BACK IN THE DAY

If you are of my generation or even the next I encourage you to do a field trip to Bye Bye Baby or a similar store.

Notice first the selection of so much, when back in the day the choices were so limited as were the colors. It reminds me of Henry Ford's statement that you can have any color car you want as long as it is black!

Notice the price tags on mercedes-esque strollers, car seats, cribs and the like. How's $2000 for a crib and chest of drawers or $400 for a car seat or $1000+ for a stroller. Even the smaller stuff is silly money.

The choices are unlimited as are the prices. I don't think i could have afforded children in today's world. Glad we had them when we did.

New parents have so many more challenges. Then again 47% don't pay taxes according to Mitt, so i guess they can afford the hit! NOT!

I really try to stay away from politics, but i think both parties are so far removed from day to day realities that they haven't a clue.

Clearly,  cost and simplicity have been lost, and i am not so sure that is such a good thing because back in the day...........costs correlated with income and made more sense.


Bye for Now.
