Our first Mother of Year Award for 2012 winner is Lydia Colon. The 30-year-old unfit mother of four is charged with attempted murder after she tried to kill two of her daughters on New Year's day. Her 7-year-old daughter told police Lydia punched her in the face and body, kicked her four times in the chest and grabbed her by the hair and pushed her head under water in the bathtub. She told police she could not breathe when submerged. She said while her mother held her head underwater, she told her, “I am going to kill you, bitch.” The other child, an 11-year-old, said her mother punched her in the face and body then put her fingers in her mouth and tried to rip her mouth open. Both girls suffered bruises. Lydia is being held on $100,000 bond

A Los Angeles woman who expected her 2006 hybrid Honda Civic to be a high-mileage machine wants the automaker to pay for not delivering the 50 mpg it promised. But in lawsuit -- which she filed in small claims court -- Heather Peters argued that Honda knew her car wouldn't get the 50 mpg as advertised. She says the car barely got 30 mpg. If she's successful (and chances are she will), Heather can win $10,000.
