When you’re a parent, you figure out all sorts of hacks to things. Take this father, for example, who figured out that a video game controller could be used to play video games and prop up his baby’s bottle, and even better, at the same time! When Mom gave Dad some instructions on feeding the baby, she made the mistake of not specifying word-for-word how it should be done. So, the decision-making was left in the father’s own hands.
But hey, the father seems to be succeeding in his method, so why take away from his moment? As long as the baby seems happy and full, there isn’t anything wrong with the picture. We’re sure all you bottle-feeding dads out there are rushing now to try this on your own little one. We’ll say it now; we didn’t tell you to do it.
"I Can Do It Better, Dad"
One very important responsibility of parenting is instilling within your children the belief that they can do anything they put their hearts into. Within reason, that is. You don't want to give your child false hope or unrealistic beliefs about themselves. This dad seems to have taken things a bit too far when he let his daughter believe that she was strong enough to push him and their cart full of groceries.
The young girl seems to be putting every ounce of effort into the task. We are sure that the dad was just joking around and that the scenario got a bunch of stares and laughs from people passing by. Dads love being quirky with their children, and they don't really mind if people are looking on as they display their idea of parenting.
Just Hanging On
Sometimes you just don't have a choice. Not everybody has a drier. Those who are not fortunate enough to have a machine to dry their laundry are forced to hang all that wet clothing outside. This might result in some logic failures on at least one dad's side:
If the wet things need to be hung to dry, then when your baby wets himself you need to put him out to dry too, right? After all, it's not like the baby needs that time to run errands or do chores or anything. What does a baby even do? Nothing. Just hangs out.
Just Another Big Kiwi
Leave your child alone with Dad for the day, heck, even for an hour, and you might get a text message with a photo like this. We have to admit; this picture is pretty adorable and clever. The baby's head does resemble a kiwi, which is what led Dad to place a kiwi sticker on his baby's head. This is one of the more tame "dad fails" you will see, and just shows what jokesters some dads can be.
We wouldn't be surprised if the dad snapped a second picture of the baby in the fruit bowl among apples and oranges. At the end of the day, you don't know how much you can trust dad alone with your baby, especially if he's a huge baby himself. We hope that his wife has a good sense of humor.
Pro Gamer and Bottle-Feeding Master
The only way to succeed at the whole parenting thing is to learn how to do multiple things at once. When you have a baby, they often require your attention. But, this doesn't have to be undivided attention. This dad understands just how well he can divide his attention between multiple things. His idea of the perfect world involves parenting while continuing to do what he likes.
He seems to have found the perfect solution for bottle duty. Who said that you can't hold your kids close while staying loyal to FIFA? The baby looks happy and satisfied, while Dad gets to continue playing his video games; it's a total win-win situation for all involved. Plus, his baby may grow to be a video game champion one day.
