Always check your child's homework

The assignment for the first graders was to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grow up. Cathy submitted this:

Her mom sent the following note to Cathy's teacher the next 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

This was sent to me via email; I have no idea who to credit.

A friend sent this to me last week and I cracked up when I saw it. It's still funny ;)

My husband showed me this a couple days ago. I don't know if it's true but I hope it is! It cracked me up! I've had the boys come home with various artworks that depicted things I bet their teachers worried about - like once my eldest illustrating the word "crack" with a black pot with boiling water inside, the pot had a crack in it... - so this really hits home in the humor department.

This went around school last week and we all had a similar story to tell (whether a teacher tale or as parents ourselves.) "Kids say (do) the darndest things."
