The boy adds in the letter that his decision to stay home was a difficult one filled with much consideration. He also politely asks his mother not to interrupt him as he will be “in [his] bed moping about the fact that [he] can’t go to school.”
He accompanied his letter with a pros and cons list encouraging his mother to reference it if she “required any further assistance.”
Fox 43 News reports that Sarah let followers know her mother did indeed let the boy stay home after all.
