Elizabeti tiene una nueva hermanita, así que ahora debe ayudar con el cuidado de Obedi, su hermano menor. Elizabeti sabe lo que hay que hacer. Ella ha cuidado a su "bebé", una muñeca de piedra llamada Eva, desde que Obedi era un bebé.

Pero cuidar a un niño de verdad no es tan fácil como cuidar a una muñeca de piedra. Elizabeti trata de barrer el piso, pero Obedi le jala el cabello. Elizabeti quita las piedritas del arroz, pero Obedi lo tira al suelo. Cuando Elizabeti va por agua, Obedi se mueve tanto que el pesado cántaro se le cae de la cabeza. Pobre Elizabeti. ¿Cómo podrá terminar sus quehaceres?
