    And some kids complain that going to Grandma's house is boring...

    Thank God everyone's okay, but I can't help but wonder if maybe her parents aren't a little to blame, if the grandparents had this much of an alcohol problem. Don't tell me, let me guess, Grandpa's license is revoked due to DUI's, isn't it?

    I noticed the news articles doesn't say anything about who the little girl was turned over to ... sure hope this is not a situation of absentee parents ... and the little girl lives with these "loser" grandparents.

    The second article in the first post says that dad came home and got a little verbal to his mom. The little girl was turned over to her dad.
