Life Lesson

I received this forwarded message from a friend and found it so funny that I want to share it with you...read on:)

Why you should always check your children's homework

When asked to draw a picture of what they wanted to be when they grew up, second-grader "Sarah" turned in the lovely drawing shown below. Needless to say, the teacher was a bit surprised -- Mrs. Smith had always seemed like such a conservative woman. So she sent a note home to the girl's mother asking for clarification as to the picture's meaning. (read Mom's reply below the picture)




(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

That was funny.It's actually good to go through their homework before taking it to school, i learnt that way back.My son would sometimes sit with his homework with all seriousness and he will tell you mummy, i'm through.But when i check through it, i will found that he had done a different thing alltogether.Drawing animals mostly instead of writing alphabets or numbers.
