Mum Shocked To Find X-Rated Message From Son In Mother’s Day Card
Melanie Dadson, 28, spat out her coffee after reading the foul-mouthed insult - but it turns out her son Harrison had made an innocent mistake, and the word was meant to say 'cute'.
The blunder left Melanie, a mum-of-three from Northfleet, Kent, and her partner James Dadson, 30, in fits of giggles.
"I was really shocked. I actually spat out my coffee when he presented it to me but then we had a laugh about it," said Melanie. "He did start reading it out to me and got to that word and said 'oh I think it says cute but I think I might have spelled it wrong.'
"I said 'possibly, yes. I really hope it was meant to say cute'. He'd made it at school in the week but I'm not sure they vetted all of the cards before they were sent home. It was actually lovely because his handwriting is really good. I was proud of him because we've been working on it and he spelled 'because' correctly.
"Harrison was a bit upset that I was laughing at his card but I explained it was because I was really happy."
The card itself was super-cute if you overlook the unfortunate spelling error. It read: "I luv my mum because she is c**t. I luv my mum because she is byotiful. I luv my mum because she is pritey. I luv my mum because she is luvey."
Melanie, who is pregnant with her fourth child, says she didn't enlighten Harrison as to the true meaning of the word.
"He wouldn't have heard it anywhere or known what it means. I didn't draw attention to the fact it was a naughty word," she said.
"He accepted that he'd spelled it wrong and what it was supposed to be so I didn't see the point in introducing him to the real meaning. I shared it with my friends and mum and they thought it was great. It's definitely one for the mantelpiece."
