While mom heads out, Nana is left with the children and a schedule and instructions to follow. However, this fun-loving grandmother doesn’t quite adhere to the instructions, but her and the kids sure have a great time.
Just before the mother returns, Nana and the kids make a batch of peeny butter fudge, a secret family recipe. Mother returns and sees the huge mess that Nana and the kids made. However, before she can begin to reprimand, she catches a whiff of the delicious peeny butter fudge and remembers making it herself as a child.
