When Bessie comes to deliver taffy to Gwen's house, she finds out that Gwen is babysitting her five rowdy little brothers. Bessie would love to babysit. Portia and Gwen trick Bessie and Penny into babysitting by saying there's a babysitting badge. Portia pushes the taffy cart then went to the mall.
Bessie thinks that it's going to be easy, but she soon realizes that babysitting is hard work after she loses one of the kids. Bessie and Penny scramble to find Gwen's youngest brother, a baby, all around San Francisco. In her and Penny's absences, Happy takes over, and in an unexpected twist grows to love the kids, playing Jenga and helping them with math homework.
After much running around, Bessie convinces Gwen's baby brother to come to her using an angry voice. A cart rings the bell with the baby, Happy comes and takes the baby, but closes on Bessie and Penny. Portia and Gwen come and tell Bessie and Penny that there is no babysitting badge.
