Claudia's baby cousin is finally here! She's definitely the cutest, sweetest baby ever born. And Claud can't do enough for her.

There is just one pro ...more

claudia is chillaxin' home alone when she gets the call she's been waiting for: her aunt peaches is in labor! that was quick, huh? didn't peaches just have a miscarriage like three months ago? how is she at-term with a new pregnancy already? anyway, despite having been a professional babysitter for the last seventeen years & an accredited infant care specialist, claudia does not realize that birth usually takes a while. she runs out to the garage when her family gets home & demands that ...more

in this installment of “thirteen-year-olds are self-absorbed but not self-aware” by ghostwriter Peter Lerangis, claudia’s aunt peaches finally has a baby. she lost her last baby (see Claudia and Crazy Peaches), so everyone in the family is EXTRA excited for this one. claudia goes a bit overboard, though. the baby is named lynn, after her middle name, and claud is named the godmother. she believes this means it’s her responsibility to constantly be at peaches and russ’s house, giving “helpful” li ...more

Claudia non si accorge di essere una rompipalle.

Claudia doesn't realize she's a pain in the ass.

Claudia's aunt Peaches finally has her long-awaited baby, and Claudia is honored to be named as the godmother. She goes into overdrive trying to help care for the baby, and ends up overstaying her welcome and horning into her aunt's family, giving too much advice, and generally being a nuisance. She is hurt when Peaches finally yells at her, but gets a taste of what Peaches must have been feeling when a classmate tries too hard to be friends with her on a school trip to Philadelphia.

I always found Claudia so annoying in this, and that feeling has only intensified with age. I had several younger cousins, and I can remember them all being born. I never, however, got so freaking stoked about any of them that I wanted to be around them all the time. Then again I wasn't particularly close to the aunts that were having them, so maybe that's the reason why? Who knows.

Anyway, it was always so weird to me She was seriously annoying in this, and it even made me feel sort of bad for

Even as a kid I thought it was crazy that Claudia would be so obsessed with her new baby cousin. At thirteen, I did find babies cute and would take any opportunity to play with them, but I wasn't that obsessed. (At eighteen, however, I often tease my boyfriend by cooing over every baby we see and pretending to be obsessed). Then again, there is no way that I would have been allowed to babysit at thirteen, but let's suspend reality for the sake of the BSC, shall we? I liked the parallels between ...more

Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the

LOVED the first half - Claudia's reaction to getting a cousin was too sweet for words and literally brought me to tears.

HATED the second half - seriously, Claudia was a pest and really should know better.

In which Caludia knows everything there is to know about babies. EVER.
Yet another read with thin characters. I really forgot how bad some of the later BSC books are. Claudia's aunt has her baby and Claudia is a pain in the neck about it.

I loved this book because of the Ant Peaches let Claudia be the godmother of Lynn. Also it was my ant's book so she wrote in the book for review.

Claudia has a thing for babies. And for side ponytails. Basically, if she aged normally like people have a tendency to do, she would have inevitably become a star on Teen Moms.
