Here's a reminder for all you Mother's out there on what not to do for Mother's Day this year.
A 44 year-old mom has been arrested for allegedly taking her five year-old daughter into a tanning booth with her and giving the child a "pretty severe sunburn."
According to MSNBC, Patricia Krentcil's claims her daughter got burned the old-fashioned way: From being in the sun. She's been released on $25,000 bail. Her defense statement (and leathery skin color) pretty much says it all:
“It’s like taking your daughter to go food shopping,” she said. “There’s tons of moms that bring their children in. … I tan, she doesn’t tan. I’m in the booth, she’s in the room. That’s all there is to it.”
