Not in Her Right Mind: Common Side Effect of Motherhood??

This story has got to be one of the saddest outcomes of being an overwhelmed mom I have ever heard.

"Feeling so beyond overwhelmed that you are a risk to your children? Beg for help.

Fuck, SCREAM FOR HELP from anybody and everybody of whom you come in contact. If not for yourself, for your children."

2 Year Old Pot Smoking Baby

Annnnnd in other news that makes a mother say some women should never be allowed to procreate, we have a mother giving her 2 year old a spliff:

Yes, she was teaching her 2 year old daughter how to smoke pot. She even recorded it on her cell phone and proudly showed it to friends. Luckily, someone turned her. in She now rightly faces 11 years in jail.

Before this there was 21 year old Melvin Blevins who forced a 2-year-old to smoke pot. She was charged with endangering a child. Then there was a 11 month old baby with a bong on Facebook. The mother, 19 years old, claimed it was a joke. Then there was the Denver, Colorado baby given formula with vodka. They claimed it was an accident. The baby ended up with a blood alcohol level of .36. Then in Syracuse, New York, a mom shotgunned the pot by blowing it straight into her 2 year old's mouth,

Just disgusting.

Not to sound like an old lady, but what the Hades is this world coming to??

WTF! Acid Attack One Big Freaking Hoax...

Otherwise known as now we know how they make my pups' squeaky toys.

Fail on School Day #4

What a morning...

There was a backpack zipper fail for kid #1.

It necessitated trying out three old backpacks none of which fit his existing binders, lunch, books, and supplies, before moving to a duffle bag against teen's protests.

He didn't even have the three more text books that will be issued today.

Nor the weight of all the papers that will accumulate over the year.

Nor the PE clothes and shoes he'll need in a few semesters.

Not even the swim backpack stuffed with gear he'll need for high school swim...


School fail for not having lockers which requires kids to carry everything with them.

Over 40 lb. backpack.

This kid is 5' 11", very fit from swimming, and weighs over 130 lbs.

Can you imagine the same load on a poor 5 foot nothing girl. I can't imagine why no one has sued the district yet for taking out their lockers a few years back. Studies have shown the damage to growing bodies is crazy.

Then what?

School Fail=Backpack Fail=1st missed bus of the year=One mom driving in pajamas and crazy hair to get kid #1 to school with minutes to spare.

This equalled one super stressed kid worried about looking ridiculous carrying a duffle AND getting in trouble for being tardy.

Quite an auspicious start to the day.

Luckily, he calmed down a bit in the car...

Domino effect?

This unscheduled shuttle then equaled missing kid #2 departure.


Luckily, despite being used to me helping her gild the lily, she glossed, she curled, and she made her bus.

Better yet, the earnest request that kid #3 made when I got home.

"Mom, can I modify my bike helmet to fit my mohawk?"

Yep my typically late kid #3 now can legally ride his bike and has no bus to miss.

TIGI BedHead Hard Head Mohawk Gel 3.4 Ounces
...Only lots of time spent making his pretty awesome mohawk sufficiently upright and hardened, only to try to attempt a bike helmet. Heh!

Best: Finally starting the day with a smile.

Fashew! We made it through school day #4's departures.
