Now my married daughter would never leave Ricki as a REAL babysitter for her 10 month old nephew, but she does call her up to play with my grandson when my daughter needs a break from the baby’s kvetching.

My daughter laughed, and smiled. “Yes, when he is driving me nuts, I call Ricki up to our room, and she plays with him non-stop. Within half an hour she will tire him out, and he’ll fall asleep like a log…..”
