A 17-year-old babysitter in Whatcom County, Washington orchestrated a false home invasion along with her 16-year-old boyfriend and another male suspect. After getting 4-year-old Abby out of the house so her friends could do the deed, the babysitter made up a story about two armed black men breaking into the Ferndale home. She went on to say that one of the men looked like Cody Oakes, the next door neighbor. Oakes, an operations manager for JP Morgan, was arrested and questioned before Abby broke the case open by telling police they had the wrong skin color, the robbers were white. The case began to unravel from there, and the babysitter confessed. Abby, despite her detective skills, says she would "love to be a doctor." Bellingham Herald via 22 Words

Mica Angela Hendricks lets her 4-year-old daughter finish some of her drawings, and the results are pretty fantastic.
Not surprisingly, I LOVED what she drew. I had drawn a woman’s face, and she had turned her into a dinosaur-woman. It was beautiful, it was carefree, and for as much as I don’t like to share, I LOVED what she had created. Flipping through my sketchbook, I found another doodle of a face I had not yet finished. She drew a body on it, too, and I was enthralled. It was such a beautiful combination of my style and hers. And she LOVED being a part of it. She never hesitated in her intent. She wasn’t tentative. She was insistent and confident that she would of course improve any illustration I might have done. …And the thing is, she DID.Mica's blog. Prints are available at Society6. | Laughing Squid
