  • Those things have probably happened to somebody at some point. Besides one of my nieces decided to clean her Grandma’s newly painted toilet walls with the toilet brush. Thankfully it was clean…or appeared to be. The wall was treated with antibacterial cleaner….within a week of it being freshly painted. Needless to say Grandma was not impressed and neither were the parents.


  • I try very hard not to do anything other than carry out my original plans.


  • My plans are frequently foiled by kids – my own and others’ – but it’s usually illness.


  • I try not to get out of things, I like to get some me time!

    • I am with you – very rarely bail or anything.


  • Apart from illness never had to bail or use excuses.


  • Definitely don’t want to ever have to use some of those excuses.


  • Tummy bugs, nits and smearing with poo all happened here in our household for real, not being an excuse !


  • Oh my god I am in fits of laughter.


  • This is so funny and sometimes so true!


  • Hilarious. We all have made one excuse in our life time. Some more than others


  • Hilarious! Pretty sure they must have been listening to some of my conversations haha


  • Oh my! Did some kids really do that???? :-)
