Cautionary Tales – the Second

CeliaToday’s Cautionary Tale concerns a problem that all loving parents will face sooner than later.  Hoffman writes of it in the mid-nineteenth century, and young mothers of my acquaintance tell me nothing much has changed.

I offer my best wishes to Celia the Cry-Baby and anyone who can relate.
