At the time Iris was visiting and Grandma Roth was living with us, Iris had a two year old girl named Paula. We wanted to go to town without taking Paula along, so Iris asked Grandma Roth to baby sit. At this time she was around 90 years old.
Paula was a real handful so we didn’t know how it would work out. However much to Iris’s amazement Paula was sitting in the swing not moving. She wouldn’t get out till Grandma said she could. Grandma’s secret? She had tied a piece of sewing thread across the swing and told Paula she couldn’t move. It worked! What an amazing old woman.
