With some misgivings, we left a young babysitter in charge
of our three energetic youngsters.

When we returned a few hours later, she was sitting alone
watching TV.

I went to check on the children and found them in our narrow
hallway. By bracing their arms and legs against the walls,
two of them had climbed up to the ceiling.

"The babysitter taught us how," they said gleefully.

The sitter joined me, her face a deep red. "Since they had
me climbing the walls, I figured they might as well be too,"
she stammered.

We kept the same girl for the next two years.

Received from Thomas Ellsworth.

My brother used to climb the walls like this when he was younger!
