And I will point out the character of my son, and what I am saying about the playpen and so on.
The motel was run by a young married couple, and I watched the woman come out and put her baby in the playpen.
They'd been standing for it ever since I could remember anything outside my own playpen, which, of course, hadn't been too long.
There was the bare necessities; there was no playpen or crib for the baby.
Then I bought at Montgomery Ward a playpen for about $11 for the kid.
I say it is not necessary for a young couple to have a playpen for a baby.
