Excuses, excuses

We all have excuses for something, not losing weight, going to the gym or whatever.  I believe we start having excuses in childhood.  I sort of remember having excuses for not bring home something from school or not doing my chores.  After becoming a teacher and teaching many different grades and subjects I am sure children have the best excuses.   They have excuses for everything.  Sometimes I think some kids just give an excuse because it is easier than telling the truth.  I find that the students who tell me the best excuses are usually trying to get out of something, homework, classwork, or even a consequence.  I feel that I should have been writing down some of the best excuses through the years so in my retirement I could write a book and millions.  Ha ha!

  1. Haha! If only our kiddos would put as much effort into completing the assignment as they did creating the excuse for not doing the assignment! I love your book idea 🙂


  2. Children do have the best excuses, don’t they? Even my own 3 yr old has an excuse for not cleaning up after herself (her legs are tired). Love how you find the humor in them!
