The U.S should have child care programs for single mothers of 3 young babies whom husbands are fighting for this country. Because 3 kids that age while hubby is away or about to be sent away can be very stressful. Jmo
I agree. I have a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old. The younger two are only 363 days apart. I'm on my own in the Spring and Fall when my husband is farming around the clock. It's hard now, but it was impossible when I had a newborn and a 12 month old. I get chills just remembering it. I cried all of the time. The youngest wasn't planned. I was in a very ugly place. It's still not easy. Two babies are really hard. This lady basically had 3. The twins were only 6 months old. Postpartum psychosis, without a doubt.
Poor kids. Poor family. :-(
Iam glad to hear that you are hanging in there. Baby swings and alvin and the chimpmunk cartoons will keep your little ones occupied all day long. They just love the singing of the chimpmunks. This will buy you some time to do you. Hopefully once your 4 year old starts pre school, you will have more time too. Good luck.
She was part of our local Buy Nothing Olympia group, a group in which neighbors give gifts of items they no longer have a need for. One of my friends, an admin of the group was actually Facebook friends with her and had met her and her husband before. She said they both seemed very nice and upbeat. It just shows you don't truly know what happens behind closed doors. This is very sad, stress, alcohol and antidepressants are a terrible mix. It makes me wonder if the husband *made* her remove the crying children like she stated, or if that was a perceived annoyance and she was making her job harder on herself. If dad truly cannot handle them crying, it makes me wonder what the permanent placement for the kids will be?
I'm surprised at all the comments in support of this woman. Yes, parenting is hard and some situations even harder than normal, but what she did is wrong and unforgivable. Stress is not an excuse for murder (which is what I believe she intended to do.)
