I definitely would recommend living in Richmond after having lived in so many other places. Cause I think there are a lot of people that have only — I think the people who are the hardest on Richmond are people who have never lived anywhere else and they have this sort of glorified idea of what it’s like to live ‘somewhere else’ and I think having lived in all these other places I realize what’s so great about Richmond. You might have to try a little bit harder to find the things here, like it’s not just right in your face, you have to try harder but it’s all here.

Old school baby walker. This walker dates to the first half of the 18th century. In the Museum of Childhood.

They have one of these at the John Marshall House, although it’s less ornate. The tour guide said I was one of the only people to correctly guess what it was. My prize for that was the thrill of being the nerdiest history-loving mom in the great state of Virginia.
