A reason why you should look over your child's homework

This is why you should always look over your kids homework. It only take a few minute in the morning and it can save you a lot of embarrassment. Following is the drawing a kid made about his parent’s work. The teacher asked the kids in class to draw how their parents make money. The teacher got panicked after looking at the picture the child drew. She rushed to principal’s office, who called the mother of child for some serious talk.

Before I tell you about the profession of the kid’s Mom, have a look at the kid’s drawing.

In explanation, the mother sent a letter with the child the next day in order to explain herself to the teacher:

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 Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it. Sarah's 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.

    That one is very funny! My daughter once went to pre-school and drew pictures illustrating the movie she watched the night before, the movie was Men in Black and I thought she was asleep, so I felt a bit sheepish that it was obvious to everyone I let my daughter stay up and watch a movie that was not really age appropriate. I'm sure there were other embarrassing things that were said or done at school but ignornce is indeed bliss.

    ROTFL! My daughter once wrote in her News Diary that I was refused permission to get into France. It's kind of true but she made it out that I was a drug smuggler or something rather than an out of date passport.....*L*
    Fun trip that was...not.

    Oh my gosh what a drawing!! I can only imagine the teacher's reaction when she first saw the picture! The poor mom! Stopping in to say hello, saw you were following my blog and I'm happy to do the same in return! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the night!

    Oh what a hoot! Can I say, so glad I home school. Emma, I am glad you stopped by Art's Chili and I hope to see you around often. I happen to love your name...It's my sweet 9 year olds, too. And your page here is beautiful. I also took a look over your weaning diary. Neat idea. I kind of did that on a calendar with my kids. To keep track of what they ate mostly in case they had an allergy attack. It proved very handy and was neat to look back over when they got older.

    Oh, how funny! I thought it was an axe. I would never have thought exotic dancer. Maybe we need to be concerned about what the teacher doesn in her spare time!

    What a great story, though! It's always nice to start a day with a good laugh!

    Priceless! Unfortunately, my daughter does this kind of work in school, so I don't see it until Parents' Evening!

    Fab! I think I'd be secretly thrilled if someone thought I might be an exotic dancer....I wish!!
