Oops - I am not married to DS's teacher

Made a little mistake yesterday.

DS#1's teacher does most of his communicating with parents via email.  Yesterday, I received two emails from him.  One was quite long, the other was a single sentence with a bunch of attachments.  Everything was in Hebrew - of course.  We have a great program for translating things....but, for some reason that we can't figure out, I can only do a few lines at a time on my computer - DH can translate full sheets on his computer with no problems.  The emails from the teacher only ever come to me....DH is the only one who gets emails from DS#2's teacher so I guess it evens out.  Lol

So I forwarded the first email to DH to translate.  No problem.

I then translated the single sentence on the second email and it is attachments to be used for a research paper the kids are to write.  So I MEANT to forward that email to DH as well so that he can translate the research materials.  And I wrote a single line in my email - "Hon - this is for a research paper, I think". Apparently I sent the second email to DS's teacher instead of DH!!!  I got a reply from the teacher this morning saying he would translate things and send it to me...I am so embarrassed!!!!  Talk about being REALLY friendly with a teacher...I called him "hon"!!!!  And this is the teacher who speaks fluent English...so I'm sure he understood!  OY!!!!!

Haha! Well I'm sure he got a good chuckle out of it. When I was team mom of my husband's football team I used to get a lot of texts meant for this one lady's husband...lol. Thank goodness none of them were raunchy.

I love it...hilarious, I bet it made his teacher laugh too.  My son has a male teacher.  He called me earlier this year to let me know that DS was not feeling well.  As we were hanging up, I said OUT LOUD "Ok, love you!"  I could have died...we've had many good laughs about it since though :)
