All Tonette Mouton wanted was a photo of her two teenage sons, Donavon and Dillion, on their first day back at school after the holidays.
So when the camera-shy teens refused, she decided to pay them back by marking the moment in a truly unique way - by making a video of her performing a 'back to school' rap.
"Well I'm Mama T and I'm here to say pack your bags boys because it's school day," Tonette begins, before delivering the ultimate embarrassing mum blow to her sons, by reminding them to get their clothes ready.
"Get your clothes together, your underwear too. Don't forget to put on some cologne beau," she raps as her oldest son, Devon, 19, who has already left school, dances in the background.
"Just some advice don't act up at school or this mum will act like a fool.
Now go to school boys!"
Tonette then uploaded the video to Facebook, tagged her two sons and wrote: 'I bet next year Dillion will smile for the camera!'
The clip was soon shared more than 150 times and a friend suggested Tonette should post it on local news station KATC-TV 3's Facebook page. Two days later it had more than 3,000 likes and 1,400 shares.
According to Tonette, her older son just laughed at the video, but the younger one wasn't too happy about it. Thankfully, all was forgiven over pizza.
