With T.I. and Tiny enjoying an “adult evening of leisure” on tonight’s T.I. And Tiny: The Family Hustle, the responsibility to mold the minds of young people fell to Shekinah, the woman who believes being a mother of six isn’t really that much work. I mean, if she can sit through that long of a hair process, she can probably do anything.
Throughout an especially difficult day of pillow fights and frantic searches across crowded play places–compliments of King and Tiny’s plotting–Shekinah came to realize the truth about child-rearing. “Part of being a parent is you have to support the kids when they’re scared,” she says. Yes, and the other part is not cursing at them, or swatting their behinds when they disobey you.
While Shekinah’s day of fun has her thinking that keeping kids inside giant bubbles is the way to ensure proper behavior, America’s most beloved father with a connection to #THICKE (well, one of two) has a different idea.
T.I.’s Fatherly Wisdom: Live In The MomentWith zero children for an entire evening, Tip and Tameka double dated with friends at a modest, privately rented mini golf course. Naturally, a mother’s mind wanders to her children–specifically whether or not they’ve been left to walk the streets of Atlanta in search of nourishment from Chick-fil-A. Tip reminded his lady that sometimes we need to just let things be. “Don’t worry about Shekinah, don’t worry about King, ain’t nothing to worry, don’t worry about nothing but right here,” he explained. He can’t afford to lose a partner this late in the mini golf game! Competition with Tip should never be taken lightly. Noted.
But just because he’s off duty for a few hours, doesn’t mean he can’t remind his son to stop running in the house. Daddy’s sold too many albums to live with scuffed up floors.
