I'm surprised you trusted her after that.

If this was me I'd have called the police and started legal proceedings already.

I hope she follows through, regardless.

Worst DC Parent

I was just curious, seems like many of us have had sooo many crazy parents - but who was your worst? What did he/she do to make it to the #1 position?

Should make for some entertaining reading >_<

Correct, stupid, but correct.

For this reason alone I don't do pools, mostly because of the drought - I can't justify dumping an entire pool. It's a sprinkler, or water table here.

For example, today after 40 minutes she decided to sing loudly (and I'm even running white noise) and woke everyone in the room. So other kids who fell asleep immediately got woken the 40 minute mark.
