  1. If the child was only 17mths old the mother did not know the monster well enough to be living in the home with her kids or even to be left unattended with her in the home and he damn sure should not have been babysitting. They need to start charging these mothers with neglect and endangerment for moving these guys in there homes with there children and having no clue who they are because they didnt even take the time to learn them. This dude wasnt even the father of any of the kids either just a bum with an expired id three outfits one pair of decent shoes and maybe decent ween and boom now he has her place to stay and her car to drive.
    How much dirty clothes did she have that took 6-7hrs to wash and dry and why did she let it get to be that much. I dont like her and I dont think loosing a child was enough for her to learn to stop bringing these men she does not know around her kids moving them in their home and leaving them alone with the kids she is going to do it again.
