Hildy lived with her parents and sister, Francesca, in the country. Hildy's Mama had a little sister whom they had nicknamed Tati. She lived in the city with her husband Bennett and their baby Ollie. Hildy called her Uncle Bennet Be Bop. It was her nickname for him. Francesca could only call Baby Ollie Oyyie. Hildy and Francesca enjoyed their times with Uncle Be Bop, Tati, and Baby Oyyie. They visited each other very often.
One day Uncle Be Bop, Tati, and Baby Oyyie came to visit them in the country. Hildy and Francesca wanted to take Baby Oyyie out to play with them. Uncle Be Bop and Tati took him out and put him on a big blanket. They sang together and clapped hands together. Hildy and Francesca wanted to carry Oyyie and Tati told them that carrying Oyyie was not like singing or clapping hands together. He was little and would get hurt if they dropped him. Suddenly Hildy remembered Mimi's strategy. What was it?
