    Default Don't even know what to say :(

    This is really sad and I was literally in tears when I found out. I was babysitting my little cousins (my cousins sons) who are 2 and 3 1/2 as I heard this news so it hit home.

    In Union, NJ where I live 2 brothers drowned. Their mother fell asleep around 3 or so and the little boys got out of the house, jumped the fence into the neighbors yard and went into the pool. Well the little boys couldnt swim and therefore they drowned. The mother woke up around 6 or 7 and couldnt find her sons. She called the police who came and searched and looked over the fence and saw the 2 boys next door at the bottom of the pool They tried CPR and brought them to the hospital where they were prounounced.

    The worst part about this is that the neighbor told the mother the DAY BEFORE that her children were climbing the fence and she ignored it and told them they were lying. I feel this was so preventable if the mother was more aware of what her children were doing. I could be totally out of line as I am not a mother but I spend a lot of time with little cousins, newphew, friends children and I DO NOT take my eyes off of them for a minute. I just hope all parents saw the news and talk to their children and take measures to prevent this from ever happening again. I feel very sorry for the whole family as this is such a tragic event. I feel horrible for their father and mother.

    This is awful. You are NOT out of line. With children that young, you do not nap and leave them to their own devices. I could understand if they had a much older sibling why she would think this *might* be ok but for god sake they are tiny

    so not okay... If she needed to take a nap that badly then she should have put them down for one also.

    How heartbreaking. As a mom, I know where my kids are at all times. My hubs thinks I am overprotective, but I think I'm just cautious.

    Oh my gawd, sich an awful hard lesson to learn. Very sad that it could have been prevented. Heck we have kid locks on all our doors so this couldnt happen, too bad more parents dont secure their house better.

    What a tragic ending. Don't have kids yet but my mom has told me that one of the sacrifices you'd need to make are the afternoon naps. She'd even stay up when my grandfather was on babysitting duties because she knew that he'd accidentally snooze off for fifteen minutes or so.

    So sad for everyone involved.

    What will be even more unfortunate, will be the lawsuit the napping mother will attempt on her neighbor - cause it wont be the mothers fault, the fence wasnt high enough, or the water was too deep, or the property owner should of done more to prevent the accident. I will guarantee it will be someone elses, anyone elses fault, than her's. Pure speculation here - because of the way society has gotten.

    How tragic but very preventable and irresponsible of the mother.

    That is just awful .... when my two were growing up I kept ALL the doors locked, and actually still do out of habit!!! I also made a point of paying for my kids to have swimming lessons as soon as they were old enough!!!!

    I also feel bad for the pool owner, since I am one I can minimally relate!! More than likely she will be sued even though she had a fence and took precautions!! VERy sad story!!


    I'm a good girl, I promise
