But at least she didn't drink and drive

Texas police say 12-year-old girl drove mom to bar

LONGVIEW, Texas — A 35-year-old Texas woman has been jailed after police say she made her 12-year-old daughter drive her to a bar. Police in Longview say they watched a minivan turn into a driveway without signaling on Wednesday and bump into a home at a low speed. They say the car was driven by Jennifer Lynn Rosenberg's daughter.

Police say the girl told an officer she had just dropped her mother off at a bar. They say they found Rosenburg at the bar and that she admitted having her daughter drive her there.

Rosenburg remains in the Gregg County Jail on a $2,500 bond. A jail official declined to say whether she had an attorney.

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services told the Longview News-Journal that the agency is investigating.

But isn't that why we have kids? To drive us to and from the bar?

Wha'?

Absolutely this is why we have kids.
In my hometown this last weekend, police arrested two adults, the woman nearly naked, at 6 am in the morning because they had parked their car in the middle of an intersection and gone to sleep. Oh, I forgot to mention that they had a 2-year-old and 3-year-old asleep with them. The man got a DUI and she got a public intoxication.

And the kids get to go home with the half-naked drunk woman. Now there's some fine parenting, right there.
