Who needs a doctor's note when you've got the president's note?
One 5-year-old in Washington got a note excusing her absence from school Friday that any kid would envy.
Alanah Poullard, a kindergartener and the daughter of a wounded veteran, was visiting the White House for an event Friday honoring wounded military service members with her father.
There was one hitch: She needed a note explaining her absence from school.
President Barack Obama obliged, writing a missive to her teacher from the East Room of the White House as Alanah patiently waited.
See White House photographer Pete Souza's tweet about the event below.
