Season 6, Episode 5 | October 25th, 2009
We know Gaby has a relaxed approach to parenting, but we're still shocked when another woman calls her a "lousy mother" to her face! The other moms snub her, so she lures the neighborhood children to Juanita's birthday party with promises of big attractions like a clown, a bouncy house, even a monkey! The party is a smash, but then the monkey goes ape and attacks the clown! Gaby laments, "I am a terrible mom," but Carlos points out that their girls didn't panic like the other kids. "They are independent and resourceful, and that is thanks to your negligence," he says reassuringly.
