Is the US becoming zombie central? Are you putting push-pins on a
map to see if the next attack could be at a neighborhood near you? First we had the face eating zombie in Florida and next the Maryland attack where the roommate was killed and his heart and brains were eaten. But things are getting even weirder. In Los Angeles a women was walking down the street, minding her own business pushing her 4-month old son in a stroller when a homeless women took the baby out of the stroller and began swinging the baby against a pole.
Police reports state that she was trying to break off his arm so she could eat it! Thankfully the baby is fine and the zombie woman is in police custody. One thing all three of these cases have in common is drugs. These stories will be helpful when you explain the dangers of drugs to your children. Hopefully it will scare the shit right out of them, it did me.
The other day I took the kids to the pool. They were playing in the water while I sat on a lounge chair with a towel over my lap as when I sat down I realized I had my swim suit bottoms on inside out. The horror! The bottoms were black and the crotch section that was supposed to be on the inside was a nice bright white. I sat there devastated; hoping one of the children would have to pee soon so I could flip them around.
A little girl around the age of 9 came over to my chair and asked me if I could help her. She said she had no place to put her towel. That was the first indicator that the child was not “right.”Most kids come barreling into the pool, throwing there towels on the grass on the way through. I told the little girl that she could put her towel near our things and
I then asked if she was alone. She claimed she was with her brothers.
I watched her walk straight over to the low-diving board and jump-off. Within seconds a lifeguard had to jump into the pool and rescue her – it appeared that she didn’t know how to swim. The little girl was fine, there was no need for medical attention, she was shaken up but seemed okay. They cleared the pool, that’s procedure when they do a rescue and I could see them talking to the girl filling out paperwork on a clip-board. I figured they would call her parents and send her home. I was wrong. Within minutes she was back in the pool. Unbelievable!
I would rather sit on a chaise lounge with my swimming suit on inside out than walk away for one second and leave my kids. I never take my eyes off of them at the pool and they both have swimming lessons every year.
When I was a kid it was acceptable at a certain age, around 12, to go to the pool alone. But I’ve noticed a lot of kids at the pool, much younger, with no adult supervision. The lifeguards are not baby sitters they have a very serious job to do and when they are dealing with other issues such as kids goofing around, it takes their eyes off the pool. I think
there should be strict rules and regulations regarding kids coming to the pool without supervision. And shame on this girls parents for letting her go to the pool without an adult. I realize it takes a village to raise a child but who’s raising the parents in these situatuions?
Have an amazing day!
