The morning she was caught she was driving to school to drop off her other kids. She said in another interview that the baby (who is 'under 2 years old') is fed at certain, exact times. This leads one to believe she's in the habit of feeding her baby every morning on the way to school. She also stated that "she had no choice, and that she is being picked on."
You'd think that after being charged with child endangerment she would have woken up and said "Yes, you're right, I'm so sorry, I've learnt my lesson, I won't do it again." Instead she has taken an arrogant stance, one of "I'll do what I darn well please when I darn well please."
She also stated that the airbag would protect the baby should it be deployed. I was in an accident once, and received injuries on my chest and abdomen from the seat belt, which took a few weeks to heal. My doctor told me I was lucky the airbag didn't go off, or my injuries would have been much worse. It's like being kicked hard in the head apparently, and that's assuming you're a certain distance away when it goes off. To be right up against the steering wheel... *shudders*
I hope the judge throws the book at her. She is a sorry excuse of a mother.
