Gladly, I did not see this! I get over emotional!
I am not taking sides, because I know only what I read on here just now; but think about it: she's back at work, first day, maybe a lot on her mind, maybe scared or excited; if the child was asleep when she pulled up to school, JUST maybe she didn't even look over her shoulder. I often have to FORCE myself to check my backseat for stow-aways or hiding ppl who may intend to harm me. If I have a million things on my m ind, I don't always check the backseat.
My question is "how did she buy donuts and manage to leave a child in the car", first of all. I know this is the lesser of the crime, but let's start at the beginning rather than the end!
She must have been nervous / excited about work, or frustratyed with morning traffic. When I have younger one in my car, no matter what age, I talk to them - who cares if they can fully understand me, they're learning and I'm venting sometimes or just being happy.
We should all make an effort to smile, especially in the prescense of others! Life is too short to be cruel,so be kind! Don't judge others; that's not your job - only GOD has that right!
