Motherhood can include some mortifying moments and one mom wins the prize for most embarrassing call home from a teacher, thanks to the fact that her daughter confused K-Y Jelly with lotion.

As mom Espesa Jugosa Fupa from Walkertown, North Carolina shared in a now viral Facebook post, when her daughter innocently asked to bring some lotion to school, she had no idea what she was really in for. “My daughter asked if she can pack some lotion in her bag,” Espesa wrote in the post. “And, of course, I said, ‘Yeah go get the small travel-size one out of my top drawer.'”

Unfortunately as Espesa later discovered, it wasn’t the lotion that her daughter ended up grabbing. Fifteen minutes after dropping off her daughter on the third day of school, Espesa received a phone call from the teacher. “The teacher’s laughing hysterically,” Espesa explained. “She asked if I knew what she used to put on her legs. I told her, ‘Yeah it’s Jergens lotion.'” Not exactly.

When she arrived in the classroom she immediately noticed that her daughter’s legs were extremely shiny and guessed that she had grabbed baby oil instead of lotion. If only it were that simple. Instead, it turned out that her daughter had brought a bottle of K-Y Jelly to the classroom. Someone definitely learned a lesson that day: always check what your kids put in their backpacks.
