Bad Mama

I wish I hadn’t

If you live in the Madison area, and you see a news report about a woman charged with abusing a child she was babysitting, and you think you’ll read or watch it out of idle curiousity, I am here to tell you DON’T DO IT.  Especially if you have any cause to let your child out of your sight in the near future, even if it is into the care of her adoring grandmother. Because you may not be able to do it, and you will have a nearly overwhelming urge to track this woman down and do to her what she did to the kid and then some. Trust me, it was bad and she should go to jail for a very, very long time and you should probably go hug your kid or other loved ones anyway.

On a happier note, my dad got out of the hospital today. He is going to short-term rehab, and his prognosis is fairly good. At least, if he follows his healthcare plan, which he was decidedly not doing before this happened. That’s a pretty big “if” in this case, but I have to say his attitude towards his own mortality has changed rather dramatically, so I have hope. We still had an argument that involved me saying, “Well, you’ve obviously done so well not listening to your doctor. Perhaps you ought to consider that they might actually know what the hell they are talking about”, but we’ve definitely made progress. 

Can you imagine where on Earth his granddaughter got her stubborness?
