First off, I bought the green one, and thank you for your votes. To be TOTALLY HONEST, I had already bought it, but wasn't sure if I had made the right choice, so I decided to ask for some help! I am glad you all concurred. :)
Now, on to my controversial post. DOES THIS WOMAN LOOK LIKE A CRIMINAL?
I don't like to watch the news. (Except for E news, of course) I think it is depressing (E-news can be depressing too... thanks Britney). Therefore, I don't read the news either. I pretty much get ALL my news from the MSN website when I log off my e-mail. I know, I know! You are probably disgusted and ashamed. I would be too, but if it is a matter that I need to be informed on, I do do some due diligence and check out "reliable" news sources.
Today I clicked on a link that said, "Mom faces trial for leaving kid in the car". My stomach just about dropped out and hit the floor. I mean, really????? TRIAL???? JAIL??????? I am sure you can guess by now that I have done this before... This woman was within eye shot of the car, and was assisting her two other kids with dumping money into the salvation army can and taking pictures (she must be a blogger). She was not far from her car (within eye shot) and when she got back two officers arrested her for child endangerment and put her in the back of the squad car with her children watching. Child services investigated and found no other problems with child abuse or mis-care of her children and now she is facing a year in prison if convicted. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Are they really considering putting the mother of 3 children in PRISON and leave them MOTHERLESS for a year??????
I am not going to site any particular instances of me doing this and I will not lie, it makes me nervous when I do it. I am not sure if I am nervous because of what I am doing, or because of being caught, but none the less, I have done it (only with them in eyeshot). HAVE YOU???
Your thoughts please. Do I need to reform? Or is this as crazy to you as it is to me???
PS- What ever happend to the people who left their sleeping toddler in the car while they were gambling at the Casino! I never heard of THEM being prosecuted!!!!
