Mum left mortified when staff at her daughter’s pre-school mistook her four-year-old daughter’s drawing of a ‘slide’ for an incredibly life-like penis.
Little Amelia Barnhouse had been on a school trip where she played on a slide so big she remembered it for the whole month.
So when she was asked to draw her memories of the trip, the young girl drew a long pink, ridged slide complete with head and two large circular steps at the bottom – leaving staff in fits of giggles, shares The Sun.
Mum Vicci, 34, was left praying the ‘ground would swallow her up’ when staff invited her in for a chat at home-time on Friday.
Meanwhile Amelia’s dad Patrick joked he wouldn’t be returning to the nursery again in embarrassment.
Vicci, from Cardiff, South Wales, 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.
“I didn’t want her to think we were all laughing at her so I said ‘Amelia, this is a really good drawing’.
The little girl has proudly enjoyed all the praise from her teachers and parents – even accepting a gold star from her future headteacher.
Vicci said: “The teacher said it’d gone right the way around the school and everyone had had a look at it.”
Tell the truth, What did you think it was?
