Poor kid must have really been making a flap.

/sorry
//no really
 
2013-05-01 08:01:52 PM  
must've been all that violent gesturing.
 
2013-05-01 08:02:20 PM

2013-05-01 08:02:41 PM  
WHAT?
 
2013-05-01 08:03:53 PM  
There must have been signs of abuse.

I don't see what you did there, subby.

I'm not saying it's ok to beat your crying baby to death...

but I understand
 
2013-05-01 08:11:29 PM  
The crying baby wouldn't keep waking them up in the middle of the night, at least.
 
2013-05-01 08:11:34 PM  
Statement to the police was: "Let me be honest ann frank with you about what happened."
/aisle seat.
 
2013-05-01 08:12:57 PM  
Someone say something?
 
2013-05-01 08:13:15 PM  
The poor kid probably didn't understand what his parents meant when they said MMMPH OORG BURR MMMP BER DER MMMPHY PLUUMP
 
2013-05-01 08:13:42 PM  
I laughed way harder at that headline than was appropriate.

Curse you, subby.
 
2013-05-01 08:13:56 PM  
Hmmm...that blows that hypothesis.  I always figured that the best thing a new parent could get would be noise-cancelling headphones.  Since a baby isn't really going anywhere, and there very little of what makes them cry is a real emergency, the stress level would seem to be generated entirely by the noise its making.  Get rid of the noise, get rid of the stress.

Hmm..back to the drawing board.

A deaf Texas couple have been charged in the beating death of their 5-month-old daughter who was allegedly killed after an argument about who would care for the crying infant.

Clearly, these are two proactive go-getters who know how to put their disagreements on the backburner and synergize to attack the problem issue with bleeding edge commitment.  Promote them, Smithers.
 
2013-05-01 08:15:27 PM  
I hate to hear stories like this.
 
2013-05-01 08:15:28 PM  
Thanks for the TF.

/though I secretly hate it ;)
 
2013-05-01 08:15:38 PM  
I knew this deaf couple.
When ever they'd get in a fight
He'd turn out the light

Almost the same way Helen Keller killed the Lindbergh baby.
 
2013-05-01 08:17:31 PM  
Nobody tell Ann Frank!

Those parents can't hear stories at all!
 
2013-05-01 08:19:18 PM  
Bet they wish they'd "accidentally" shot the infant - no charged would've been filed.
 
2013-05-01 08:23:18 PM  
The baby was only crying because she wasn't old enough to lend her parents a hand.
 
2013-05-01 08:23:19 PM  
"It was pretty bad, certainly something children shouldn't have to go through."

Thank god someone pointed this out.

Holy crap, this is late Darwinism in action! I hope that people should think first before deciding to breed. When the kid is born, it's too late to legally do anything about it.

Both parents are deaf and mute.


What kind of argument is that?

As a new dad who hasn't slept more than 3 continuous hours in the last 2.5 weeks, I've found that there were times where I wanted to off myself....but never my boy. And sweet Jews with Jesus does he hate being changed at night!

/it gets better right?
//hello? anyone?

Laugh and giggle when you change 'em.

Well it takes care of reading them Miranda rights.

my son is my buddy. he's my best bud. if I don't like what he's doing, it's ultimately my fault... so it's up to me to teach and lead.

it's hard work, but it's awesome. seeing him grow is awe inspiring.

/ and when he's a teenager, I will be the devil incarnate

FTFA: A deaf Texas couple have been charged in the beating death of their 5-month-old daughter who was allegedly killed after an argument about who would care for the crying infant.

Maybe they were both sick and tired of the other one not listening to what they had to say?

FTFA: "It's sort of been my understanding that they can somehow detect or feel these vibrations and stuff like that and you still have some hearing, but not something to where you can make out anything," Richardson Police Sgt. Kevin Perlich told ABCNews.com. "They could sense when the child was upset and crying."

"Anybody would know if a child was crying or not," Philadelphia Children's Hospital pediatrician Dr. Cindy Christian told ABCNews.com. There are the tears and the babies make faces, so there are visual cues to crying aside from the sound.


Upon hearing Dr. Christian's comment, Sgt. Perlich added, "Uh... Yeah. I guess they could have seen the baby crying, too. I just forgot to mention that."

Yes, and you will only reference these times as being "really tired" a few times when telling stories about the cool things your kid did at this age. The "tired" part of the stories will be a footnote.

For those that didn't click over to page two.


Police say the father told them that he was holding the baby with both hands around the torso and shaking the baby at around 12:30 a.m. He allegedly told police he "hit the back of the child's head on the kitchen counter at least three times," according to the report. He also allegedly struck the child's face, knocking her off the counter and onto the kitchen floor.


I'm secretly glad the child passed away after this attack.  My wife works at a center for special needs kids. I've met quite a few shaken babies. Death is better than what some of these kids have to go through for the rest of their lives.

Yes, it gets better. Eventually they go to college. The trick is to change all the locks so they don't move back in when they're done with that.

I'd love to have a child, except for the first 2-4 years or so.

Kaenneth: I'd love to have a child, except for the first 2-4 years or so.


There are an infinite number of 5+ year olds in need of a good home. Yes, an older child comes with challenges that a baby doesn't, but then again you don't have to potty train. So there's that.
