued lo the bndroori where I discovered them all in lh< closet. They screamed at my un announced appearance. "Girls, whal are you up to?" wondered aloud how they had got the hook down. "Oh. we've been jumping (or il. Mazie," indicating a wiry child, "jumped the highest. She ranched il." Leaving out (he ethics of Uu-ir helping thiMn.selvos Vo things put up on lop shelves, I su^j'.rslrd they might have gol it mori- cosily nnd more (juicily by stand ing on a chair. "Oil. jumping's more fun?" they ni used. ~\N the days Ihnl Hetty did stay home and lake earn of the Lile Character herself, she had rou pi of other young mothers ami icir children to keep her cotu- nny. From every nook and cran- y they came—rooms over grocery lores, shack houses in backyards, olds downtown. Often they were heeling baby carriages piled with tp robes, pillows, books, sun-Ian il, bottles, diapers, and, n( course, he bitby. II was a plcnsiuil si o look out on: a large circle of oung mothers lying around snn- iing themselves, smoking, drink- ng cokes, occasionally jn by over to brown on the other moving it out of Ihe sun iltogelher. or changing it, or giv- it a bottle. It made our garden seem useful nnd worth the effort ;o keep il in order. 1 never had time to sit in il; il wa«= os much as 1 could manage to mow the lawn. 1 never decided whether Rob was loo heavy [or such light work, or vice versa, or just allergic lo work, period, lie CQKf 1941 IV MA ltRV|Cr IHC- T.
