      So, you want to know how to be a “great mom?” You could drop some dough on a book called 101 Ways to be a Great Mom. Or you could take your kids out shoplifting and get yourself the five finger discount!

      Decisions, decisions.

      An Ohio mom has been accused of taking her two kids out to the local Dollar General with their daddy and shoving a parenting book in her pocket before waltzing out the door.

      Police say Callie Rough also stashed wash cloths, hand towels and a small rug while her partner, James Rogers, allegedly stole a package of garbage bags. Confronted by store employees, Rough allegedly refused to let them search her oversized purse, instead running to the back of the store and emptying it herself. On the way out, employees said she threw more purloined items at them before the whole family made a run for it.  

      Police found both Rough and Rogers had active warrants against them, and placed them under arrest. Dad was charged with receiving stolen property, Mom with theft.

      And 101 Ways to be a Great Mom? That was confiscated. But I see a sequel in the works - Rule #102, don’t take your kids with you on your shoplifting trips.
