Below, Rosa Feddersen watches as her 15 month old granddaughter Nora Thiel plays dress up in her home near Middletown, Pa Friday December 2, 2011. Rosa and her husband Craig bought their dream retirement home on a lake in Oklahoma City five years ago but sold it and moved to Middletown, PA to help with their granddaughter instead. Their daughter and son-in-law are both surgical fellows, and it’s not uncommon for her to watch Nora 70 hours a week.
