Just Saying What Some Of Us Want To
Parents out there, I want to share something with you. You should actually already know it but if you don’t, I’m going to help you figure it out.
Your kid isn’t that awesome!
1. Just because your kid is singing at church doesn’t automatically make them a song bird. Jesus knows they can’t sing, you should accept it too.
2. Little kids can’t play basketball. It’s no fun to watch. I don’t want to see a bunch of kids running with the ball, crying, and stealing it from their own teammates. It is no damn fun to watch a basketball game for 30 minutes and the final score is 10 to 6. That *ish IS NOT FUN!
Parents, it’s alright to admit that your child doesn’t have any talent. It doesn’t mean that they never will, it just means that they suck right now. If you invite me to your kid’s basketball game when he’s in 9th grade, I’ll probably show up. But, please, don’t invite me to see lil’ man play before he can even tie his damn shoes. (Nothing worse than the coach calling time out to tie shoes, that is some bulls**t)
Some have called me a mean parent but I just try and keep it real with mine. Case in point, my lil mama has expressed some interest in singing and I try to be open to her endeavors. However, that little girl can’t sing. I mean, she isn’t like a dying cat bad but she isn’t any good either. I try and support her in what she does but my love can only go so damn far. I tell her things like, “you can carry a note” but I would be wrong to tell her she was awesome, right? I can’t even do her like that. She told me that she was going to sing a solo at school in the program and I was like “oh…….”. I’m just sayin.
I say all of that to reiterate to you guys, your kid isn’t special. Stop it. Maybe one day he/she will grow up to be the next LeBron James or Candice Parker, but now, they SUCK! Just accept it. Help them excel in school. But, if your kid is not athletic, can’t sing/dance, and is dumb as a rock, I don’t know what to tell you.
