Today my eldest daughter decided she wanted to skip school because she was soooooo tired. She sent it all via text messages because I was in the shower.
Her exact verbiage was, "Can I skip school today? I am sooooo sleepy. I've got all my work turned in and my grades are good. Mom always let me when my grades were good."
To which I kindly responded, "I'm not your mom. Save your sick days for when you are sick. You better hurry or you are going to be late. I don't lie and I don't think your school would look too kindly upon a note that said, 'My lovely 17 year old didn't feel like going to school today.'"
To which she said, "I can get mom to right the note."
I didn't respond fast enough before she corrected her error, "*write". It was going to be a classic about skipping English. It's interesting that she knows her mom will lie for her. I wonder if she's ever thought about that.
Anyway, it has completely disrupted my whole day and it started at 8 AM.
Thanks for listening.
