Mom’s hilarious excuse note for tardy daughter becomes Internet sensation

(WWBT) -

If you’re a parent, you know the struggle can be pretty real when it comes to getting your kids going in the morning for school.

Every single morning can seem like a constant up-hill battle to get them out of bed and ready for school, coupled with all the reminders and tasks you have to get through, it stresses the importance of being prepared.

In a Facebook post now seen by thousands of people, a mom who has grown tired of her daughter’s tardiness crafted the perfect response to her daughter’s request for an excuse note to give to her teacher.

“Cara is tardy this morning as a result of a condition known as teenage-ism,” mother Nicole Poppic wrote in the note. “Symptoms are multitudinous, but this particular morning, she suffered from an inability to remove herself from her bed, and also felt the need to talk back to her birth-giver.”

The mom’s note has captured the attention of parents around the Internet, being shared more than 31,000 times.

There’s been no word on any more flare-ups of “teenage-ism” from her daughter.
