Charlotte's Baking Disaster
After her disastrous stint as a nurse in Susan Pulls the Strings, Charlotte tries her hand at cooking in the ensuing short story, The Wilsons Won't Mind. The results are less than successful and her career as a baker is short-lived. Charlotte's crazes, a characteristic she shares to a certain degree with Aunt Lucy, are a running gag in the series. She goes from nursing to cooking to collecting china and then to archaeology before she finally settles on art as her chosen career.
