Peace and Plenty by Sarah Ban Breathnach

I have a theory about feeling protected and prepared.  We assign money that job, and obviously it does it well.  When money isn't what we've got to exchange, however, we need the currency of ingenuity and planning.  Every day we need to be prepared in small ways as well as large, and every day we find new wants and needs that can be satisfied through our creativity and organization.

Ginnie's Baby-sitting Business by Catherine Woolley
That night Ginnie had trouble getting to sleep.  For the first time the magnitude of what she had blithely undertaken loomed large.  She recalled, suddenly, the trouble she had had with Tommy when Susan insisted on his being Mrs. Bobbin.  Suppose they all lay down on the attic floor and kicked and screamed?  They wouldn't listen long to a story.  And two babies in playpens in her room!  Would Geneva be willing to stay with those two?  That meant she would have six to handle herself.  Mother might come . . . but no, Mother said it was all up to her.
