15 Times Dads Totally Won at Parenting
We all love Dads. Whether they’re strict or laid back, they all have a totally different parenting style to moms. When dads are left in charge of their kids, who knows what’s going to happen. But we all know that the kids are bound to have an amazing time. Even if whatever they’re doing isn’t strictly that responsible. Dads are never ones to be embarrassed about playing with their kids. They’re just practicing for being even more embarrassing when the kids are teenagers. We’re going to take a look at 15 dads who have totally won at parenting. And what epic parenting it is…
Some kids are lucky enough that their parents buy them a swing set to go out in the yard. But what if you don’t have a yard? This Dad’s pulled out all the stops and turned himself into a human swing. Just so his daughter can play. How sweet. We imagine there’ll be an age limit to this game, however. A few more years and we don’t think her Dad will be able to manage!
It looks like this guy’s daughters are getting to the age that every Dad fears. The doomed teenage years. Where they’ll be wanting to wear skimpy clothes, put on make up and starting to hang out with boys… A nightmare for all papas. This guy’s got the right idea, though. Just totally embarrass your daughters senseless by wearing the teeny tiny shorts they’ve been wanting. This will definitely put them – and probably everyone else – off wearing short shorts for life.
Another embarrassing father type here. He’s got the right idea. There’s nothing teenagers fear more than total humiliation, especially in front of their peers. So this dad has made his daughter stand in the most prominent place ever, so that everyone in the parking lot can see her shame. That’s what you get for lying to your parents. We imagine she’s probably grounded FOREVER too.
Sometimes it’s hard to be a dad when you have girls. It can be difficult to do all the girly things that they’ll want to do, especially when Mom’s not around. This dad’s got it totally covered, though. He’s clearly comfortable in his sexuality. He doesn’t mind painted toenails OR a coffee table covered in Disney stickers. Only if they are quiet and let him play his video game, he’s happy enough.
This is why we love dads. They’re just so laid back. This dad’s only task was to push his kid on the swing. But this apparently sounded like a lot of effort for this guy, who clearly just wanted to sit down and put his feet up with a beer (and we don’t blame him – although it could be bigger). Cue a bit of innovation and, voila! Who says dads don’t put any effort in?!
We bet this guy’s instructions were clear. “Keep an eye on the baby while I go out.” And why should this get in the way of his very valuable computer time? Just plonk the baby in front of the computer screen, that’s technically keeping an eye on it, isn’t it? I suppose the kid had better get used to it anyway, he’s in for a lifetime of staring at various screens!
It looks as though we have another dad who is very comfortable with their sexuality. This guy really doesn’t look as though he should be sitting at a tiny pink dinner table, does he? It’s just proof that dads will do anything to please their daughters. And it’s doing things like this which will make sure she’s always going to be Daddy’s girl. Just. So. Cute.
Here we have another pa who has taken laziness to the next level. Why bother holding your baby and bottle feeding him, huh? That’s for schmucks! Why not just use your feet and leave your arms free for doing proper dad things. Things like, playing on your computer, drinking beer, hitting the remote… you get the idea. Let’s just hope he washed his feet first.
It’s not every day that you get a dad interested in the different options when purchasing a stroller. To most dads, this is a particularly boring task. Anything will normally do. But introduce a Star Wars stroller to the market, and all of a sudden a lot more guys are interested… Which can only be a good thing. They’ll be much happier taking baby out for a walk in this cool design.
Dads are never ones to let their kids get in the way. Take eating junk food, for example. This little one is too young to be super impressionable, so this fella doesn’t have to worry about setting a bad example by eating a burger. He doesn’t even have to worry about using a bib – after all, his kid is working out as a pretty good substitute. We thought it was babies who were supposed to be the messy eaters…
Well, we just had the last dad who was using his baby as a bib. Now we have this guy, who’s decided to use his baby as a handy tray. We kind of like his idea, we all know what it’s like when you finally get your kid to drop off to sleep. You just can’t move or BAM! They’re awake again. So what else are you gonna do if you really need that deserved piece of cake? Tray baby!
Having three kids would be quite a terrifying concept for most dads. So when it happens, they’ve really got to make the most of it. This chap is using his three as assistants in his work out routine. Fun for the kids, and also gives him a pretty mean work out. If he keeps this up as they get older, he’ll be able to rival a professional body builder in the muscle stakes. We bet these boys will never act out.
Some people say that guys like having children as they can reproduce little images of themselves. It’s pretty much an ego thing. And who wouldn’t want a little version of themselves, especially if you were pretty awesome. We think this dad must have been thinking this exact same thing, as he’s styled his son to be a proper little mini-me. Just look at his little truck. Like father, like son.
There seems to be a bit of a theme here of dads with their daughters. We’re beginning to think that these dads will just use any excuse to be as girly as possible! Who needs sons to play ball with, when you can drink tea, get your nails painted or do your hair all pretty, like this dude. We’d love to think that this guy went out with his daughter looking like this. Cute!
When your kids acting out in the grocery store, what do you do? Most moms would probably use threats; no sweets, toys taken away, etc. Or, you could do what this dad has done, and not messed about. Just use a plunger from the home ware aisle and sucker the little guy. That’ll soon stop him. That’s one awesome parenting tip.
