What kids say (and draw)!

This one has been floating around the internet and teacher's lounges for a while now...but if you haven't seen it, you'll get a laugh. Make sure you read the caption.
This parent was saved by the truth, but there have been times when students will tell me things that their parents would be very embarrassed about if they knew their child was blabbing about it. (They're funny things.) All you parents out there, don't worry, I'm a professional-and it's "in the vault"!
Always check your kid's work before they turn it in. After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This picture is of me selling a shovel.

Pretty funny - I still have the art project my son drew of what he looked like, anatomically correct. On display for parent's night.

Oh Bev, that's soooo funny. I can only imagine what a kick all the parents got out of your son's art project up on the wall:)!

Love this! I was an art teacher for a couple of years. Now I'm a stay-at-home mom. I've laughed 'til I've cried doing both jobs! :)
