I've certainly heard some interesting excuses for kids not doing their homework over the year. Usually some variation of "I didn't have time" (certainly not with all that video game playing and tv watching!).
This week, one of my girls told me that she hadn't been able to do her homework because, quote, "I had to sleep last night."
So I thought it would be apt to report this list from a while back. Enjoy, and feel free to add your own!
