During Christmas break, Little Boy (he’s in second grade) got a postcard from his teacher.
I thought it was adorable.
He was so excited to get mail. I was impressed that she took time to send out notes and act like she missed the kids during the break.
After the first day back to school, however, I discovered that there had been a homework question in the note, and he had been meant to have the answer when he went back to school!
Now that is a sneaky teacher trick.
So of course the students with good mommies who had read their kids’ notes had the answer ready.
But not my kid, of course. I feel I’ve been once again labeled Slacker Mom.
Still, I have a sound defense:
The U.S. Mail is private! It’s the LAW!
I don’t read other people’s postcards.
I’m not a slacker; I’m ethical!
