Father’s Day was yesterday but it is everyday in our house and for those who believe in celebrating everyday.
We got a tweet from @GregorioUribe with a link to a video called “Mi Super Héroe” or “My Super Hero” in English.
The song talks about the relationship a son has over the years with his father from childhood, through heartbreaks during adolescents and into adulthood. With out giving away too much of the song’s message, it paints a picture of life’s lessons and how we will always view our parent’s as super heroes even when we no longer need them to come to our rescue.
At least that is my interpretation. The song is in Spanish but with the video you can still get a clear message from the video of how involved this dad is with his son throughout the day.
Mi Super Héroe
My parent’s first Super Hero Act
The first time I realized that my mom was a Super Hero was in first grade. I was bussed into another town and would sometimes get to school late because of traffic. Well my teacher thought it was funny to call me lazy and sleepy head. Imagine your five years old, you have to get up at 5:00 a.m to go to school and it is at least an hour away. Don’t you think you would fall asleep in class from time to time? Well I told my mom about what the teacher was calling me.
During her first parent-teacher conference, my teacher thought my mom did not speak English, and was basically over stating things and making sure my mom understood. ¿Comprende?
Once she finished telling her about all the things that were wrong with me, my mom basically told her she was going to have to work with me and I would have to work with her. And because of all the name calling, I was not willing to do any work for her. After my mother told her to stop belittling me in front of the class because there would be consequences, things changed from that point on. I saw my mom as Wonder Woman; ten feet tall, with a golden lasso, and ass kicking super hero. My mom is only 4’6 but boy did she get on that teacher; my mom was also a paraprofessional in public school so she knew the effort and tactics it took to teach children.
Beautiful Message through song
I want to thank @GregorioUribe for sending us the tweet. We enjoyed the song and the video so much that we saw it four times. Our daughter was dancing to it and it actually made me cry. We love sharing great content, especially when it is a positive message about the relationships between children and parents. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
When was the first time you saw your parent(s) as a Super Héroe? Do they still come to your rescue as an adult?
