TFA doesn't specify its sex, so yeah.

I woke up the other afternoon thinking I still had my son.  I tore my shiatty apartment apart.  Finally my heart sank and I walked outside in just my boxer shorts.  Thinking and saying please, please, please.  But after seeing the empty car..(it's TX, it's 90 here every day, imminent child car death right now), I realized I'm just an complete farking idiot and realized his mother and I had deviated from normal scheduling for something and that she had him.

I felt like a completely incompetent and completely competent parent both at the same time.  A strange feeling.  Then I realized how much money I had in my bank account and how cheap it would be to head on down to the gun store and remove myself from the gene pool as I would have obviously been worthless should that have happened.  After that I realized how exactly helicopter parents are actually formed.  Then again, nothing especially bad has happened yet. So what the hell do I know? He's 1 and a half.

Several years ago, Gene Weingarten's wrote an award-winning feature on parents who accidentally leave their children in cars to die in the heat. It's well worth a read.

Babies are already tender enough. Slow cooking them is wrong, as wrong as smothering them in ketchup.

mesmer242: karmachameleon: Skyrmion: Several years ago, Gene Weingarten's wrote an award-winning feature on parents who accidentally leave their children in cars to die in the heat. It's well worth a read.

He won a Pulitzer for that article.  It's a great - and heartbreaking - read.  You can see how it could happen to literally anyone.

Once when traveling cross-country, I left my 2 beloved cats in a boiling car, in just the same distracted way as the article describes. Just farking forgot they were there.  Fortunately I realized it 30 minutes later and it wasn't too late, but they were not happy campers when I finally came to their aid, and I imagine it was the longest 30 minutes of their little lives.

Man, did they get some lovin' that night.  Not so cool story bro, but there it is.  I really feel for these people.

Normally, I have nothing but pity for people who've forgotten their children in the car. Usually it's due to a change in schedule, or illness/sleep deprivation, and they thought the child was somewhere other than the car.

That wasn't the case with this article:

http://tbo.com/news/crime/authorities-sebring-mother-was-with-boyfri en d-as-child-died-in-hot-car-20130606/

The report said that before she got into her boyfriend's car, she turned the fan on in the car, but not the engine, with the result that the air was not cooled. Espinosa told authorities that while in the boyfriend's car she would look over into the other car at her daughter "and sometimes she was crying and sometimes she was playing with her sippy cup," the report said.

Basically, she was cheating on her husband and got into her boyfriend's car and left the kid in her own car. She watched her kid dying. There are no words.

/going to hug my kid now.


Death is too good for this woman.

/yes, I am advocating the killing of a human being, no I don't feel bad

If baby was dear to its mother it would not have been cooked alive.

Just saying.

Too bad it wasn't Texas. Just plant 150 bucks on the kid and call it good.

Central Floridians, take a tip from Casey Anthony: Make sure your baby is already dead before leaving her in a hot car.
