Wednesday "Waff": The title is a little bit of "speech" humor. Kids often substitute a "w" for an "l", so instead of "laugh", I wrote "waff". I was going to spell it "waugh", but, when we lived in Georgia there was a "Waugh Street", only it was pronounced "Wah". There is the background for the title. I've been holding onto e-mails I've received just in case I
needed wanted to use them in posts. And, since Linda is taking a break from the Random Dozen and I've got nothing (since all I did yesterday was watch The Tudors and spend some time with MS), here's the first installment:
Why childrens' homework should be checked before it's turned in....
A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for her homework assignment.
The teacher graded it and the child brought it home.
She returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be perfectly clear on my child's homework illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money.
I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel.
Unfortunately, I don't know who to credit with the e-mail, so if anyone knows the author, let me know.And, on the subject of not knowing who to give credit for their writing, remember the post "How to Awaken a Teenager"? The author ran across my post and let me know it is her work! The author of that post is Laurie at Manic Motherhood. Go visit her! You'll be glad you did!
