Working Mom in Alaska

My friend Leslie forwarded an e-mail to me the other day that really hit home! As soon as I saw it, I knew it had to go on the blog. The whole scenario is something that could easily happen here. So, instead of forwarding the e-mail to everyone I know, I decided to post it here for you all to enjoy. Thanks to my sister-in-law for the assistance with downloading the picture.

Without further ado.....

Get a load of the picture a school-aged child created at school and proudly brought home for mom to see (be sure to read the parental response that is posted 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.
Mrs. Smith
