E is for Excuse

Have four sons and you'll have a built in excuse for everything and anything.
Project late?
Christmas decorations still up in April?
E-mail confirmations and responses not sent out for days?
Forgot to bring an entree to the pot luck?
Not wearing pants?
No matter.
As a mother of four boys, people barely expect you to make it out of your house alive never mind actually accomplish anything.
My house was messy before I had kids - but now no one actually expects me to clean it.
People sympathize with me like I've never been sympathized with before.
"I just don't know how you do it," they say, right after you say that, frankly, you didn't get around to doing it.

I'm a huge user of excuses. Over time I've gotten very creative with them. Had I known the mileage I could have gotten with four kids, I might have considered expanding. Hindsight's 20/20! Great post.

Well, I am already having issues getting things done with only a dog and a cat so four kids, you definitely have more excuses :P

Hey, I never need an excuse not to wear pants ("real" pants, anyway...I do wear sweatpants on a regular basis). Happy A-Zing!

Four boys, WOW! That takes a lot of patience but I bet it's wonderful too.

Good luck with the 2015 A to Z Challenge!
