We have had a second sighting of the unstable mother from Fulton Drugs parking lot. It appears that she has moved into the neighborhood. At 9:14 this morning, a mere one minute before the school down the street is supposed to start, she was seen in front of her house. To say she was disheveled is an understatement. She was wearing light purple and blue fuzzy pajama pants, a pair of Ugg boots with part of the pants tucked in and part out, what appeared to be some type of hunting/lumberjack fleece sweatshirt - blue and black checkered - over top another sweatshirt. Her hair was matted in the back and crazy in the front, as if it hadn't been brushed in several weeks. It was obvious she hadn't looked in the mirror this morning, if ever.
Perhaps more disturbing was the state of her children. The youngest was dressed but appeared to be wearing a coat at least 2 sizes too big for her and was not wearing any socks or shoes. She was flung into the car by her mother and hastily strapped in. Then the middle child, a boy, was not dressed at all. He was still in his pajamas and was wearing green frog boots and a winter coat. The eldest child was standing in the doorway with her book bag open, things spilling out, trying to hold all the things required for a day of kindergarten - mittens, scarf, hat, lunch bag and her enormous book bag. She was holding the door open trying to listen to the instructions of her crazed mother in the driveway. It went something like this:
GO! GO! GO! WE ARE GOING TO BE LATE!! NO YOU DON'T NEED TO WEAR ALL THAT STUFF TO SCHOOL! YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUTSIDE FOR 2 SECONDS WHILE YOU WALK IN THE BUILDING! I KNOW THAT MRS. B SAID YOU WERE TO WEAR ALL THAT STUFF TO SCHOOL BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ACTUALLY WEAR IT INTO THE BUILDING WHEN WE ARE A MINUTE AWAY FROM BEING LATE AND YOUR MOTHER HAVING TO WALK IN THE SCHOOL LOOKING LIKE THIS!!! GO! NICO SIT DOWN! SIT DOWN OR I WILL LEAVE YOU HERE! FRANCESCA YOU DO NOT NEED SHOES, I WILL TURN ON THE HEAT, WE AREN'T GOING TO BE GONE LONG! WE ARE GOING TO BE LATE!!!
As you can see she is clearly disturbed, unable to dress herself or all her children in a timely manner or in a calm manner, for that matter. Please let us know if you witness anything in your neighborhood. We think we have it contained to this one area. Also contact your local law enforcement agency if you see any of her children not dressed appropriately, it will be getting cold out soon and we want to make sure to maintain the health of these children......someone has to do it.
Have a good weekend and may all your mornings be merry!
