You may or may not have heard the news story that has been getting lots of attention about the mother who sprayed off her kid in a car wash. For those that haven't- a mother was caught on video spraying down her 2 1/2 year old in a car wash. The mom says it was because the child was throwing a tantrum, and claims she didn't have it on full blast or anything. That she was just using it to get her attention. Well, the child was taken away and is living with her grandmother and the mom has been charged with felony child abuse.
Now, I'm not necessarily defending the mom or anything, but watch this commentary on CNN about the case: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/crime/2008/03/10/hostin.car.wash.cnn
Now, am I the only one that it strikes as absolutely ludicrous that the one chick says it shows premeditation because the mom had extra clothes in the car for the kid? That the fact she put her back in dry clothes afterwards showed she planned the whole thing? Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!?!?
Ok, then I guess all of us parents out there carrying around an extra set of clothes in our cars for our small children are premeditating doing the same thing. I mean, wth?
