crazy mothers

Updated on March 25, 2013


My thoughts when I read this news:

A New Zealand mother learned an important "Child Care 101" lesson (we hope) on Saturday when worried folks gathered around her car and read the note she'd placed on her sleeping newborn, tucked into the car seat and locked inside. "My mum's in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything," the note read (it also listed the mom's cellphone number). Rather than calling the authorities, the bystanders felt sorry for the mother and called her instead.

Why the outpouring of sympathy of the mother of this child? What would have happened if the baby started choking and died in the car? What if her blanket somehow prevented her from breathing due to shaking and crying? Have we forgotten what extreme weather conditions can do to a baby left in a vehicle?

Here’s the thing. If you decide to become a parent you must endure the hard times and conditions associated with doing such. Leaving your baby locked in a vehicle while you go shopping is unacceptable. I can’t believe that more people didn’t call her and say: “Are you crazy lady?”

      Yeah, I would call this baby's mom and yell at her for being crazy with shopping. The baby might die innocently. This crazy thing should stop. Just bring long the baby while shopping. Or shop online instead.
