If you leave your baby in a hot car you are a selfish pig and your child should be taken away from you. If you leave your child in the car it is because you are lazy, and stupid. Having a baby is a huge responsibility and a huge gift. I am thrilled that Georgia father is getting a murder charge for leaving his 22 month old in the 92 degree blazing sun ALL DAY. First of all I have a few questions. My kids never went to day care. I am lucky. But I imagine that if my child did go to day care all day and it was just a little baby I would call during the day a few times to check up on him. Do parents not do this? How could a mother let her husband who never drives the child to day care, drive him, and then never call to check up on him? Am I the only mother out there who would call to make sure my husband dropped off the kid? I know I would be like, Honey, how did the drop off go? Did you remember to give him this and that? So it is pretty obvious that these two pigs, the husband and wife wanted this child dead. I read an article last week where a mom blogged about how she is in a support group for mothers who left their child in the car and the child died. She is guilt ridden every day. And she wants forgiveness because people make mistakes. Uh, no. I am not forgiving you. I never left my kid in the car to die. I never left my baby in the bathtub to drown. I never left my kid at the mall. Am I a bettet parent? Uh, yes. And it takes special care to raise an infant to adulthood. Our society has become a society of moron mothers texting while their babies are running into the street. We are country so self absorbed that people are more interested in chatting on social media than talking to their own families in person. We are so careless that we disregard our little babies and just accept year after year dozens of parents killing their kids in an oven chamber. Every summer there are 39 deaths, of little babis who baked in their parents cars. And so this one man, this one example of this slob in Georgia, I hope will be a start of more parents getting charged with murder. It is murder! Take time to care for your children and remember that THEY COME FIRST NOT YOU! YOU ARE NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cooking on a budget
Until recently I took what we at for granted.
I went to the grocery store and bought what I wanted.
Now with the recession I am cutting back. I normally spend about $250 a week on groceries. I have a family of four. A big burly guy, a cute petite hottie mom, and two children. I think I can spend less on food. And that is my challenge.
Beginning this... [Read more >>]
Bagged salad full of it!
You might think that “prewashed” and “triple-washed” salad greens sold in plastic clamshells or bags are squeaky clean. But our recent tests found room for improvement.
No, we didn’t find pathogens such as E. coli O157:H7, listeria, or salmonella. With our small sample size — 208 containers representing 16 brands... [Read more >>]

Ice Cream Sundae Party!
For our summer staycation, I love inviting the children over for an ice cream party. Have them come in their bathing suits. Set up a folding table with sprinkles, marshmallows, and all the fun toppings you choose. Bring out the plastic bowls and the gallons of ice cream and let the children make their own sundays. Turn on the sprinklers after and let... [Read more >>]

That just broke my heart. I realize that this doesn’t offer total peace for you at the moment BUT …..what are WE doing wrong. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child just too bad the village does not accept that role anymore. They are suffering in silence like you. Because we no longer have that “universal front” in either... [Read more >>]
I just read your article about bullying and while I agree on most
points, I have to disagree with you about some others. I didn't see
the news story you saw,but I can tell you that it isn't always
possible to move a child to another school. Our daughter was harassed
in one school she went to for being gay. We were living in a small
town on the... [Read more >>]

Rules for staying healthy
Let’s be realistic. It really stinks to get in shape. It’s easier to be a chubbette. I would love to eat a beef taco right now with french fries.
