There is a reason why dads are often thought of as the silly and fun parent while moms are the ones who manage to keep the children alive. Dads seem to live by their own set of rules; rules which sometimes involve eating ice cream for breakfast, wearing superman capes to school, and going to bed well past midnight. Dads don’t always think things through to their full extent, and a lot of times their debacles get them into major trouble with the person who’s really in charge of things; mom. We’ve gathered the funniest images of ‘dad fails’ that show why dads could benefit from some mandatory dad training before taking on the role of being a parent. By the end of these pictures, you might even ask yourself how safe it is for dads to be left alone unsupervised with their own children. You know, swings built by dad and the Cheerios Challenge isn’t exactly the key to success. Yep, dads come up with some interesting ideas, that’s for sure. But, at the end of the day, they love us, and we, well we love them just the way their goofy selves are.
Taking Things Too Literally
If you’re a dad and your wife leaves you in charge of doing your daughter’s hair, you basically have no choice but to panic. You don’t grow up with long hair, so you have no idea what to do with it. When this dad’s wife asked him to put his daughter’s hair in a bun, he took the instruction a bit too literally. Looks like dad should have gotten on YouTube to see what it actually means to put your hair in a bun.
Although this is a terrible interpretation of what the girl wanted, it’s also pretty brilliant. Not only does she have her hair in a bun, but she also has a snack for later. Dads are like a breed of their own, and this viral photo shows that they are full of a lot dad humor every which way they turn.
Bubbled Dr. Seuss
This is what happens when you hand over bath duties to dad. If you expect dad to scrub your baby clean and rinse them without any added flare, then you’ve got to get to know your husband better. Nope, dads have to bring in their own fun twist to whatever they do. This particular dad looks like he had some fun during bath time with his child, and hey, the child seems to be enjoying it at as well. This looks like it can be the inspiration behind a new Dr. Seuss book.
Mom, Melissa Nas, took the funny image as an opportunity to share with the internet, where it has since been viewed millions of times. Sometimes, bath time can seem stressful, but this is a nice reminder not to take life too seriously. And mom definitely can’t try and tell dad that he didn’t clean the baby, because that baby looks squeaky clean under all that soap. We just hope that dad didn’t forget to rinse the baby off afterwards, because that is definitely a possibility.
