Almost every year, I get something useful and something that makes me wonder, "What was this kid's parent thinking?" This year was no different. Gift cards were the useful items. The crazy 1 was a big stuffed insect. Am I paranoid, or are they sending me a message? Joking, kind of! The most unusual gift I got was my 1st yr teaching. My kids came from filthy rich families. ( Doctors, lawyers, politicians) I got several gold and ruby jewelry gifts from an expensive jewelry store, an envelope filled w/ 100 dollar bills, gift certificates, and a beautifully wrapped gift from a super happy mellow mom. She made me promise to open it on Christmas Day at home alone. I opened it at home/ alone, and was shocked. It was a big bag of weed and a bong. I guess she realized how tough teaching could be!
