"Killing him with my bare hands"...would be an understatement.

MIDLAND, Texas - A 3-month-old baby was left unattended in a shopping cart for about an hour Sunday when her parents accidentally left her behind, police said. Shoppers noticed the abandoned baby at a Toys "R" Us store, Midland police Sgt. Alfredo Grimaldo said.

"It was a misunderstanding among family members," Grimaldo said in Monday editions of the Midland Reporter-Telegram. "One man took the kids home and left the ladies to shop. But when he took the kids, he didn't take the baby from the cart."

The family members, who were traveling in different cars, didn't realize what happened until they all got home and nobody had the baby, he said.

"We don't think it was really a child abandonment issue. It was just a misunderstanding," Grimaldo said.

Police spokeswoman Tina Jauz said Child Protective Services is looking into the case.

Me thinks the divorce will be final by spring.

    Yea, that's repulsive to think of a negligent act as being a "misunderstanding".

    Did you hear of the case where the mother put her child through the x-ray machine at the airport. Luckily the child wasn't harmed. The mother, who couldn't speak English, made no comment.

    Just sick. And part of what's wrong with the world today with all the go go go, hurry, hurry, hurry, mentalities.

    Yes, I heard about the baby being x-rayed. I almost posted it on here tonight, actually.

    My former husband "lost" our youngest daughter at church once. He was chit-chatting with one of his buddies after the service and wasn't paying attention to her wandering away. She was in the building, of course, and it only took a few minutes to find her, but it was the longest few minutes of my life and I thought I was going to kill him. I can't imagine what I would do if he had actually LEFT her somewhere!!

    Jenn, you're right - everyone is in a hurry going nowhere. It's a wonder it doesn't happen more often.
