Hmm...

I can't imagine doing this.  My children drive me mad, but I would never strap them into my car then drive into a body of water to drown them.  No way, no how.  That woman needs to have her current pregnancy delivered, then be tossed into a setting where she would never be anywhere near children ever again...maybe after having a sterilization procedure. 

But there was one thing I noticed in the piece: the kids are going to their grandparents.  Where is their father?  Or fathers?

  1. Too many children, not enough resources and wanting it all to end at one time, without the family being broken apart.

    It's not right, but some people are so overwhelmed, death seems to be the easiest solution.

    1. She was stupid. No other words for it.

    3. Darwin awards aren't supposed to be tried for after the deserving individual makes their genetic contribution.

  2. That last question is most pertinent.

    1. Kinda what I thought...but what do I know? I just have two children, an involved partner, and the ability to plan ahead (and take precautions to prevent many unexpected expenses from popping out).

  3. Totally agree with you on all counts.

    Of all the sad stories on the news this morning (and there were a lot, locally - lots of people mistreating others) this one was the most wtf and sad for me.

    I presume the father was either worse, or totally not in the picture, so that's why the grandparents got the kids. I hope they do a decent job of caring for them.

    1. There's also the possibility that she didn't know who fathered any of the children.
