…but still, this is NOT responsible parenting (duh).
Gee, you don’t suppose it got posted to Facebook while she was zonked, do you? And unless she was in the habit of giving her password to friends, I’d say it was she herself who posted it, and just doesn’t want to admit it for fear of looking worse than she already does. An understandable reaction, but still, when you’re on the road to motherhood, it’s time to put your bong-smoking days behind you, lest you end up with a kid who repeats all your juvenile mistakes.
The mother of a baby who appeared to be smoking a bong told a detective she thought it was funny that her 11-month-old son put the bong into his mouth and looked like he was smoking pot, according to court documents released Thursday.Rachel Stieringer, 19, of Keystone Heights, was arrested on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia following the infamous photograph that attracted so much attention on the Internet.Detectives said Stieringer admitted to having the bong in her bedroom. She told investigators she was cleaning her room one day and her young son crawled in and put the pipe up to his mouth, according to the documents.Stieringer said that’s when she snapped a picture of it on her phone, detectives said.According to the arrest warrant affidavit, Stieringer admitted to sending the pictures to a few friends but told detectives she had no idea how it got posted to her Facebook account.The affidavit says Stieringer failed a drug test and had traces of marijuana in her system.
