We're now taking nominations for worst mother ever. Today's candidate, 32-year-old Michelle Marie Cheatham.

Hailing from Sweet Springs, Missouri, Cheatham's nomination comes thanks to the shocking story of her son bringing mom's crack pipe and "several baggies of crack rocks" to kindergarten show-and-tell on September 6.

KCTV5 reported that Cheatham is charged with possession of a controlled substance and first-degree child endangerment.

The boy is reportedly now being cared for by loved ones after authorities used a drug-sniffing dog to search Cheatham's home. The dog reportedly found a crack pipe. As for the crack in the little boy's backpack, it's valued at $3,700.

Now, if you're feeling nothing but contempt for Cheatham, I can't blame you. But KCTV5 did note that Cheatham's life began to fall apart "after her husband died earlier this year in a car crash and she received a sizable military pension." And she's in the hospital due to complications from a previous gastrointestinal surgery.

None of which makes me feel at all sorry for Cheatham, who allegedly left her meth out for her son to find. Let's hope this little boy ends up with a better life.
