An executive mum has to work through the half-term holidays, so big brother J.J. babysits his little sister for the week. The siblings have fun together doing different things each day. Sometimes little sister is an embrassment but J.J. never forgets his responsibilities. On the last day they decide to paint a mural on the garden shed. But when they're finishing, little sister has an accident and paint spills everywhere. Just then Mum arrives and is horrified by the mess... until she notices the mural. A warm family story.
