Like a lot of kids, Little Man has a love-hate relationship with school. He usually enjoys going — and often comes home excited about the things he got to do — but is less than thrilled with other parts. Namely having to get up in the mornings, staying for seven hours, and going for five days per week. (Half days two or three days per week is what he thinks would be suitable.) Oh, and the homework — he hates that, too. He considers it a form of medieval torture, and in kindergarten — when he’d come home with an hour’s worth of homework that required cutting, pasting, and coloring — I didn’t disagree.
During a complaint session back in first grade, Little Man gave us some interesting reasons for why he shouldn’t have to do the school thing.
You can’t say that the kid doesn’t have his priorities in order — Hulk DNA should definitely trump working on handwriting.
What are some excuses your kids (or you as a kid) came up with to try to get out of school?
