A young girl was babysitting for the first time - beginning her shift shortly after supper and as the children were playing in front of the house.
At bedtime she sent the youngsters upstairs to bed and settled down to watch TV. One child kept creeping down the stairs but the young girl kept sending him back.
At 9 PM, the doorbell rang, it was the next-door neighbor Mrs. Brown, asking whether her son was there.
The babysitter brusquely replied, "No."
Just then a little head appeared over the banister and a voice shouted, "I'm here Mom but she won't let me go home."
