11-Month Old Baby Plays with Bong

If everyone needs to ace a driver’s written exam and physical driving test, perhaps there should be similar exercises for parents.  No?  Maybe you’ll think different after you read this:

Rachel Stieringer, 19, from (duh) Keystone Heights, Florida thought it would be funny to take a picture of her almost 1-year-old child playing with a bong THEN upload it to Facebook.  Someone in Texas saw the photo and called an abuse hotline to report the “mom”, resulting in an arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia.

WEED IT & WEEP:Rachel Steiringer was arrested after posting this photo of her 11-month-old son playing with drug paraphernalia on Facebook.

Though the baby wasn’t hurt and drug tests came back negative, you still have to wonder about the outrageousness that this story presents. The mother defends herself by saying there’s “no bowl in the TABACCO pipe.” and “I took one pic to show someone and it was a mistake. I would never ever ever let him get high.”

The mother admits to a stupid lapse in judgment, stating that she would never do anything to hurt her child and blablablabla.
