Do we ever know.......

who we decide to leave our  kids with? I state this this morning because while I was getting up this am I got a brief shot of a horrific news story out of NYC were a nanny "allegedly" stabbed to death a 2 and 6 year old that were left in her care and then tried to commit suicide. I cannot tell you how bad I feel this morning.  First their was painful sadness for this mother and the family....... next anger. I can tell you this if something like ever happened to me I would have nothing to lose and let's leave it at that. What makes a human and what goes through someone minds do something like this?   Not only did you gruesomely take the lives of two innocent angels but you have scarred that family forever. People like this should be punished by the full extent of the law, people like this should have no room on our earth.  Your were paying this person to look after your most precious gifts.  I can tell you this someone like this has had emotional issues in the past they just took awhile to surface because no matter how normal you may seem to be on the outside if a person has emotional issues it could take years to surface.  Do we ever truly know the people we allow in our lives? I am so numb this morning. After hearing this story I turned around and gave my husband a huge kiss and hug..... Because of how hard he works I am allowed to stay home with my child and take care of her myself. Before the bashing begins I KNOW that their are some families that do not have a choice but to have to go to work in order to support their families...I am just saying that I feel extremely lucky that at this point in our lives I can be the one raising my child and not some stranger. When your hiring nannies/babysitters and whomever is going to be around your children please be vigilant.   I might be super ass to the 100 power paranoid but that is the way it is going to be with me period.  We live in a world where you can no longer go by word of mouth when it comes to your kids.  Not only should you run a background check you should run a psychological background checks. Hire a reputable agency that run major FBI checks you cannot play Russian roulette with your families lives. This is a horrible crime and I cannot even begin to get myself ready this morning because all I wanna do is stay here and hug on my child.

After this story and some of the other stories/issues that have been floating around lately I am highly considering shutting down my blog. I believe the less people know now a days the better.

*hugs* I understand. It's terrifying to think of the things that are out in the world. A world that our children have to live in. Tragedy becomes personal for parents when it's about kids. I had a lot of reasons for home schooling, but one of them was definitely because of the Columbine shootings. Scary. You do what you have to do but know that you will be sorely missed if you shut down. Hold your kiddo tight! Blessings and Light to you MB!

I felt sick to my stomach when I first heard this story early yesterday morning. I cannot even imagine! I am one of the lucky ones right now too and I am able to stay home with the kids but the hubby's company is going through some changes which are not good and it might force me to have to get a job and I am already starting to lose it, we are probably months away from this but its already making me sad. I don't know what I will do if I have to leave!!! fingers crossed it won't come to that because I will be an emotional mess. I am on Instagram and i keep hearing all this chatter about people stealing pictures of others kids and posting them on the internet. There is some weird and twisted people out there. I really hope you don't shut it down:( Your one of my favorite bloggy friends:))

I'm right there with you. This story just broke my heart in sooo sooo many ways-the kids, the parents. Just so awful.

I don't even like it when the husband brings Buggy to the old bags house (his parents). I hate it when she is away from me-family or not.

Like you I'm truly grateful that I'm able to stay home with Buggy. There's just way too much shit happening out there

I hope u don't shut ur blog down cuz then I'll be on your doorstep knocking on those big boobies to stalk you-lol!

ahhh, don't kill the blog!!! I too was saddened by this story and cannot even imagine how this family will ever repair itself. I read that they often praised the nanny via her blog, and stayed with the nanny and her family in the Dominican or something. She just sanpped?

Feeling the love......
