Check out this Mother of the Year


FORT SMITH, Ark. – A mother who drank 13 beers before a psychological evaluation failed to recover custody of her three young children despite claiming she wasn't drunk because she "can drink like a fish." The woman wanted to get the children back from her husband's stepmother.

The Arkansas Court of Appeals rejected her Wednesday, citing addictions, frequent absences and criminal activity to support her habits. It said the woman made no meaningful efforts to restructure her life.

The children are ages 6, 4 and 4. The state took custody in 2007 when the woman's mother said she could no longer care for the children. Human Services workers later won an order declaring the children's mother unfit and want to see the children adopted.

I was taken out to lunch yesterday by our lab company to Sweet Lemons in Plymouth and the waitress said last friday 7 women came for breakfast and started ordering mimosas as this was their last day of freedom before school vacation. Well 3 hours later, she had to remind them to go to the bus stop. So sometimes,, there's a good reason. (remembering thats why I'm in AA) Love, Mom
