Always check your child's homework

The assignement was to draw a picture of what you want to be when you grow up and here is what the little girl turned in:


(Here's the reply the teacher received the following day)

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 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 doesn't 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

The things kids say, do and repeat at school would make anyone red in the face.

My neighbor teaches a pole dancing exercise class. Her daughter was asked if her Mom was coming to the PTA meeting the other night and her daughter told the teacher, "No, Mom has to go pole dance".

My neighbor was at the school the next day explaining.

Too funny.

My sister works with special ed kids in the high school now, but she taught kindergarten for a few years. One little girl told the class she was not allowed to eat nuts because she was allergic. And the little girl specifically said "Not even those special nuts that only boys have in their pants." Ya know, because kindergarten girls are often eating those in class?!?

I don't know... I think Mommy was desperately trying to cover, cuz that's the biggest shovel I've ever seen!

That is Hilarious! You never know what will be coming out of your child’s mouth. My son said O SHIT in school 2 weeks ago and had to write a sentence that I had to sign saying…” I said the word SHIT today.” So know does he not only know how to say the word but they taught him how to spell it and use it in a sentence. Learning at its best.

While my kids have never accused me of pole dancing (yet), I did have to repeatedly tell my daughter's preschool teacher (many years ago) that I was NOT pregnant... no matter how many times Rena may have claimed that I was.

Ooh! But my son recently told my mother-in-law that I fed him nothing but cupcakes all day. Luckily she knew me well enough to know that occasionally I'll throw in some cookies too.

Ha!
My son infomred me the other day that he has a sister. (which he doesn't that I am awayre of) and when I asked what her name is he responded "Horny" - I think he was trying to say Honey....

LOL, nice. I worked at a k-2 school until this year, and kids definitely spill the dirt at school. Parents would die if they only knew.
