34 years old grandma????

Isn't 34 really young to be a grandmother? This is an example of the problem with kids having kids, either she got started really young or her daughter did or both. Prayers go out to this poor baby, hopefully they can place him in a safe, loving environment.

Attempted Negligent Homicide?

Attempted Negligent Homicide? I don't know the official wording of the law itself. Do 13 month olds walk/crawl? I can't remember. Trying to figure how he got into it. I figure there were some lines cut out on the coffee table and the little guy threw his hand up and pulled himself to eye level and swiped his hand across with sticky fingers, as baby's tend to have, and some of the powder stuck to it? Just lucky it wasn't enough to kill him.
