Awkward Parent Teacher Conference Moments

I was reading this post about artwork created by children and was reminded of just a few awkward parent-teacher conferences I have experienced.

The fact that I have had so many may indicate that this is destined to be a new series.

Many moons ago, I went to my middle daughter's kindergarten conference expecting to hear wonderful things about her like she is exceptional and we are moving her to all day first grade instead I was greeted with this.

I thought it was pretty colorful but it concerned her teacher.

As did this one.

And this one was the reason she wanted to bring it to my attention. You see her accompanying story really made her wonder.

Did you figure it out? My husband isn't wearing clothing in any of the pictures. For crying out loud, he took her to the mall naked!

We had a long talk after that conference on the importance of wearing clothing.

In all seriousness, it turned out that middle G had no idea how to draw boy clothing. After that conference we spent the weekend learning how to draw shirts and pants on stick figures.

Who cares she thought there was a 'z' in the word the! What we needed to focus on was what daddy wore to the mall!

Do you have awkward parent teacher conference moments?

Come back next week to hear more of mine.

Really? That's what the teacher was concerned about? It's pretty goo that she even drew any cloths at that age, many kids are still trying to learn to draw stick figures. And who cares about the spelling, she was writing and that is really good!

Funny post! Cute pics! Don't feel bad. I'll have to write a post about how my stepdaughter drew a picture of our dogs when she was about eight. She pointed to the lab's genital-free backside and wrote "girl." She drew a big fat lipstick on the Dalmation, drew a huge arrow pointing to it, and wrote "BOY." Then she gave it to my boss, the principal!!! My boss thought it was hysterical and hung it on her door...

That seems really odd of the teacher!! It isn't like she drew him "anataomically correct" or anything. That might be cause for concern but jeez...
