Being a parent can be weird.


I found this while going through old word documents. I think this is super funny. I’m sure I didn’t back then, but a decade later … yeah it’s funny.

Dear Ms Lord,

I am writing to request that both of my boys be excused, from the detentions they accrued during the last school year. Being disciplined for what occurred then seems fruitless and in many ways detrimental to any new effort, they may be making this year.
