The next few months are shaping up to be a blockbuster, mega hit, multi million, super hero save the world kind of a summer!
I was at the movies with my oldest son Cole (AKA…ColeTrain, Train) last week and we saw trailers for The Avengers, Bat Man and Spider Man. My family, also known as Team Sprad, has become obsessed with these heroes. We love Iron Man, The Hulk, The Incredibles, Nacho Libre (he’s a super hero in our FAM) and even Wonder Twins activate…form as a block of ice!! If you don’t get it, YouTube it and you’ll see the light!
So as I was watching all these trailers I was confronted with just one simple question…
Am I my worthy to be called my kids hero?
Then I received this text message just a few days afterwards.
I am one of the biggest fans of all these larger than life hero movies! But…
I am sick and tired of kids having to look outside of their family units for heroes. I am tired of lazy, passive, fathers that care more about the NBA Finals than they do raising up kids that will change the world.
I am sick and tired of mom’s that are more concerned about their image and status than they are preserving the purity of their daughters.
The time has come!
We need mom and dad to step into the pay phone booth, put on the mask, squeeze into those stretchy pants, embrace the cape and fly into their kid’s world and be a freakin hero!
