Rent a granny -- it's the new housekeeping and maid service that's expanding nationwide. "Rent-a-Grandma" offers carefully screened women, age 50 and over, to either watch your kids, do some housekeeping, cook for you, or simply watch your pets.

The company's founder says women 50 or older provide better care than other domestic caretakers because of their life experience. He also adds that they won't text or tweet while they're watching your kids.
