Growing up isn’t easy, something parents with teenage children know better than anyone else. They need to deal with their kids’ big mood swings and everything that goes along with them.
Children are wonderful in many ways, but when they go through puberty and their teenage years, things are bound to get a little bit rough. They develop a rebellious attitude and experience mighty mood swings – and suddenly, your kids aren’t as cute and obedient as they used to be.
Mom Nicole Poppic knows this all to well. Her daughter Cara was running late for school, so she asked her mother for an excuse note to show to her teacher.
And she got exactly what she asked for – but the note was not at all what she expected.
This Mom is not one to coddle her kids – and what she wrote to the teacher is now spreading over the internet like wildfire.
The funny note
The tardy note reads:
“To whom it may concern, Cara is tardy this morning as a result of a condition known as teenage-ism. Adolescents across our great nation are afflicted, and there is no known cure. Symptoms are multitudinous, but this particular morning, she suffered from an inability to remove herself from her bed. She also felt the need to talk back to her birth-giver! She seems to be recovering her senses after watching her cell phone fly out the car window. Please call me if there is another flare-up.
I think this was a hilarious example of how to handle something difficult and stressful in a fun and lighthearted way.
Nicole seems like a kind and caring Mom, and I think she loves her daughter above all else.
