Caylee Anthony was only six months older than my Jem. Her pictures struck me; they looked so much alike at two year's of age.
I have my selfish moments, when my patience is tried, when I throw myself a pity party for things I can't do because I'm a parent and the girls have to come first, or for how hard parenting can be sometimes.
As I followed the news today, I was in a fight with Jem over a 102+ temperature that is as stubborn as she is. I just had to wake her up for another round of medicine after finding her temperature is still up there. That selfish part of me started to dread having to set an alarm to check again in four hours.
I can't believe that, even with years to prepare for this case, it wasn't strong enough to convince the jury.
