Kid Stuff

A friend sent this to me--I have no idea where it came from, but I thought you'd get a chuckle!

When students in a second grade class were given a homework assignment to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, "Sarah" turned in the lovely drawing below. Needless to say, the teacher was a bit surprised--Sarah's mom, Mrs. Smith, had always seemed like such a conservative woman. So she sent a note home to the girl's mother asking for clarification as to the picture's meaning.


Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter, Sarah, how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture does NOT show me dancing around a pole. It's supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Sincerely, Mrs. Smith

Oh dear - I'm afraid that pole dancing is exactly what came into my mind when I first saw it too - what does that say about me? :o)))

LOL! Reminds me of what a teacher told a group of parents at back to school night when my kids were little - she said "I promise to believe only half of what your child tells me about YOU, if you promise to believe only half of what they tell you about ME!" I always thought given kids imaginations that was a classic!

LOL, that is too funny. And I would never have guessed that it was a shovel. Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh.

An update on yesterday, I did make a pie for National pie day, like you mentioned... then later, I dropped it on the floor. *sigh* The horrible thing is that earlier this week I made a home-made pizza and it also ended up on the floor. What a clutz!

ROFLOL!!!!

That's a hilarious picture!!
But makes me wonder do teachers really send home notes asking what the pictures means?? Even if she was a pole dancer would she need to explain that to the teacher?

That's funny but true. The last snow shovel can cause amazing behaviour by adults! Oh, and your pie loos delicious. Sounds like a great combo

This reminds me of a story written by an actual first grader of my co-worker. It went like this:

My Mom works at S@m's Wh0reh@us. She is a demo lady and gives out free sampals.

ROFL-MAO!
