We all know that one person who's a bit of a pushover, always saying yes to helping others. But what happens when their more assertive sibling is left in charge of a spoiled 9-year-old? A clash of personalities, that's what! The story starts with two sisters, one sweet and the other more no-nonsense, living together. The sweet sister often babysits her friend's child for free, but when she's unexpectedly away, the no-nonsense sibling steps in... with a twist. 😅🍴
