Alot of people hide behing their monitors and attempt comedy with stories like this...We should aa a society and a community be outraged that people like her are amongst us. The kids from no fault of their own probally will be the next generation of system leaches. Parents such as this should be sterilized, mocked and jailed and the children be given to a wanting family.Its easier for Americans to adopt kids from Carribean or Central Am.countries then their own backyard.I hope these kids are given a fair chance in life.

wow! so a pitbull can feed a child, change diapers, make sure a child doesnt get into any chemicals. open the front door, fall and crack their heads etc..? thats interesting. If anything pitbulls have been known to snap at their own owners and at children you idiot!. Shes lucky those kids were not found mauled to death!

Sterilize her, make her attend mandatory parenting classes and if she doesn't shape up, she loses full custody of her kids. Her kids didn't ask to be brought into this world. If she can't be a fit parent, she shouldn't be a parent at all.

Of course, if the dog was any other breed, it wouldn't have been mentioned. Way to go, Sentinel. Pathetic.

So this woman left her two YOUNG children at 3 PM and didn't return until 3:30 AM? How could a mother do that? And seemingly without any concern whether they were okay during that 12 hour period?

DRUGSSSS.

P.S. And you people think Casey Anthony is ugly... I think this "woman" takes the prize. She's just lucky she was caught before her neglect resulted in injury or death. Because quite honestly it appears these two children were neglected much more so than Caylee was.

Trashy skank. I feel for the children for having a w h o r e drunk arse of a mother. She has sentenced her children to a harsh life through her negligence.

The grandparents were still up because they are probably 38 years old.

The mother is the biggest idiot for leaving her kids alone, but orlando sentinel is an idiot for putting the word pit bull in this. You all sound so damn ignorant!

Who the heck leaves a 2 and 6 year old at home alone? If you think this is typical or ok, you must have some issues yourself!

We spend millions of dollars each year for sex education classes in schools so there should be no unwanted, neglected, or harmed children.

It's time to redirect the sex education money to a neuter/spay program for humans. One strike and you're out if you fail to be a responsible parent to love, protect, and support.

If found guilty of child neglect, abuse, don't pay child support, harm/murder your child, then it should be automatic neuter/spay for humans, to break the cycle of unwanted children with irresponsible parents.

Seriously? Her "chin stud" has nothing to do with this. That is not indicative of a "party girl" at all.

And maybe you can clue us in, what exactly do "we know what that is for"?

Chances are her children will grow up to be drug addicts and/or criminals.

Let's hope they'll beat the odds and rise above it all.

Glad these kids have granparents that care. Hopefully the grandparents will get custody. Sounds like mary could have an addiction problem of some sort.

BTW: Pit Bulls and toddlers are a bad mix. real bad
