Parenting 101

Lemme get a minute.
PARENTING isn’t a fuckin RIGHT. Having children when you are incapable of having them, and ruining them because of your fucked up headspace should be a prisonable offense.
The single biggest HONOR of my life is bein able to show up for my boy-beast.

It’s not about how old you are, how much money you have or don’t have.

I was 21. And I had around 600 in the bank. I had only been with Mama for around 4 or 5 months.

99.9 percent of anyone polled woulda said this was a disaster.

And guess what?

He’s the best person I know.

A lot of this is fortuitous because he’s just innately awesome.

And most of his greatness has NOTHING to do with me and EVERYTHING to do with his Mama.

But both of us from jump, were acutely aware that our job as humans on this planet was to get outta the way of ourselves, so that we could do everything possible to communicate and learn and ask questions, and stand together with one purpose.

What can WE do together as a UNIT, to make sure he has all the requisite love and understanding and room to breathe he needs so that he can BE a BETTER human than us.

Period.

If you are thinking about having kids for any other reason than experiencing the joy of giving and living and creating an environment for your child to learn and fly and become what he dreams, then please do us ALL a favor and fuckin SKIP this EXERCISE.

Emotional about the previous post, and up on my high horse.

Love,
Shane
