Always Check Your Child's Homework


Always Check Your Child's Homework-when-i-grow-up.jpg




















(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

Re: Always Check Your Child's Homework


LMAO

That is so true!

I'll scan/post it if the Mrs. saved it....in the meantime a story:

My daughter had to draw a picture of our house.
She did a fine job...right color for siding..railings............windows
She colored one of the second floor windows in brown.
When asked by the teacher: WHY?
Her reply: It's a piece of wood!

Our presence is requested by the teacher.

My daughter's picture was accurate - very accurate!
The wood was in fact a "piece of wood" as I had removed it to allow sheet rock to be boomed up there.
The teacher revealed she was going to call DYFS if our "explanation" was not "satisfactory"

LOL


Kids are BRUTAL...watch them ~ they are watching you and always tell the truth!

What did the teacher think, you guys had a dungeon room set up?
Jeez, I guess it's a good thing and you can't be too careful these days, but sometimes it's scary.
Once a case is opened for anything like that, it never goes away. When my sons were little and would fall down and get a bruise, I was always afraid somebody at their pre-schools would file a report.

I dunno what the teacher thought...maybe she thought [we had never met] we were sicko types that chain kids to radiators?
I agree, the teacher made the right move calling us in.
My wife is also a teacher and is acutely aware of any changes in her students' demeanor that might indicate abuse.

After it was all said and done, the teacher was laughing with us.

We were in the ER on 3 separate occasions with our 2 daughters for dislocated elbows. I thought for sure I would be fitted with a nice orange jump suit.
I dislocated my older daughter's elbow twice while grabbing at her to keep her from falling....our younger daughter one time while ice skating trying to keep her "up" [she "reminded" me for YEARS that I hurt her arm].
As it turns out, the elbow thing is very common w/toddlers...it's called "nurse-maid's elbow" and a trip to the ER is not necessary....screw that - they pop out easier than they go back in.

There was few month period in '02 or so, where we would see our family physician at the ER more than in his office over the course of a year ~ thank God for insurance.

Re: Always Check Your Child's Homework


My daughter was 3, my son 5. I was in charge while the wife was out doing some shopping. The kids wanted to go swimming and I really didn't want to have to watch them so, I made them put on these little life vests and I did the yard work in the backyard so I could keep an eye out for them. Both kids were taught to swim that year so they were basically safe.

The pool is above ground with a deck on one side and steps leading into it. Water depth is around 4 or so feet.

Well, the kids were swimming around and decided to climb up on the lip on the opposite side of the deck. I saw them and yelled really loud to get off of that ledge. My voice startled them and my daughter started to fall off. To stop her fall, she grabbed her brother and they both flipped off (yard side).

To keep the grass down, we have a border about a foot or so wide around the outside of the pool filled with colored rocks. My daugther landed first and my son landed on top of her. Kids being kids, nothing was broken but her backside, legs and back were scuffed up pretty good.

Had a hard time convincing the wife and her relatives I didn't beat her. We had recently adopted the kids so they could not explain in English what had happened until they could mimic the event.

OUCH


The first time I was "allowed" to take my daughter to the park w/o adult supervision [the Mrs.]...yup...I brought her home "broken"...just a skinned knee.

You really have to watch little kids...if there is even the slightest possibility of them getting hurt - they will
