"Oversized diaper" made me think of one of those wacky adults that like to play baby. So I googled "Adult baby" and now I have to go stick a rusty steak knife through my eyeballs.

Poor kid - her parents named her Laylani. Since we know that crazy runs in the family it's almost inevitable she'll grow up to be a stripper or do porn.

Too bad she will probably get beat out by one of those pesky Florida grandmothers instead.

Ferguson indicated that a truck driver had dropped her and the child off at the gas station after her own vehicle broke down. The PT Cruiser was found at an Indian school just west of the gas station, Hegstrom said.

Maybe the diaper was just really, really full. I mean given how dumb most people are, I suspect when some folks see "Up to 20 pounds" on the side of the box, they may think that's how much crap the diaper can hold.

And seriously, if coffee treats that baby's bowels like it treats mine, that diaper is definitely going to be testing that 20-pound limit.

Lol, that's actually a common joke in my family:

"Whew! Somebody needs a change. I can smell that all the way over here!"

"Nah. The box says "up to 20 lbs" There's no way there's more than 3 or 4 pounds of shiat in there. We're good for a couple more hours at least."

I got an Amber Alert about this, which made my commute home more enjoyable as I scoured the 405 for a crazy grandma in a white PT Cruiser.

PunkTiger: A cappucino? Well, at least it wasn't an espresso. That would be fun.


I once made a chocolate-espresso cake to bring to my best friend, his wife, and their child. As we're slicing the cake up, I go to put a piece in front of the kid--who was maybe around a year old at that time. The biatch of a mother flips right the fark out and goes on a rampage about how children can't be given caffeine and this and that and fifty billion things. Meanwhile, her husband and I are just sitting there with the look of "Shut the hell up you overprotective biatch" on our faces. She went to the other side of the house a few minutes later to do laundry or something, and we gave the kid cake.

The secret is that it was espresso flavored. But goddamnit, that coont is a coont and will not be deterred from being a coont.

As a mom I don't get this. It's not like you handed the kid a 20 oz of Pepsi or a cup of coffee. Unless it's something she obviously should not have I try to offer my kid a little of whatever we are having. Flavors of life and all that jazz.

Nah. Compared to the mother of my godson, you're normal as hell.

I understand not giving kids stuff like soda and coffee. But it was cake, for chrissakes. Of course, this is the same "woman" who would take every cough or sniffle from her child as an indication that he was dying, which resulted in a lot of nights spent at the ER. The doctors, I assume, got to know her by first name. They might as well have just posted a sign outside the ER door that said "Kate, he's fine. Go home."

Wow. That's a new level of crazy for me.

Also ladies like that are the reason why when parents that have legit ill kids can never get doctors to take them seriously at first. I also love hearing how I am a monster for vaccinating my baby or letting her watch any kind of TV with us.

Female Comedian:
First kid, you're disinfecting everything, plugging all electric sockets, hiding all the glass stuff...by the time you're on your six kid it's like "HOW MANY TIMES DID I TELL YOU NOT TO RUN WITH THE CHAINSAW IN THE HOUSE?!!"


So I'm guessing first kid.
And especially when you don't have you're parents close by, and everything is new to you, you don't know the difference between what's normal and will pass, and what is actually dangerous and should be taken care of.

You can probably statistically prove the decline of emergency room visits per kid over time with a downwards sloping graph and everything.

I was a third kid. And you're pretty much right on point. My oldest brother was pretty closely-watched. Me? "Just don't go doing anything that can break bones. And get the f*ck outta the house."

So I'm guessing first kid.
And especially when you don't have you're parents close by, and everything is new to you, you don't know the difference between what's normal and will pass, and what is actually dangerous and should be taken care of.


The woman of whom I speak was living with her husband's family--his parents and his brother--and her parents were all of five minutes away. And still, almost every week and oftentimes a few times a week, they were in the ER. (And, just because I enjoy opening a can of worms, all of this was on Medicaid.)

You should definitely take your kids to the ER--but just because he/she/it coughed does not mean you grab the bug-out hospital bag and camp out with the stabbing victims for the night.

That somewhat reminds me of back when I was a Starbucks barista. A woman was ordering for herself and her kid (about 10). She ordered "vanilla blended thing," and I asked whether she wanted the vanilla creme (no espresso) or the vanilla Frappuccino (espresso). She freaked out: "Of course I don't want the COFFEE one! Are you STUPID?! I'm not giving him COFFEE!" Meanwhile, the kid is holding a Mountain Dew.

It was a dudette. She had to google "Amber Alert" to figure out what to do about a stolen baby, hence the obvious tag.
