Mom gets a surprise message about her daughter’s card to a preschool teacher

When Brinn Williams received a text from her daughter’s school principal on Wednesday, she wasn’t prepared for what he was about to share.

“The minute her school texted, I was like, ‘Oh no, Ruby’s sick,'” a 33-year-old mother in central Nebraska told TODAY Parents.

It turns out that Ruby’s teacher was curious about a card that the girl brought to preschool.

“Ruby loves to draw, color and create cards for everyone,” said Williams. “Last night, she asked me if she could use some of my stationery. I have rainbow stationery, so I said ‘Sure, of course, go ahead.'”

Williams said that he had forgotten he had a box of letters on his desk.

“She goes and does this almost every night, so I had no reason to believe the card wouldn’t look like it normally does,” Williams said. “I didn’t check it before she put it in her backpack.”

So when Williams got a text about the card, she was a little nervous.

“I think I was hoping that I would connect the dots myself,” Williams said in the text message.

The preschooler, in fact, skipped the rainbow cards for something more colorful.

“A best friend you can have sex with,” said the card intended for adults abroad. “How good is that?”

“I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m so sorry, I’m so embarrassed,'” Williams said. “I see these things happen to other parents and I think, ‘Yeah, that doesn’t really happen.’ And now I’m like, ‘Well yeah, because I’m seeing it firsthand right now.

The school principal told Williams that it made her laugh.

“Ruby insisted that she had asked permission to use it and the teacher said, ‘Are we sure about that?’” Williams said. “I confirmed that Ruby asked for permission, I just didn’t review her work.”

But it gets better.

“The director of the school program is the wife of my husband’s boss,” Williams told TODAY, adding that her husband, Josh, was mortified. “I thought she was going to die.”

Williams guessed what attracted her daughter to this particular card.

“She can’t read, but I guess she saw a card with plenty of blank space to do her drawing,” Williams explained. “On the card she wrote ‘I love you’ so she knows how to write some words.”

To avoid future artistic mishaps, Williams plans to create a special space for Ruby to create.

“I’m going to say, ‘Hey, I’ll show you the stationery box that you can pull out of and that’s the box you can use for the cards,'” Williams said.
