My dog ate my homework! All right, not exactly. My kids have reading folders where they record what they read each night and they have to get a parent signature. Well, one of my lovely children didn't have theirs. She went on and told me that the dog grabbed it, kept pulling papers out and wouldn't give it back. Uh huh. And, miraculously, today (next day), it was completely in tact and I didn't see a single bite mark.... I never thought I'd actually hear that excuse!!
