Wistful Wednesday : 1952

Me in 1952!
The Babee Tenda, a tip proof high chair play table on wheels. My Mother used it to corral me, I could play safely off of the drafty floor inside or outside out of the dirt and grass. It was an ingenious invention. I used it lots of times on my baby brother Jody, the straps that were used to buckle him in were all worn out..so I used a dish towel and tied him in..poor kid..trapped by his older sister! :)

  5. What a cute baby you were, Connie. I remember always tying my brothers and sisters to chairs with kitchen towels too.

  7. Gosh, looks just like the one I used to sit in when I was a baby back in 1947/1948.

  8. I have pictures of some stationary device that I was put in as a baby. I remember seeing a picture of my older brother in it too. I don't know where those pictures are. My mom lent it to a brother and his wife and she couldn't imagine why they hadn't returned it after they were done with it. She worried about that for years, as if she were going to have anymore children.
