At this time of year, there are two things that you often fine floating around the blogosphere in abundance. Tributes to Moms, and self-depricating Mom’s that tell “what horrible” mothers they are because this little incident, or because they don’t do something that is “ideal” based on some standard written by somebody, somewhere in an abstract bubble.
Well, in order to make the Mom’s that come by here feel a bit better about whatever guilt they may harbor for some reason or another, I present to you, the list of mothers you are guaranteed to be better than. Just thing how lucky your child is to have YOU as their mother rather than these folks.
Mother arrested for throwing her 4-year-old daughter out of a car – beside the charges of injury to a child, the mother was also arrested for felony DWI. Anybody surprised?
Mother arrested in son’s death ruled incompetent to stand trial – Some people say they are crazy. Unfortunately, those that really are don’t tell anybody.
Houston Mother Arrested for Infant’s Death – What is it that makes a person think “My child is crying incessantly. Shaking it until it stops crying is a solution.”
Newborn baby found in dumpster; Mother arrested – There is nothing that can make me have compassion for somebody that can throw their newborn baby in the trash. Yes, I understand that their are emotional and hormonal problems that can occur, but unless you give birth alone in an ally somewhere, doesn’t anybody around you notice anything odd?
Mother arrested after giving prescription drugs to kids – You want to kill yourself. Fine. Why do you feel the need to take out the kids with you.
So, when you really get down to it… you kids are pretty lucky by comparison, aren’t they? On the other side… I am feeling more appreciative of my Mom right about now.
