Abandoned baby

So dad can’t “explain” how he forgot his infant daughter in his car in the parking garage; he just “forgot” to drop her off at day care and left her in the car – all day? Hmm.

I understand forgetting a half gallon of milk in the car and books, a pile of swimming gear, but an infant?

The question becomes what is the focus of our lives? What is so foremost in one’s brain that a father becomes more intent on getting himself to work than on caring for his child? The child in the back seat of his car.

Wonder what conversation followed between dad and mom; perhaps the consequences from Child Protective Services paled in comparison to the wrath of one enraged wife.
