Mrs. Cheplin is the mother of Dana and Adam Cheplin. She works as a freelance photographer and a book designer. She recently took a job as an art director for a magazine in Stamford. She is divorced from her husband, who lives in Chicago.
She pays almost twice as much as other sitting clients pay. She leaves Stacey a list of long chores & doesn't appreciate what Stacey does and only looks to find fault. In the end, Stacey calls and tells her that she won't be the Cheplins' regular babysitter anymore.
