Mom Tonette Mouton wasn't too keen on the fact her boys told her they didn't want her to take a first-day-of-school picture. So she retaliated in a most epic way — through a rap that's going viral:
"Just some advice, don't act up at school, boys, this momma will act like a fool. ... The next time, Donavon and Dillion, you don't want to take a first-day-of-school picture for me, this is what you get."
Woooo, you tell 'em, Tonette! Her oldest son, who has already graduated high school, was dancing in the background. She told us she comes from a very comical family, and her younger boys, one who is in eighth grade and the other a senior, have to let her take pictures of them now, right?
Well, she said her senior in high school just laughed, though her son in eighth grade wasn't too happy about it. But like a typical adolescent male, all was forgiven over some pizza. She did warn her one son, Donavon, is into music and is likely going to be "coming with a comeback."
People and media outlets who have seen the video all seem to love it. HLN gave her a "round of applause." KATC called her an awesome mom and posted the video to its Facebook page, and this Facebook user shared the video with CNN, saying that rapping momma "got even."
This isn't the first time we've seen a parent whip their kiddos into shape through embarrassment.
There's dad Dale Price, who ABC labeled the "most embarrassing dad." He would dress up nearly every day in a different costume and wave at his son's school bus. He has even dressed as a mermaid.
He said his son Rain didn't want his dad to come out and wave to him at the bus, so good ol' pop retaliated with costumes.
And this mom made her son hold a sign after she found out he picked a fight at school.
As for Tonette, she says family and education are very important to her.
And really, the clear lesson we are seeing in all of this? Just let your parents do their thing, kids. Whether it be waving at you at the school bus or just taking a first-day-of-school picture. Because remember, they can make it more embarrassing than you'd ever dare to dream.
