Funky Fresh Parenting

I don’t know what you people out there in blogloand do for a living or a paycheck but part of your boy Funky Fresh job description is to represent the CSS at a trade show.

BOOOO-RING. Trade shows suck.

People don’t care about your products or services. They just want your damn goodies. Pens, gadgets, balls. Whatever. If the shit lights up, you will have a million and one people at your booth asking for your shit. We had janitors coming up to us asking us for stuff for their kids and pets. In the beginning you shun people like that off but by the last day and the last hour, with your feet hurting and you’re tired of wearing the same royal blue shirt with your company logo on it, you just start giving shit away to anybody that’s breathing. You don’t want to have to ship or carry that crap back to HQ.

So the highlight of my conference, other than finally seeing some black people on Day 2, was the conversation I somehow managed to get myself in today. The discussion was about none other than parenting. Typical for people that ummm….are parents right. At some point, everyone talks about their kids. What I found was that during the convo, I was the one giving the advice – and I think that’s because my child was other than theirs and had been through the stages they were describing.

Imagine this. Me and two white ladies in the middle of a conference hall talking about parenting. I felt like the black Dr. Ph.il or a blac.k ma.le version of N.anny 9.11. It was hilarious.

Her: So Fresh, Becky just won’t listen to me and I try putting her on timeout and she just rebels.

Me: You need to pop her lil’ ass when she act up. Bet she won’t do that sh*t again.

Her: Lil’ Annie has this habit of writing on things and last night she wrote on my couch.

Me: You need to pop that lil’ ass when she write. Bet she won’t do that sh*t again.

So naturally that discussion turned into a blog post and now into an idea. I’m gonna post more about my adventures in parenting. Not everyday but every once in a while.

Real talk. Real parenting. Straight from Funky.
