A Father Built A Crib For His Baby 30 Years Ago. Wait ‘Til You See What The Baby Did When He Grew Up.
Thirty years ago, a Polish immigrant and his wife were expecting their first child. They didn’t have jobs and had to make the best with what they had. Because they couldn’t afford to buy a brand new crib from a store, the man built one by hand himself.
That baby grew up to start a family of his own and even though he had the money to buy a new crib from the store, he decided to build the very same crib just like his father did. User Leesburgcapsfan posted the story of how he made the crib for his baby daughter on Reddit.
This is my dad. 30 years ago, he built this bassinet for me with a couple pieces of pine and a hand saw. Fresh off the boat from Poland, it’s all he could afford.
