Let's get back to the issue, which is that the PP will lose her three children if she and her dh try to pursue custody of his own biological child, based on the fact that they were rude to a CPS worker and that there were a few toys on the floor. That by itself is so scary! And there has got to be some way for them to get their own child back!

that's what is scary because I was very rude to the worker. They sent 2 workers out one day. I felt like crap, after I had my TL my cramps and that time are horrible. I was getting ready to start so I felt drained, and was in constant pain every time I tried to move. I had to go pee, so I went in the bathroom and 2 minutes later I came out and the kids crunched some cheesies into the carpet. I was cleaning it up, when there was a knock at the door. So I got up and answered it. A handful of cheesies, and a few toys on the floor was the only mess I had. Hubby did breakfast and breakfast dishes for me because he knew I felt like crap. The workers came in and were being really rude to me about the cheesies, and feeling like that I was not in the mood for thier crap, so I asked them to leave because it wasn't a good time. They didn't leave. So I got more irritated, especially since every time I tried to clean up the cheesies they just kept talking making rude comments about it. I asked them to leave my house 3 times, and they still refused. My husband came downstairs and asked what the problem was, and before I could even say anything, the workers were telling him how rude I was being. He apologized for my rudeness, and they left finally. I told him that I was nice until they wanted to be rude and disrespectful to me. The workers were not only rude to me, they were also rude to my 3 year old daughter. I'm sorry, a few cheesies that would have taken me 10 minutes to clean up, should not have taken 45 minutes because they wanted to continue with me. The one worker was saying that it would not have happened if my kids had thier cheesies in the kitchen at the table like they should have. They did have them at the table, I had to get up and walk away for a couple minutes so I was not right there to have them keep them at the table. So what? What kid hasn't done something like that? I'm one person here all day, I can't be on top of them every second of the day, little messes happen. I have a vacuum and a shampooer, it's not like there was poop everywhere or something. Apparently a 2 year old kid dropping a handful of cheesies on the carpet, and mushing it in is a "Safety Concern" It's not like they had a lit torch.. Or Sharp Scissors cutting each other's hair off.. or something that could really hurt them. It was cheesies.. My son had a little bit of diaper rash. He's 1. I didn't put anything on it because it was just a little red and puffy and I knew in a few hours it would go away anyway. Not a big deal. There was a worker here, while he had it and I had to change his diaper and she made a comment about him being a little red. And I said yes, he is a little red, and she asked me if I had Desitin or anything to put on it, and I said yes. I did not use it because he didn't need it. Well, 2 days later the supervisor showed up at my house, and wanted me to wake my 1 year old son up, SICK he was up all night the night before with a fever and throwing up, to show her the diaper rash was gone. She was mad when I refused to wake him up. I'm sorry, who is going to wake thier sick child up at 8 in the morning, when the poor baby didn't even go to sleep until 6 because he was sick? Um, no parent that I know. The workers wanted to come back to my home later that day to check on his diaper rash, and I asked them if it was a little inapporpriate because I felt it was. And when they came back not a word was said about diaper rash, or checking it. So I guess she didn't like being called out on it that there was no reason for them to be snooping in his diaper area to begin with. Could be me though, I'm weird about that. I don't like changing diapers in front of people that I'm not comfortable with being around, and that my kids don't know. Especially since my mother remarried a few years ago to such a wonderful person that he's online for being a registered sex offender for acts agaisnt a minor. Ever since she tried to bring him around my kids after I told her not to, people staring at my kids like that freaks me out. Sounds kind of irrational now that I'm writing this and seeing it, but I'm still not comfortable with it. To me, I think the only people that should be looking at a child's diaper area is the person bathing them (Me nobody else does it), The person changing the diaper (Me or hubby) Or a Dr.

This is awesome news, I hope everything gets back to normal now. Kids are messy little people and for them to have given you that much trouble over things like cheesies smooshed into the floor is just horrible.
