Grandparents have really lame senses of humor. They're all like "Do you know what day Army Day is? March Forth!" and when you say "hey!" they're all "Hey is for horses!" and they're also all like "check out the duct tape I put over the baby's mouth! HAHAHAHAHA!" Wait...that last one doesn't sound right.
"You're going to regret this after you finish reading me Hansel and Gretel."
That's the kind of humor that Ohio grandmother Jackie Sheaks of West Columbus loves, anyway. She posted two images to Facebook that landed her in hot water: one of her granddaughter with a pacifier taped to her mouth (it looks as if there are airholes, and I'm sure (I'm not sure) that it was just for a second), and another where the baby was in a pot with vegetables as if she was about to be roasted in the oven. "It started out as just a joke; we put a little tape on the pacifier because we were being silly," Sheaks explained to WBNS-10TV, "we wanted to share it with friends because everybody that knows us, knows we play around like that."
"I ate his liver with some mashed peas and a nice appy juice."
Child Protective Services and the police did not "Like" her photo, however, and soon showed up at her door. There have been no charges made, because in the end they were just photos. The girl's mother said she has no problem with the pictures, but that it made her feel good that CPS and the cops showed up to investigate.
As for granny Jackie, she insists "we're not horrible people that they are making us out to be....We would never harm our children, never."
I will say this about that kid: she is indeed so cute that you just want to eat her up. MMM.
