Traumatizing the Child

By January 9, 2013 5 Comments
We were given these beautiful angel candles for Christmas.  “Isn’t that darling?” I thought.  Then I lit the wick on top of the head.
The kids were horrified.  “Ahh!” Screamed Paige.  “The angel’s head is being burned off!”  She watched as slowly, slowly, the angel melted into nothing…

but wax.
It was scene right out of the Salem Witch trials.

And she looked at me, wondering what kind of mother would burn an angel’s head off.

    This made me giggle 🙂

  • Oh my goodness, this is dark humor at it’s finest. So funny.

    Hahahahaha! I’ve had some good moments like this one. So funny! That’s life as a mom, right? ; )

  • Bwa-ha-ha-ha! So funny!

    I guess you’re similar to the kind of parent who would dredge the angel Christmas tree topper out of the basement and hot glue her hands to her face — so that she resembles the Weeping Angel monster from Doctor Who. This act, when discovered by the children (avid Doctor Who fans), will inevitably result in screaming.

    Of course, if your children are anything like ours, they will get their revenge. Our girls got a ladder, fetched the Weeping Angel off the tree, and then planted her everywhere around the house where I might unexpectedly find her — causing ME to scream.

    I have NO idea why they picked on me instead of my husband.

    Do you think he was in on it …?

  • Oh no! Sounds like a Grimm Fairy Tale – maybe there is a story here?
