I was a teacher for many years and got all kinds of interesting presents from my kids.  One year I had the daughter of  a woman who was in the same ornament exchange group I belonged to.  The mother and daughter went shopping for my Christmas gift I was told by the mother later to explain why I had received the gift I did. 

The mother had picked out a lovely gift for me she said.  But the daughter wanted to buy me a little ceramic bunny.  The ones that are hollow that you put cotton in and then pull it out the hole where their tail would be. 

From what the mother told me they went round and round about my gift right there in the store.  Finally the child put her hand on her hip and said to her mother.  Whose's teacher is she ? 

The bunny sits on the counter in my bathroom where it has been for over 25 years.  I did try to find out from the mom what she wanted to give me but good mother that she was she wouldn't tell.
