#AtoZChallenge: H is for Hulk DNA

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?

I’m a SAHM to two kids. When I’m not doing all the typical mom things (diapers, soccer, etc.), I like writing, reading, and playing games. Clearly I live the life of a rock star.

  1. Hulk! Hulk! Hulk! LOL
    I’m relatively certain once each of my girls got to the ‘just before winter break’ of the first year at middle school and said, “If you make me go to school, I’ll just die.”
    Of course, adults feel like that before the holidays, too. 😉

  2. We haven’t gotten any good ones other than “I’m smart enough” from the 5 year old. One time Crash tried to get out of brushing his teeth because the batteries died in his electric toothbrush died.

  3. Ten points to him! I bet if he wrote a note to his teacher saying the things he wanted to work on instead of his homework, s/he’d have given him extra credit just because of him knowing DNA. SO cool!

    1. He used to really catch people off guard when he’d talk about DNA and stuff like that when he was 4 or 5! “I’m a man of science” 😀


  4. Okay, your little man has a little DNA from this clan. My little lady here would rather build paper airplanes than “waste” her precious time doing school. Infact she leaves the reading thing to me or her old man. These little bosses are something else 🤓.
