I have been keeping track of their excuses for a solid year now – writing them down and chuckling insanely to myself at yet another doozy. You have to laugh or you’d cry, right?
So here are a few of my favorites:
The list of why my children get out of bed at night..
My feet fell asleep.
Where’s my car?
Isn’t this stuffed animal cute?
Is this doll mine or my sister’s?
My eye is really itchy.
I bumped my ear walking around my room.
My bottom itches.
My legs fell asleep.
I want to change my doll’s name to Isabelle.
I keep feeling the bed move.
My sister kneed me in the back.
Can I eat what you’re eating?
We want to get our baby dolls.
My sister peed on my stuffed animal.
I had to tell you I went to the bathroom three times.
We were measuring ourselves, and I think my sister is taller than I am.
We were doing knock-knock jokes and my sister mentioned kidnapping and now we’re scared.
Can we wear all of this underwear?
I can’t find Teddy.
I saw the suitcase move.
I went poop!
We can’t find our blanket.
I have hiccups.
My tongue has a bump.
Where’s my ring?
What are you watching on TV?
And, last but not least, the finally honest, blunt approach:
It’s boring upstairs.
