InstaLove Friday - My Ultimate Parenting Time OutFriday, December 09, 2011
Today, I am linking up with Life Rearranged for InstaFriday and sharing some cell phone Instagram pictures taken during the week.
So, we had a date night, during the week.
Jay-Z and Kanye West were there.
We were having a great time, together, watching 2 great performers, whom we have loved for over 10 years. Hip-hop is something that we have always had in common and that is deeper than just rap music to us. There are these universal truths that just speak you. They speak to my heart.
But in this moment pictured above, during what we thought was a parenting time out, we were brought back to being parents.
It was the realest moment ever. Kanye says that it's the realest verse he's ever written. And it is my favorite song, "New Day". They speak to their unborn children, telling them all of their hopes and dreams for them, hoping to always protect them and not allow them to make the same mistakes that they have made, promising that they will not make the mistakes that their fathers made. It is so deep. So beautiful.
At the end of the song, Jay-Z acknowledges all of the fathers. And right next to me is the wonderful father of my children. A man who I know shares those same hopes. A man who I share a vision with, to keep love in our family and a commitment to being partners and the best parents that we can be.
It was unforgettable. Definitely a Family Love moment.
Below is a You Tube video of the same performance, just in case you've never heard the song. I promise it's worth a click.
