How sad is this?  In New Zealand a mother left her baby in her car with a note on top of the baby.  MSN.com is reporting:

When worried folks gathered around her car and read the note she'd placed on her sleeping newborn, tucked into the car seat and locked inside. "My mum's in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything," the note read (it also listed the mom's cellphone number). Rather than calling the authorities, the bystanders felt sorry for the mother and called her instead. "As parents ourselves we know it is hard to get a baby to sleep, and once you start moving them they can wake up," said one man. "We thought it was just a silly decision by a tired mother."

Silly decision by a tired mother?  Really?  What other bad parenting decisions is she making?
