Sorry today’s post isn’t funny. But it needs to be said.
You parents who are constantly missing your kids’ ballgames, dance recitals, field trips, band concerts, practices, etc. because you’re always out chasing your own fun….YOU SUCK!
Ya know that?
YOU SUCK ROYALLY!!!!(I wish I could make the font way bigger to seem like I’m yelling!)
Your kids are changing everyday. And you’re missing out on some of the most incredible moments of their lives. And your life, if you could stop thinking about yourself long enough to realize this.
Their days of needing you are numbered. Your days of cheering them on and helping with their homework won’t last forever. It’ll be over sooner than you think. And there’s no rewind button.
When they’re grown, you’ll probably still have plenty of time to chase your own vacations and hobbies and marathons and online dating flings. But you’ll never have a second chance at raising your kids.
Please be present in their lives. Support them. Love them. Laugh with them. Just be there.
If not, please don’t bore us with stories and Facebook photos of all your cool adventures. We don’t want to hear about them.

(I’m not talking to you parents who sometimes miss events because you have to work your butts off to keep food on the table and pay the bills. You have my respect.)
(And I’m not talking to those of you who miss an occasional kids’ activity because you’re doing something fun for yourself. We all need time to ourselves every now and then. Just not all the freakin’ time.)
