I write this letter to express my apology for being tardy these past two days. My baby has been ill for one week now and I have had to give extra care for him until early morning before leaving for work. This morning, I had to bring him to the hospital due to a high fever and couldn’t leave him with the caregiver right away.
I will make up for the lost time by staying for an extra two hours after my shift in the office to work for two days. If necessary, I will also accept additional workload. Although the cause of my tardiness was unexpected, I will not forget to immediately inform you about my situation should the same problem occur. I hope you accept my apologies.
Thank you. I am hoping for your kind consideration.
