Dear Mrs H,
Would you please excuse Little J from homework until, oh let's say the New Year? You see the lovely Alice has posted the most fabulous new tutorial for mandalas and I simply must spend my evenings creating their rainbowy goodness. This after school work you keep sending home which requires my motherly attention is seriously cutting into my crochet creation time.
Little J's Mum who might have lost her mind to crochet madness.
Who knew the third grade would involve so much homework??? I don't remember the other two J's with this much after school work. Honestly, I can hardly expect the lovely Alice to put her fabulous tutorials on hold while I explain the times tables?
Perhaps if I sent Little J to school with a lovely mandala for Mrs. H she'll be a little more understanding???
