If you’re a #parent, then you’ll understand: The “Parent Rap” (VIDEO)


My beautiful wife was homeschooling our two sons when I left for work this morning and she was doing a wonderful job, as always. For whatever reason, this video then jumped into my mind, …and made me chuckle.

I needed this: the “Parent Rap” (VIDEO)
