Child's Play

  • Pay waitress...check.
  • Load gifts into car...check.
  • Pack up left-over pizza and cake...check.

Forgotten anything? Hmmm...oh well, it must not be important. Let's roll!

From The Detroit News:
Warren parents leave boy, 3, at Caesarland birthday party

Charges possible in case; child now in foster care

In a case police call "outrageous and disturbing," the parents of a 3-year-old could face child abuse and abandonment charges today after reportedly leaving the toddler at Caesarland on Saturday following his birthday celebration.

Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said the parents, a 33-year-old woman and 41-year-old man, took the boy to the Chuck E. Cheese-style restaurant for a party. Around 9 p.m., the manager spotted the child and couldn't find anyone to claim him. Staffers contacted police, who handed him over to Child Protective Services, which placed the boy in foster care.

...Both said that up until Sunday, each thought the other had the child or that he could be with a grandmother, he added.
