Death to Easter. Wait, that's not what I meant.

I thought I was doing pretty good getting this cute little lamb for Mia. I envisioned her carrying it to church in it's little basket and thanking me profusely for not giving in to societies' pressure to indulge her in sugary processed snacks. Needless to say this surprise did little to make her a better person. In fact psychologists have studied the following behaviors in children and their findings are quite disturbing.

It starts out innocently enough...
Then she uses good ole peer pressure to convince Raegan to join in (and believe me, it didn't take much)...And here it is: The Decapitation Of Little Lamby. Happy Easter everyone!
*You may think I should consider parenting my children instead of taking pictures of their inappropriate antics. You are probably right, but you know you have always wanted to cut a lambs head off, admit it.

Funny! Funny, funny, funny! Glad you didn't buy her a real baby chick! That could've been messy!

Oh my goodness!!! That is too funny! I think I would have taken the pics first too and then told her it was wrong!

Oh. Dear.

It's like you knew the decapitation was bound to happen, given the before and after shots. If so, that is really disturbing, Summer. And whatever. I know Mia had to totally twist my daughter's arm to get her to do such a demented thing.

I'm not sure I've always wanted to decapitate a sheep, but around 5 years old I went around the house and found all the cash I could and trimmed off what I assumed to be excess paper (the white edges). Hey - that's what my parents get for giving me access to scissors.

I always cut Skipper's hair off. Never Barbie, just poor poor Skipper.

From the look of the pictures it really does appear that maybe you gave the girls scissors to have something interested to blog about. Hmmm...maybe I should try it. I haven't blogged in a while.

Well, it didn't take me long to figure out where it was heading and I couldn't resist documenting the process.
