This mom learned a cruel lesson from her daughter's homework: kids also draw the darnedest things!
As a homework assignment, one creative little girl was asked who she wanted to be when she was older and to illustrate her answer. Her innocent response is priceless — for more than one reason! The little girl drew what appears to be her mom, on a pole, surrounded by people holding out dollar bills and captioned her artwork with "When I grow up . . . I want to be like mommy!"
However, when mommy saw it, she thought the photo needed a further explanation. The next day, she sent a note to the teacher that read:
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.
Don't worry, Mrs. Jones, the snow shovel definitely looked like a pole to us too!
