Mama and the Baby!
9 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Vint and Naomi dream of having a baby of their own but when it doesn't happen. They consider adoption which is where Mama Harper comes in as the primary caretaker. That's all Mama wants another face to wash and clean and feed in her house. The adoption agency wants to interview Mothe Harper with a psychiatrist which does not go considerably well at all for Vint and Naomi but still it's funny and humorous to watch Mama Harper with a psychiatrist being so defensive for the way that she raised all her children including Vint. I would have liked her to talk about her other daughters, Ellen, and Eunice but that's okay. Mama can make fur fly in the room with her sassy humor and sharp-tongued wit. I'll never understand why Vicki Lawrence didn't get an Emmy for this role and I never will.
