Young Folks' Home
With an up all-night, every-night baby, a thought has come to mind. Our daughter has a grandmother on one side and a grandfather on the other side who are night owls. I have heard many other senior citizens complaining that they can not sleep at night. Why not pair up sleepless seniors and infants to spend nights together to give exhausted parents a respite? I know Sherry and Sonny would be awake anyway and would love to watch the baby. I just bet other grandparents are similarly positioned. In families that are not geographically close, perhaps seasoned citizens, who are not blood relations but who love children, might volunteer to help.
