A second grader left her mother red-faced this week when she grabbed a bottle from her parents’ liquor cabinet for show and tell.
Meghan Maza Oeser from Mokena, Illinois, looked in on her daughter Penny while she attended the first day of class on Zoom on Monday and stopped in her tracks when she saw the little girl holding up a bottle of Malibu rum.
The assignment appears to have been to show the class ‘something that smells good’ — and Penny, understandably charmed by the liquor’s coconut scent, held up a large bottle for her classmates.

She’s not wrong! She was showing her class ‘something that smells good’ — a bottle of coconut-flavored Malibu rum
Meghan, a mother of six, snapped a picture of the funny moment and shared it on Facebook.
‘It’s moments like these that I wish I didn’t go all “b***s out” on having children,’ Meghan wrote.
‘Here’s Penny… Showing her class “something that smells good.”’
She added the hashtags #InJesusNameAmen, #BlessIt, #PleaseTakeThemBackNow, #HideYoWife, #HideYoKids, and #HideYoMalibu.
In the picture, an innocent-looking Penny seems oblivious that she’s holding something only grown-ups should have, and is smiling at her classmates and teacher on the computer screen.

‘Oh my god this made me literally LAUGH OUT LOUD!!! I almost spit out my mountain dew,’ said another.
Several said they can see their own kids doing something similar, while one mom said her daughter once brought her box of White Claw for show and tell.

Whoops! Meghan had another embarrassing learning-at-home moment in April when she accidentally flashed her daughter’s class
At the end of the first day of ‘e-learning’ at the start of the pandemic, Meghan took a shower and reached for her favorite Costco towel when she got out.
‘You guys know what happens to a super huge a** heavy towel draped over the body of someone that could pretty much represent the Lollipop Guild?’ she wrote on Facebook at the time. ‘It slips.’
Meghan was still in her bedroom in her towel when one of her kids walked in, with her phone screen facing toward her mother.
‘[She] whispers… “How do I end this?”‘ wrote Meghan. ‘How does she end WHAT, you ask? The MFing LIVE GOOGLE HANGOUT with her ENTIRE classroom!!!
‘So there I am… heavy towel… that fell around my waist… with my 40-something year old [breasts] staring Mrs. Definitelygonnaneedsometherapyafterthis RIGHT in the face!!!’ she wrote.
‘My boobs. Were in. Her face. And since my brain, now misfiring in EVERY direction as to what in TactualF to do next, is completely cashed out from e-learning… I stand up…t o flip her phone to the ceiling… and casually then don my late 70’s Coronabush.’
