Whoops! This little girl drew a picture of her mum that raised a few eyebrows...

Prepare for the funniest thing you'll see all day.

A lot is said about the crazy stuff kids say that can make for some absolutely MORTO moments, but remember this: Words are not their only method of communication. Oh no. They can hang us with their crayons too.

Which is exactly what happened to this American mama, who learned this particular cruel lesson from her daughter's homework: kids also draw the darnedest things!

As a homework assignment, this creative little girl was asked who she wanted to be when she was older – and to illustrate her answer. Her innocent response is priceless. The little girl drew what appears to be her mum, 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 her mum actually saw what her little girl had handed up to her teacher, she clearly felt the photo needed some further explanation. Which is why she sent the following note into school the next 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.

HILARIOUS! What have YOUR kids ever done to TOTALLY embarrass you? Let me know at Trine.Jensen@HerFamily.ie
