Do you ever think about what your child may be saying to their Teacher?

Last year in Preschool my Son's Teacher would laugh because my Son was an open book. He'd tell her that Daddy farts every morning in bed & stinks up Mommy's room & that he LOVES Mommy's black toast (the Teacher asked if it was Nutella that he loved) NO, I said it was just burnt! LOL! This year in Kindergarten apparently the Teacher must think I am the worst Mom ever. She asked him what he eats for breakfast & he said a cupcake! She said "tell your Mother that cupcakes are a bad breakfast, tell her to give you cereal!". He failed to tell her that he got a mini cupcake along with a cereal or a pancake & fruit cup. If he doesn't want that he gets eggs & toast. The MINI cupcake is a side. OYE! How about your kids? Are they open books without all the info? He is totally ruining my image! LOL!

This is for fun, I am not being serious BTW (info is true though) LOL!

  • I told a first grade teacher once I was destitute. I actually used that exact word because that is what my mother jokingly always said. That Thanksgiving we had a box arrive from a local agency with a turkey and all kinds of foods and vouchers for food. My mom was confused and tried to convince the delivery person we really were not in need. Later my teacher approached her letting her know pride should not come before caring for your children. It slowly came to unravel and my mother asked the teacher if she even asked me if I knew what destitute meant. I do now. I might have been the only first grader and then second grader who would say my family is a hardworking blue collar family who is not destitute. We have what we need even if we don't always get what we want. I had no idea what that meant either but I was made to repeat it a million times.

  • This year my youngest told his teacher that we live in a 1 bedroom apartment with no access to water and the doors are falling off. His exact words. Sweet baby jesus I almost had a heart attack.

    His counselor called me and someone showed up at my house. The lady said she was tempted to turn around when she pulled up. We live in a 3-2 house with access to water LoL

    I really wanna know where the heck he got that story from.
