    and a harried nanny...
  • Wystan 5y

    Hey, she makes nine cents an hour -- she has no right to complain . . . .
  • Cassies grandma 5y

    That crib looks like the one I had, I was born in the late '40's. Sure wouldn't pass all the safety regs today.
  • Wystan 5y

    I was thinking the same thing. Mine was like that, but with wooden slats. Banned as a choking hazard nowadays -- some kids stuck their heads through the prison bars, but couldn't pull them out again.
