Excuses-Dexter Style

I have to hand it to Dex, he has the most interesting/creative excuses out of all my kids. It doesn't necessarily help him get out of situations, but it does keep me smiling. Here are a few examples.

Dex, come and finish your apples- "I can't, my legs won't walk"

Dex, go and get dressed- "I can't, the stairs are too wobbly"

Dex, go take a time out- "I CAN'T, I HAVE A BUTT".

Dex, go in time out right now- "But I am naked" (it's not my fault he takes off every piece of clothing every time he uses the bathroom)

Dex, pick up the pencil and practice writing your name- "I can't, my hands are too big"

You hands are not too big- "Ok, my hands are too small"

Go wash your hands- "I can't, the water is too sticky"

Dex, pick up the toys in your room- "I can't, my eyes aren't working" (probably because they are closed)

Dex, you need to put shoes on before you go outside- "I can't, someone ate my shoes"

Dex, finish chewing your food- "I can't, my mouth doesn't work"

These are all excuses from just this morning. You can imagine what an entire day is like with him.


  1. Yup that's Dexter all right. Dexter, go get that shovel you were using. (I can't ...I don't know how) Dexter, swallow what's in your mouth. (I can't, I don't know how)

  2. He should publish a book, The Most Laughable Excuses. How funny, thanks for brightening my day!
