Well, my son cannot blame it on his brothers, but he tried blaming something on his cousins the other day. I totally caught him in a lie!

Brendan uses the "forgot" and "I did not hear you" one. Yep, so much fun! :)

MamaToo said...

love the thought of these in my future! :) So, do they actually "get out of things," with these excuses, or just use them with their Mama? :)

Fun list.

With the exceptions of # 7, 8, and 11, these excuses sound a lot like some I use OFTEN! Happy TT.

Nap Warden said...

I forgot...That drives me crazy. You forgot the failsafe..."I dunno". I hate that one to!

Ha! Those all sound so familiar!

Sandy Carlson said...

Another one: "Oh...." [Faraway look that suggests fever...]

Nicholas said...

Very familiar! In fact, I used to use those excuses too when I was a child. (And so did you, I bet!)

Rebecca said...

Ha!

pussreboots said...

My son's favorite is: "huh?"

Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Ooh, my kids could add a few to this list... and they're young, yet! What am I in for???

Happy TT, doll!

Open Grove Claudia said...

How funny! Do they work? I love the "my brother made me do it". I of course only had sisters!

Happy TT!

My TT is about my rules of living.

The Gal Herself said...

"I took a shower yesterday." My dad would have LOVED to hear me say that one. One of his pet peeves was that I always somehow managed to use up all the hot water. "I forgot" -- it's classic, like pearls and a simple black dress. It will never go out of style! (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Cheerio said...

Those excuses are all familiar to my ears.

SJ Reidhead said...

Why dump a good thing, I would say they worked for me but the cat ate my list!

Nadiah Alwi said...

Hhaahhaa...in a way, they're funny...

;D

Country Dawn said...

As a mamma and an elementary school teacher I hear this list hourly.

Patti said...

Oi! I'm way too familiar with some of these!! #6 and it's variation "Let me just save my game." (which then takes another hour!) are the top in my house! Grrrr.....

Julia said...

*chuckle* kids sure do always think they can get out of things LOL.....I've been around kids who tell me those excuses. And it funny when I caught them in white lies, even when I try to keep a straight face about it LOL

Happy TTs and hope you have a good/weekend ahead :)

Happy TT!

Malcolm said...

I have used quite a few of these in the past. Since I hated cutting the grass, #12 was a favorite of mine. Thanks for visiting my TT.
