What's wrong with this picture?

(click to enlarge)

Guess who's looking for another visit from Child Welfare agents? It's Britney, it's Britney! Doesn't she ever learn? Little Sean Preston has to be a year old before he can sit in a forward facing car seat, yet here he is, hunched over in his Britax Roundabout while his white trash mama drives around with rollers in her hair. There is simply no excuse for this kind of stupidity. I know from experience that the Britax Roundabout can be installed in both forward and rear facing modes, the instructions are clearly written on the car seat itself. It's not rocket science Brit. Plus, his seatbelt doesn't look too snug, which explains why the poor guy is falling a little too forward in his seat. I wish I could rescue this little baby, he's doomed. [source, source]

What a moron. Her son is so cute too. It's so sad that money cannot afford you anyone to teach how you to raise your child decently.

Someone needs to snatch that precious baby away from her before she hurts him. She's such a white trash idiot. She should not be allowed to breed. She can screw up her life all she wants, and I won't lose sleep over it... but that little baby (and the one to follow) needs someone to love and protect him. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! I wanna pull her hair out one curler at a time!

OMG! She left the top open!!!! What about all that wind-buffeting in the back? What if a projectile comes in and hits baby? This is totally reckless.

Is there a law about babies not riding in open-top cars? If not, there should be.

In addition to all those things you mentioned Ameet, that poor baby is getting a massive sunburn. I don't think there is a law that forbids a baby from riding in a convertible, but there IS a law the requires all babies under the age of 1 (Britney's baby is about 9 months old) to be in a rear facing carseat in the backseat of a car. In addition to being 1, the baby must also be 20 lbs. before they can be forward facing. My twins are on the small side and were in a rear facing car seat until about 14 months, when they actually became 20 lbs. I didn't want to take chances, no parent other than Britney does.

looks like she tossed him in the back seat like an old jacket or purse

yeah, convertible, not such a good idea,

think she may be a little self centered?

ok, my first thought when I saw this pic on Pink's site or wherever, was - "wow, what an idiot." And I still do think she's an idiot, for a whole lot of reasons (umm..Kev?)

But I also think we're all being a little harsh. Come on people, she's what - 24 and a first time mom with a useless husband. Maybe it's the years of working in Family court and seeing real cases of abuse and neglect that makes me a little bit more willing to overlook general parental stupidity. Because trust me, the really hurtful things parents can do to their kids make Britney eligible for mother of the year.

On Blogging baby, they invited readers to submit stories of their parental lapses, and here's some responses they got:

-Two of us at least have had children who eat their own poop.

-One of us watched with horror as her toddler ate a cicada in front of her, but she was breastfeeding a younger baby, and couldn't get to the older child in time to stop it.
-Three of us have children who love beer.

-One of us has a child who says beer is, "Nummy."
-One of us had to leave a restaurant with a one-year-old who was screaming adamantly for beer after seeing the adults served.

-Two of us have had children who have, for one reason or another, been determined not to be strapped correctly into their carseats. Discoveries were made while we were driving, and pulling over safely was not possible.

-At least one of us has locked children into the car with the car running.

I don't know about you all, but I've made my share of stupid mistakes with my son, I'm sure I'll have plenty more in the future, and I thank god I'm not in the public eye when I make them. As far as the hair rollers - oh please. You should see what I wear when I head out the door.

that's true Sadaf, no parent is perfect, me included. As I criticize Brit, I'm ignoring the fact that my son is sitting on the potty yelling for me to clean him. Poor guy is just festering on the pot right now. But Britney is in the public eye and is already on the watchlist of Child Welfare services, you'd think she'd become a little more careful about what she does in public with her baby.

Oh, and babies drinking beer? LOL! That's news to me. I have to go google what a cicada is too, I'm clueless about that one too. But I'll try to be a good parent and wash my son's butt first. Lota duty calls. ;)

Chic Mommy said...

aha! answer found at It's an insect, but luckily not poisonous. some people make sheesh kabobs out of them.

Unknown said...

ooh..sheesh kabobs. (feeling very nauseous). I've seen cicadas in our backyard in the summer and they are so reptilian looking. They look like miniature versions of the monster in Alien. Shuddering at the thought of picking one up to eat.
