Whether you’re a DVR/Tivo user or there’s life yet in the old VCR, you might want to program it to record tomorrow’s (Wednesday, Oct. 1) Oprah.
It’s a full-hour interview with Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby, the Cincinnati mother who forgot her 2-year-old daughter in the back seat of her SUV last year. The little girl died while trapped in that SUV for eight hours as her mom, an assistant principal, was at work.
In other words, every parent’s worst nightmare.
Oprah’s calling the episode “An Overwhelmed Mom’s Deadly Mistake,” with this ominous teaser: “Overwhelmed moms and dads, let this be your wake-up call.” I must say, as a sometimes-overwhelmed mom of a 2-year-old myself, I’m very curious what Ms. Nesselroad-Slaby has to say.
