When the head bookkeeper at his firm becomes a father, William Skinner (Bryant Washburn) gets baby fever. He and his wife Honey (Hazel Daly) both long for a child, and it isn't long before Honey is pregnant. They make excited plans for their son's arrival and his future, to the extent of picturing him as president of the United States. The big day comes, and William Skinner, Jr. turns out to be a girl. Skinner's great plans are upset, but he doesn't really care; he's just glad to have the kid. This movie was one of a series of simple little films about Skinner and his wife.
