Do NOT play with dead things!

How many times do you have to tell your kids this?  Well, for certain of my children this has to be repeated a lot.  Like the time dead mice were dressed up and used as dolls.  Or like today when a dead hummingbird was snuck home from school in a jacket pocket, was placed in a box (complete with a bed and food), and put it in a bedroom. As decor?  As a pet?  Who knows.

Luckily other children find this practice disgusting and tattle on the dead animal lovers so mom doesn't wonder days later what that horrible smell is.  YUCK!
