Quoting Mom of 2 Monkeys:" I called his teacher to let her know he had fell asleep when he did and she said just let him sleep ... [snip!] ... to aunt kaylas after school, so now hes jumping on his trampoline he got for school and is just doin hiw own after school thing"
This was my thinking too.
If he wasn't well rested it could make doing his "work" harder and then he might have a tantrum, break down, what not. And that's bad.
We used to make up believable excuses, like that teacher wanted to their mommy for dinner, and that's why school was closed, that they wanted to spend time with their family. And Jacob liked that and never questioned it. It was awesome.
Now that he's older, it's harder to make up a believable story.
