1"Crazy"Kelly ParkCaryn LucasMarch 19, 2021 (2021-03-19)
The country singer Bailey who has a problem with her car on her aimless way, knocks on a door of a family with a farm to get some help but instead she quickly becomes their tenth nanny without having any experiences. The 5 kids and their father Beau lost their mother and wife 2 years ago, that's why they need her. Beau has a new girlfriend, Summer, who seems to be jealous of the beauty of Bailey and wants her to go again but doesn't really say it out loud directly. When a storm is coming they get in the cellar where Bailey starts to tell the story of how her singing partner and boyfriend left her for another singing partner. When the storm got worse they started singing but Bailey took the old guitar of the mother which makes Cassidy, one of the daughters of Beau, really sad and she goes out into the storm in the barn. Bailey follows her and helps her back while risking her life because the barn breaks more and more. At the end of the episode, although Cassidy didn't like Bailey at first, she now loves her and Bailey becomes or stays the official nanny.
