Mum Mortified After Daughter Draws Nursery Picture That Looks A Lot Like A Penis
A mum was left completely mortified after she was called into her four-year-old daughter's nursery because she'd drawn a picture of a 'slide' that teachers mistook for a gigantic, life-like penis.
Young Amelia Barnhouse drew the picture after a trip to the Brecon Beacons in Wales, where she played on a huge slide.
She enjoyed herself so much that when she was asked to draw something that she remembered from the trip, she decided to draw the slide.
It was pink, with two large circular steps at the bottom - you can see where this is going, right?
Her mum, 34-year-old Vicci Barnhouse, said that she was utterly embarrassed when amused staff from the nursery called her in for a chat at home time on Friday.
She said: "I wanted the ground to swallow me up. It tickled us all.
"I 100% thought it was x-rated as soon as I saw it - it looking nothing like a slide.
"I was queuing to pick Amelia up as usual and one of her teachers was stood by the door with a workbook to her chest - hiding what was on the page.
"She said 'can I have a quick chat? We were just wondering what park you take Amelia to?'
"Then she showed me the book and we had teaching assistants and other staff there and we were all roaring with laughter."
She continued: "I didn't want her to think we were all laughing at her so I said 'Amelia, this is a really good drawing'.
"We'll be getting the book at the end of July to keep for future reference, so we'll be saving it for her 18th birthday I think.
"I said to the teacher 'I can't wait until Dad sees this', and she said 'we can't wait to see Dad!'
"Patrick has actually said he's not going to take her or pick her up anymore because he's so embarrassed."
On the upside, Amelia thinks this is great. She even got a gold star from her future headteacher.
Vicci added: "The teacher said it'd gone right the way around the school and everyone had had a look at it.
"Amelia's in nursery and doesn't start school full time until September, but it even went to the headteacher who gave her a sticker for creating it.
"She's already in the headteacher's good books. She made her day by the sounds of it.
"Amelia has an older sister who's 22 and it's gone around her office too. Everybody has had a good old giggle today.
"But what's worse is one of Amelia's teachers taught me in nursery so she's known me for 30 years."
"If she's not on stage when she's older, there'll be something wrong.
"She's that child - the one who stands around doing something silly while you're trying to get a photo."
"On the trip we'd been on a little mountain railway - there was a tiny park there too.
"Amelia has been to massive parks, but she chose this one to write about. This was last month and she's kept that in her head since then.
"The best part of it is she only went on the slide once - for the rest of the day she was on the see-saw.
"She said the two round circles at the bottom of the slide are the big steps she tried to get up.
"All jokes aside, she loves drawing. Her teacher said she's actually really good, with the detail in this drawing for her age."
